A list of Nvidia Graphics Cards in order of performance is something I keep looking for myself. That is why I have put together this page for you with the most recent and some older but still widely used Nvidia Graphics Cards in a list that you can sort to your liking.

The performance metrics that you see in the list cover different areas:

Nvidia Graphics Cards have lots of technical features like shaders, cuda cores, memory size and speed, core speed, overclockeability and many more.

The list could go on, but what I want to give you here is a quick and easy overview of Nvidia Graphics Cards in order of Performance throughout two of the most popular use cases on this site.

Rendering and Gaming.

I have taken the performance average of currently Popular gaming benchmarks such as Futuremark and assigned points depending on the benchmark score.

To find the best performing Nvidia Graphics Cards in Rendering I took the average of the three most popular GPU Render Engines: Redshift, Octane and Vray-RT and gave points depending on the score.

What you ultimately get from this list is a Nvidia Graphics Cards comparison:

What Nvidia Graphics Card do you want to buy?

Hi, I'm Alex, a Freelance 3D Generalist, Motion Designer and Compositor.

I've built a multitude of Computers, Workstations and Renderfarms and love to optimize them as much as possible.

Feel free to comment and ask for suggestions on your PC-Build or 3D-related Problem, I'll do my best to help out!

Hi Alex, I have a little question for you. I am currently working with basic photogrammetry, but my graphics card is not so good. I wanted to know if my core i-7 6700 would be capable of working well with a GTX 1650 4GB. I don’t need tons of quality for my projects, I just need decent models that I can 3D-print. Thanks for the amazing work, I love your page and the content you upload, it is quite educational and refreshing!

Hi Alex,
After searching for so long I finally ended up here, thank God and thank you. Finally a place to see different card comparison based on rendering and not just the gaming benchmarks. Can you suggest me between Gtx 1660 Ti, gtx 1650 and 1060 3GB. I’ll be doing some video editing, but mostly blender and illustrator. I’m going to buy a laptop which has these variants with i5 9300h or i7 9750h (laptop is yet to launch, so not sure exact combinations). I’ve doubts whether the Turing architecture of these 16xx series GPUs can be utilised by blender and illustrator.


Hi Alex,

Can i use Nividia Geforce RTX 2060 Graphics Card for Revit 2017 products ??

Rodrigo Molina

Hi Alex, there isn´t much info about the gtx 1666 and the rtx 2060 for gpu rendering with redshift. Are you planing to do benchmarks with this cards with this renderer?

Hi Alex,

Approximately how much will it cost to build a computer with CPU Intel 19 900k – 8 cores/ 16 Threads, 3.6GHz Base Clock, Turbo Boost 5Ghz , Graphics Card: Nvida Quadro Series, RAM: 64 GB?


Hi Alex,
thanks so much for your fantastic website. It helps me so much. I need a new build and based on your recommendations, I’m leaning toward the i9 99ooK – decided to favor modeling/anim over rendering although would love to have both :). I have 2 questions though.
1) regarding the GPU, is putting 2 x RTX 2060 better than having 1 RTX 2080 (around $700 vs $800 for a performance of 2 x 277 vs 373)? Are the GPU performances addable like this?
2) I’m using Maya and render with Arnold (for now mostly CPU-render oriented). I get what you said about modeling vs rendering and to favor faster CPU instead of cores. But do you know if this stands for simulation (fluid, nparticles, VFX in general) in Maya? I’ve read somewhere that for some software like Houdini it still helps to have more cores vs faster CPU for effects and simulations.
Could you help me on this?
Thanks in advance!


Thank you for the informations , i am using Nvidia GTX 1050Ti and i have an issue , when i open (substance painter) or any (Real Time Render) program , the laptop got freeze and then i have to restart the laptop , dose the Nvidia GTX 1060 work good with (substance painter) ?


Will you be adding the 2060 to this list?


how do i know if my motherboard’s m.2 doesnt share pcie lanes with my gpu?

Lars Christensen

I can’t see how you calculate your results, but I think you should update your performance chart – The performance pr dollar for a 1070Ti = 0,615, 1080Ti = 0,486, 1070 = 0,62 and 1080 = 0,52 as far as I can see??!
