    Default Nvidia Or ATI

    Well, guys according to you which card is the best for gaming, personally I like Nvidia as I am using it from last 6 years however I have used ATI as well, but that was not good experience. I have used ATI card for multimedia work in that case ATI works great but when it comes to gaming I found it Nvidia best and awesome performance card so far. What do you think about the Nvidia and ATI?

    ATI is no more. AMD has overtaken it. but yes, us old-timers still sometime refer to it as ATI.

    till some years back, this question used to be still in vogue. but these days, people are more informed and check it well on the net before purchasing a GPU. i don't think there's any difference regards performance in the same level/class of GPUs, but only user-preference. for instance, i like the Physx thing on nVidia. for others, its just a cosmetic thing. also, catalyst drivers these days are more-or-less stable, whereas earlier (years back) frequent issues used to be reported every-now-and-then. but AMD has now really been capturing the Indian mkt., with its well-priced cards giving a tough competition to its arch and only rival.

    DirectX 12 tested: An early win for AMD and disappointment for Nvidia
    Windows 10 brings a slew of features to the table—the return of the Start menu, Cortana, the Xbox App—but the most interesting for gamers is obvious: DirectX 12 (DX12). The promise of a graphics API that allows console-like low-level access to the GPU and CPU, as well as improved performance for existing graphics cards, is tremendously exciting. Yet for all the Windows 10 information to trickle out in the three weeks since the OS launched, DX12 has remained the platform's most mysterious aspect. There's literally been no way to test these touted features and see just what kind of performance uplift (if any) there is. Until now, that is.

    Enter Oxide Games' real-time strategy game Ashes of the Singularity, the very first publicly available game that natively uses DirectX 12. Even better, Ashes has a DX11 mode too. For the first time, we can make a direct comparison between the real-world (i.e. actual game) performance of the two APIs across different hardware. While earlier benchmarks like 3DMark's API Overhead feature test were interesting, they were entirely synthetic. Such tests only focused on the maximum number of draw calls per second (which allows a game engine to draw more objects, textures, and effects) achieved by each API.

    Not much difference between these to be honest, despite what the fanboys would make you believe. I have never had problems with multiple Ati\Amd cards that I owned. Nvidia usually charges more for their cards and provides a little better driver support. Just look what is best in your price range, pretty much every product from either of these companies is reviewed multiple times on the net.

    As for latest Graphic cards, Nvidia beats Ati in terms of power and performance. You can check that by doing a benchmark between the latest graphic cards for Nvidia and AMD for any game that demands a lot of processing. I predict that in a couple of years, Nvidia will move even faster towards better graphic cards compared to AMD.

    That is because Nvidia has been paying game developers to optimize their games for Geforce cards by including their gameworks effects in the code. And if you look at the reviews, ATI\AMD and GeForce cards in the same price range usually trade blows. What you said about power consumption is correct , however, Geforce cards now have the best performance-per-watt ratio.

    Everyone knows that Nvidia is better than ATI. But, at least in my country - Brazil, the prices of Nvidia Hardware is plenty expensive. In 2011, I bought a ATI RADEON HD 5670. The equivalent Video card of NVIDIA was 25% more expensive. ATI needs to change your reputation to increase your sales in market global.

    Nvidia regularly gets upgrades so we can say it is more Ideal. Also most new games are Nvidia supported. Avoid those second hand ones because a lot of them are badly damaged.

    You put a important question. I would like to know if I use a ATI video card in a game suported by Nvidia, will the game performance be low ?

    If you turn off the Nvidia specific setting in the game, then you should be fine. However, as seen in "The Witcher 3", if you have Nvidia hair works enabled on an AMD Card, then you will suffer pretty significant performance drops, such as FPS decrease, and more frequent stuttering and freezing of the game. As long as you do not have the specific setting enabled, then you should be fine.

    Ohh thanks for your explanation. Ati needs to do a partnership with developers to increase "performance" the its video cards. In my country, Ati has a terrible fame as toaster.

    Yeah this is true, I definitely hope ATI get more partnerships, they did have their exclusive TressFX setting for tomb raider, which didn't work on nvidia cards. However with the new release of the radeon crimson software, hopefully more developers will favour the AMD/ATI side.

    Nvidia got their rep from the great performance of their product. It's the only way I'd go for a gaming (or any high performance) video card.

    Nvidia is the winner. I have been using GTX 560 ti for over two years now for gaming purposes, and it has been great so far. But since the gaming industry is developing and games are demanding more, I will be upgrading to 980 ti very soon. As for ATI they are just not cut for gaming compared to Nvidia
