This is a companion piece to my Best Cheap GPU For A Gaming PC 2016 – Picking A Graphics Card article. Here we’ll be looking at the raw numbers of the GPUs mentioned there. Unlike the Intel Vs AMD articles, Nvidia Vs AMD is a much closer race. For some of these the winner is clear, but for others the circumstances play a larger role in what card you should get. So lets take a look at the AMD R9 360 and the Nvidia GTX 750 Ti.
AMD R7 360 Vs Nvidia GTX 750 Ti – GPU Comparison
|AMD R7 360||Nvidia GTX 750 Ti|
|Memory Clock Speed||1,500MHz||1,502MHz|
|Floating Point Performance||1,613 GFLOPS||1,728 GFLOPS|
|Future||AMD is moving ahead with a 14nm die for their next generation cards, smaller than Nvidia’s 16nm. Whether we will see a performance boost on the AMD side is unknown. Upgrading a GPU is universal though, so you aren’t tied down to a company.||Nvidia has always been able to eke out a little more performance from their cards. I don’t expect their next GPUs to be any different. This years new releases will be very interesting. Upgrading a GPU is universal though, so you aren’t tied down to a company.|

In all honesty, both of these GPUs are great. You really can’t go wring buying one or the other at this price point. The only thing I would advise is to shop around. The prices for GPUs varies wildly for many reasons. They can both be found right now for sub $100, but that may be quick to change. Make sure you pair the GPU with a good processor, with higher end GPUs you can get away with spending a little less on the CPU, but that isn’t true for these cards. I’d recommend pairing it with the i3-6100.
