AMD Graphics Cards List in Order of Performance

There are so many different AMD Graphics Cards for purchase that it can get confusing at times. With price-inflations and out-of-stock items, it can be difficult to gauge performance by price alone.

That is why I created this List of AMD Graphics Cards in order of Performance. You can sort the list by rendering and gaming performance or value to find the best GPU for your needs.

Best AMD Graphics Card for the money

Although it’s not cheap at $649, the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT is the currently best AMD Graphics Card for the money.

With its 16GB of VRAM, it clocks up to 2250 MHz, making any modern Game run at smooth framerates. 4608 Stream Processors accelerate gaming and rendering workloads based on OpenCL and the Power Draw of 300W is decent for such a top-tier GPU.

Best AMD Graphics Card under 500$

The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT is the best AMD Graphics Card you can buy for under 500$. It sports 2560 stream processors and has 8GB of VRAM. Its base Frequency clocks at 1605Mhz and boosts up to 1905Mhz.

Although the GPU officially has a Total Board Power of 225W, AMD recommends a minimum PSU Wattage of 600W.

Best AMD Graphics Card under 400$

The AMD Radeon RX 5700 too comes with 8GB of VRAM, but has less stream processors (2304) and lower clock speeds (1465Mhz base – 1725Mhz boost) than the 5700 XT.

It gets by with lower power consumption (180W Total board power) too and costs 50$ less than the 5700XT. For those of you shopping in the 300$ – 400$ range, this GPU is the sweet spot.

Best AMD Graphics Card under 200$

The AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT is the best AMD GPU under 200$. It also comes with 8GB of VRAM, which is astonishing for a GPU at this price.

Its 1408 Stream Processors accelerate your rendering and gaming needs and with boost clocks of up to 1845Mhz you’ll be able to play most modern Games at smooth framerates and mid-to-high settings.
