Graphic Cards by Nvidia or AMD, which one is for you?

AMD or Nvidia GPULooking for the right video card these days can be a challenge since there is so much to chose from!  AMD has made some serious awesome cards in 2020 with their RX 5700 XT series graphics card  and the RX 5600 XT which hit the sweet spot for Ultimate 1080p gaming and later tried with the AMD RDNA 2 architecture, the Radeon RX 6800 Series balances high quality visuals with exceptional performance. Fast forward to 2022 and Nvidia launched the GeForce RTX 4090, which as expected leaped to the top GPU rankings and benchmarks.

At the other end of the pricing spectrum for 2022, the new Intel Arc A770 and Intel Arc A750 finally arrived, and while they're not the fastest GPUs, they have promise and are priced below their direct Nvidia competition.  Lets not forget AMD has itsmuch anticipated RX 7900 XTX / XT and details of the RDNA 3 architecture as well, with cards set to arrive on December 13, 2022.

Here are the rankings for the latest GPU's in 2022 that use Real-world game benchmarks to determine the rankings of these graphics cards. Mostly in terms of Frames Per Second, not TFLOPS or GB/s or other specification theoretical numbers that are meaningless for the gamer. GPU benchmark results are measured against the user preferred gaming resolution and game quality settings listed below.  Although graphics card performance varies greatly among different games, this comparison chart provides a general ranking for graphics cards so you get a good idea on how each compares when gaming.
