Does It Matter Which Graphics Card Manufacturer You Choose?

Quote:When you shop for a graphics card, most of the time you’ll settle on a specific model you want, then look for the best price—but you’ll find that multiple manufacturers make the same model. Do the differences between them matter?

Why Are There Different Manufacturers, Anyway?

It’s an odd situation—almost like if you went shopping for an F-150 pickup truck, and the salesperson asked you if you wanted the Ford, Chevy, or Dodge version. For example, a quick search for a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 card on Newegg reveals models made by EVGA, MSI, Zotac, ASUS, and Gigabyte—all on the first page! AMD Radeon graphics cards have a similar variety of suppliers. But within the same specific card design, pretty much all of them have the same capabilities. What gives?

Huh, that's interesting. I always thought it was silly why NVidia would license/stock out its GPUs to other OEMs, rather than sell them directly.

Hmmm...interesting read there. Thanks! I use a Palit R7 (AMD) at the moment. It does matter when you do a lot of graphics / video work. Switching to an R9 perhaps next year (hopefully 8gb/4gb 256bit).
