The graphics card conversation is dominated by the AMD vs Nvidia face-off. These two brands have retained a firm grip on almost the entire graphics card market for a long while now, and certainly the past few generations – despite Intel trying to muscle in recently.

The highlights of the AMD vs Nvidia battle, if you will, are usually centered around the cards that are the most powerful, and most highly specced – and, thus, often the most expensive. But the choice and comparisons do continue right down the spectrum into the budget graphics card zone. This was particularly present in the last generation of cards – which are still available, to a point, and should continue in this gen too. Though we may have to look to the rest of 2023 for those lower-end cards to catch up and be released.
