These are the best graphics cards for your PC, from speedy high-end silicon to more reasonable GPUs.
The world's most powerful GPU will ruin your bank balance. The new Titan in all but name, the 3090 isn't aimed at average gamers. Instead, this is for professionals who need a monster GPU for intensive video editing.
CUDA cores: 10,496 | Base clock: 1,395 MHz | Boost clock: 1,695 MHz | TFLOPs: 35.68 | Memory: 24GB GDDR6X | Memory clock: 19.5 GT/s | Memory bandwidth: 935.8 GB/s
A monster of a card that gets close to 3090 performance for just a third of the asking price of Nvidia's beast. For that reason, it's simply the better buy for any PC Gamer without any ulterior motives of the pro creator variety.
RDNA cores: 5,120 | Base clock: 1,825 MHz | Boost clock: 2,250 MHz | TFLOPs: 23.04 | Memory: 16GB GDDR6 | Memory clock: 16 GT/s | Memory bandwidth: 512 GB/s
Perhaps the only high-end Ampere that's anything close to affordable. The fact the RTX 3070 can match the previous GPU king—the 2080 Ti—for less than half its price tag is hugely impressive. A terrific 4K performer.
CUDA cores: 5,888 | Base clock: 1,500 MHz | Boost clock: 1,725 MHz | TFLOPs: 20.37 | Memory: 8GB GDDR6 | Memory clock: 14 GT/s | Memory bandwidth: 448 GB/s
A great GPU for the full stack of resolutions that has decent ray tracing capability to boot, courtesy of second generation RT Cores. At $399, the RTX 3060 Ti is the cheapest Ampere card to date, and a close relation of the 3070.
CUDA cores: 4,864 | Base clock: 1,410 MHz | Boost clock: 1,665 MHz | TFLOPs: 16.20 | Memory: 8GB GDDR6 | Memory clock: 14 GT/s | Memory bandwidth: 448 GB/s
A highly competitive card that comes so close to matching Nvidia's RTX 3080. Slightly cheaper than the 3080, and offering more VRAM than its rival, this enthusiast card is perfect for PC players targeting 4K/60fps experiences.
RDNA cores: 4,608 | Base clock: 1,825 MHz | Boost clock: 2,250 MHz | TFLOPs: 20.74 | Memory: 16GB GDDR6 | Memory clock: 16 GT/s | Memory bandwidth: 512 GB/s
The best GPU you can buy in 2021... even if it is rare as pigeon eyelashes. The RTX 3080 offers a huge performance boost over the previous RTX 20-series, handling ray tracing far more confidently than the 2080 Ti.
CUDA cores: 8,704 | Base clock: 1,440 MHz | Boost clock: 1,710 MHz | TFLOPs: 29.76 | Memory: 10GB GDDR6X | Memory clock: 19 GT/s | Memory bandwidth: 7608 GB/s
