Here's Benchmarks For Every Card AMD And NVIDIA Have Released In 2016

It’s a big year if you’re a PC gaming enthusiast. Alongside Intel’s new Extreme Edition CPUs, both Nvidia and AMD have released new graphics cards. All price points from $300 to $1200 have been overhauled with new GPUs offering much-increased performance, more efficient power consumption and new VR-friendly feature-sets — so here’s how they all perform relative to each other.

NVIDIA's VR Funhouse Is Coming To Steam

Later this month, NVIDIA is releasing what it calls “its first game” onto Steam. That game is a short virtual reality experience called VR Funhouse.

After the launch of NVIDIA’s top-of-the-line GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070, gamers with deep pockets jumped at the opportunity to buy these new, powerful cards. But at $700 for a 1070 and over $1100 for a 1080 in Australia, a lot of PC enthusiasts simply didn’t have the spare cash or disposable income to drop on a new GeForce card. That’s why so many people were — and still are — keen on AMD’s equally new Radeon RX 480, which is barely over $300.

To counter that, NVIDIA has a third card to release in 2016, designed to battle that RX 480 on both price and performance. It’ll be $US250, and it’s faster than last generation’s top-end GTX 980: meet the GeForce GTX 1060.

About a year ago, NVIDIA quietly put everyone on notice. If you wanted the latest drivers and the latest updates to their GeForce Experience middleware program, you’d have to register an account. Simply forking out for a NVIDIA GPU wasn’t enough; you had to hand over some of your details.

GeForce Experience has quietly motored on since then, but could be about to change. NVIDIA has rolled out an update to the beta branch of the software that completely overhauls the user interface and the way the ShadowPlay/Share software is packaged. And if you want any of it, you’ll have to login.
