What are the latest Graphics Cards?

Due to some very odd naming and numbering conventions, it’s hard to know what the best graphics cards (GPU)  are that money can buy and if your card is compatible with the latest game when checking system requirements.

The object of this page is to show which cards are newer than others to help gauge where your graphics card sits and what you should be upgrading to. If you are looking to upgrade our advice is to always buy the best you can afford. Never settle for a cheaper card if you can avoid it.

In general, newer cards are better than previously released cards but if you’re ever in any doubt check AMD or Nvdia‘s site.
