GPU Benchmarks and Hierarchy: Graphics Cards Ranked

Our hierarchy of GPU benchmark scores ranks all the current and previous generation graphics cards in terms of performance, using a suite of gaming tests. Whether it’s playing games or doing high-end creative work like 4K video editing, your graphics card typically plays the biggest role in determining performance with even the best gaming CPUs taking second place. Note that the table below is based solely on the scores from performance-based GPU benchmarks. We have a separate article that lists the best graphics cards, based on all factors, including price, graphics card power consumption and overall efficiency. But, what if, for example, you’re shopping around and want to know whether an AMD RX 5600 XT is faster than an Nvidia GTX 1660 Super and, if so, by how much? To help you decide which graphics card you need, we’ve created the GPU hierarchy table below, which ranks all the current and recent chips from fastest to slowest. We’ve assigned each a score based on our current test suite of nine gaming-based GPU benchmarks, running at ‘medium’ and ‘ultra’ settings with resolutions of 1080p, 1440p, and 4K. For comparison purposes, the fastest card, based on combination of all nine GPU benchmarks, gets normalized to 100 percent, and all others are graded relative to it.

It’s important to note that Nvidia’s new GPUs (GeForce RTX 3090, and GeForce RTX 3080, and GeForce RTX 3070) are all coming in the next month or so, but we don’t have them yet so they’re not on the charts. Based on Nvidia’s claims, all three of those will score higher on GPU benchmarks than the RTX 2080 Ti, thanks to improvements in the Ampere architecture. AMD’s Big Navi is also expected soon, with the latest rumors indicating an October release date. Intel’s Xe HPG discrete GPU currently only has a 2021 tentative launch date.
