Update from 08/05/2020

Another month has passed, unfortunately without any innovations on the graphics card market. But that should change towards the end of the year. According to current rumors, Nvidia's new generation of graphics cards, "Ampere", will come onto the market in the third quarter of 2020 (September). A performance increase of around 50 percent and a ray tracing performance that is twice as high can be expected. At the end of the year, AMD's first generation of graphics cards with hardware ray tracing support Navi 2X should be available. Various leaks here give hope for a video memory that is twice as large and twice as high a performance compared to the RX 5700 XT. However, we assume that initially only the top models from the respective manufacturer will be available and that the cheaper models will not follow until the beginning of 2021.

Since the beginning of the year it has been observed that graphics cards are getting cheaper and cheaper, and this trend has intensified again with the lowering of VAT in Germany. If you look at the prices of the Full HD GPUs over the last six months, only the price for the Radeon RX 590 has increased by five euros. On average, the acquisition costs have fallen by a good 15 euros. The GTX 1660, GTX 1660 SUPER and RTX 2060 from Nvidia and the RX 5600 XT from AMD have benefited most. The price drop here is between 20 and 28 euros, which has messed up our recommendations in the respective price ranges. A detailed table on price developments can be found at the end of the article.

The graphics card is largely responsible for the game performance of your computer. But you don't always have to pay huge sums of money to enjoy the latest game titles, because good graphics cards for full HD resolution are available from 135 euros. We have all current AMD Radeon RX and Nvidia GeForce GTX GPUs up to 300 euros in the test, so that you can be spoiled for choice. In the following picture gallery we present our purchase recommendations and awards based on our measured values ​​with the price-performance winner, the recommendation of the editors, the "attractive price" and the "innovative technology".

Editor's recommendation: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER is our clear buy recommendation for anyone looking for uncompromising performance for full HD gaming. The graphics card is not only able to display current game titles at high to ultra game settings with 60 or more frames per second, but also works very energy-efficiently and is also extremely inexpensive. Price point: from 198 euros
Our model recommendation: KFA2 GeForce GTX 1660 Super OC 6GB
