The rivalry between AMD and Nvidia has kept pushing GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) gaming performance into a whole new level for over 15 years since AMD has acquired ATI in 2006 and Nvidia’s acquisition of 3dfx Interactive took place at the end of 2000. Fierce competition between two giants in PC segment is more exciting than before, thanks to latest RDNA GPU architecture from AMD and Turing based GPU design from Nvidia that can run Ray Tracing titles with high frame rates. Following table shows similarly priced current rival GPUs but performance varies between them when you put game API (Apllication Protocol Interface) or exclusive sponsored title into equation.

For the past 5 years, AMD was trailing behind Nvidia in high-performance GPU segment, however, midrange AMD Polaris GPUs brought stiff competition against Nvidia’s Pascal midrange lineup. Currently, high-end performance leader RTX 2080 Ti has unrivaled performance but costs too high. Interestingly, back in January 2019, AMD released Radeon VII huge card to compete against RTX 2080 below $800 market price. At last, RX5700XT and RX5700 came to light to oppose RTX 2070 and RTX2060, suddenly, Nvidia decided minimal upgrade for them with distinct SUPER marketing name. So, RTX 2070 Super is matched and little faster opponent for RX5700XT, on another side, RTX2060 Super is battling against RX5700. Below table illustrates compiled performance metrics derived from the latest overall game benchmarks, the higher is better.
