The Nvidia GTX 970 is a game changer in terms of performance per watt and value for money. The GTX 970 is based on Nvidia's ground-breaking Maxwell architecture which delivers considerable clock for clock performance gains over Kepler, its predecessor. Comparing the GTX 970 and 780 Ti shows that the two cards offer comparable performance yet the new GTX 970 costs nearly half as much! Unsurprisingly Nvidia are discontinuing the 780 Ti as it's now largely redundant. These price to performance gains typically occur once or twice a decade and although the new Maxwell architecture will improve down the line with the release of the Ti/Titan versions, at the moment the 970 offers the best value for money on the market by miles. Since this summary was originally written AMD have slashed prices and older Nvidia models (780/780 Ti/770) have also been hugely discounted.

AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 is a mid-range, first generation Navi 10 gaming GPU. Navi (aka Radeon DNA or RDNA) is built on a 7nm process and includes new anti-lag and image sharpening technology. The 5700 is a high performance 1440p card with 36 compute units (compared to 40 in the 5700 XT), a game frequency (comparable to NVIDIA’s boost frequency) of 1.63 GHz (versus 1.76 GHz in the 5700 XT) and 8 GB of GDDR6 high-speed memory, delivering 448 GB/s of memory bandwidth. At $349 USD, the 5700 is more affordable than the $399 USD 5700 XT, its approximately 15% faster and more power hungry sister card (225 W for the 5700 XT, versus 180 W for the 5700). However, initial benchmarks suggest the 5700 offers comparable value for money. Those same benchmarks show that the 5700 is around 15% (varies by game) faster than NVIDIA’s similarly priced RTX 2060. Not to be outplayed, NVIDIA have swiftly responded by announcing new Super (refresh) versions of the RTX 2060, 2070 and 2080, for sale by the end of July 2019. Benchmarks and prices are necessary to confirm which graphics card offers the best bang for buck. What is certain is that there is a lot more choice in the upper end of the GPU market. [Jul '19 GPUPro]
