brief history of video cards: 64 GPUs tested from the last five years - PCSTATS.com brief history of video cards: 64 GPUs tested from the last five years
Mon, Dec 03 2012 | 11:00AM | Filed under: Beginners Guides| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Today we published a rather special article. We took 64 graphics cards from the last five years, and tested each one with our current graphics benchmarks. It is quite interesting to see how each successive generation of AMD (ATI back then) and Nvidia video cards pushed performance to another level. We started with the ATI Radeon HD 3000 series and the Nvidia GeForce 8000 series, which were the first DirectX 10-compatible video cards. We picked the high-end cards from each generation, and also the mid-range ones. Surprisingly, a lot of these hold up quite well, even in today’s demanding video games. If your PC is still running on an old graphics card, now you can see exactly how much (or how little) you will gain if you buy a newer one.
