This is the new enthusiast-level offering from team green. RTX 3080 is one of the best value-oriented graphics cards of this generation. It is priced at $699 in the USA but costs much more in Nepal and many other countries. This card costs a fraction of the price of RTX 2080 Ti and performs better than that. Nvidia is selling this as a 4K gaming card. Well, RTX 3080 is pretty good for 4K gaming, but it is amazing for 1440p at a high refresh rate. This is also very powerful for creative workloads like video editing, rendering, and streaming.
|Memory||10 GB GDDR6X|

This is the new value-oriented graphics card for the mainstream players. The RTX 3070 competes with the older RTX 2080 and puts itself as a 1440p gaming card. It is can play games at a 1920×1080 high frame rate with ease. This can also push 4K games in high settings. However many people are choosing this to play new titles on 1440p ultra-high presets. The RTX 3070 launch MSRP is $499 for Founder’s edition.
|Memory||8 GB GDDR6|
|Bus Width||256 Bit|
|Core Frequency||1500 MHz|
RTX 2080 Ti
RTX series uses Turing architecture. There are many models from Nvidia for the normal consumer market. There is a normal version and a Super version for 20 series cards. For 2080 Ti there is no Super edition. This $1200 beast is for demanding graphics editors and hardcore gamers. It is an expensive consumer-level product and not a workstation product. However, we can use this for some engineering applications as well. RTX series introduced RT cores, Tensor cores, DLSS, concurrent processing, and Ray Tracing.
|Memory||11 GB GDDR6|
|Bus Width||352 Bit|
|Core Frequency||1350 MHz|
RTX 2080 Super and RTX 2080
2080 is a top-end consumer product for enthusiasts and gamers. The Super version of 2080 came a bit later and brought performance uplifts to compete with AMD’s offerings. Both of these are fantastic options for 1440p high refresh rate gaming. These can also do 4K gaming and video editing. The Super edition comes at a very similar price and offers better results. So we also recommend purchasing the new model. But in the case of Nepal, get the one that fits your budget.

GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti
These are very famous Pascal architecture based cards. They are still very famous and the prices are also lower these days. The GTX 1080 Ti is a very high-end GPU, and it can do high refresh rate 1440p gaming and some 4K gaming as well. These also perform well in professional workloads such as Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects. Both are very good cards, but they are of different leagues. There are differences in memory size, bandwidth, Cuda cores, and obviously, performance.

RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2070
The Super version of cards are beefed up and improved versions. They come around the same price and also offer good benefits. As we are saying, the names might be similar, but differences are quite substantial. As far as possible, buy the Super version of Nvidia products in this Turing family. The RTX 2070 Super is very powerful, and it is a top-end product. This can push games with Ray Tracing to very good FPS.

GTX 1070 Ti and GTX 1070
These are also Pascal-based cards, and they are very famous for high refresh rate 1080p gaming. People also do good 1440p gaming in them. Many media houses use them for work too. The price to performance ratio is very good for these products. We take them as one of the best value products of the 10 series. The differences between the Ti and normal 1070 is in the numbers of Cuda Cores and clocks. The number of Cuda Cores has a big effect on speed and output.

RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2060
The normal Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060, 1660, and 1660 Ti lie in the entry to the mid-level segment. But the RTX 2060 and 2060 Super lie in mid to high range segment. This is because the RTX 2060 Super is about the same level of Geforce GTX 1070. The difference between RTX 2060 Super and normal 2060 is in every part. The super version has more memory, bandwidth, cores, and higher clock. This means much better performance in every task. The RTX 2060 cards are very popular in the mid range. Many people use these for their performance they provide for the price. In the international or mainly the US market, it is very good. However, in Nepal, it is quite costly.
|Specs||RTX 2060 Super||RTX 2060|
|Memory||8 GB GDDR6||6 GB GDDR6|
|Bus Width||256 Bit||192 Bit|
|Core Clock||1470 MHz||1365 MHz|

GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1660 Super
Many people take these as budget level cards. They are excellent in 1920x1080p gaming at 60 fps. They are also good for somewhat high refresh rate games. For the international price, the profile is pretty nice. However, due to the price, it is in mid-range for Nepali customers. The starting price is quite high. This is why they are here on this list. The 1660 Ti is a bit faster because it has a higher number of Cuda cores and large bandwidth.
|Specs||GTX 1660 Ti||GTX 1660 Super|
|Memory||6 GB GDR6||6 GB GDDR6|
|Bus Width||192 Bit||192 Bit|
|Core Clock||1500 MHz||1530 MHz|

Video Cards Overview and Analysis
We suggest everyone buy cards or hardware that provide optimum value for the money. Seriously lower end models don’t give good performance for the price tag. If we go up and add a bit more, we can get good hardware and impressive results. In the international market, GTX 1660 Ti is taken as the best graphics card for ultra 1080p gaming. This can pull any modern title at ultra and high settings with ease for 60 fps in 1920×1080. Previously GTX 1060 held this title, and now GTX 1650 Super holds it.
The GTX 1660 Ti, and 1070 Ti are for high frame rate gaming on high refresh rate monitors. They can also power up 1440p gaming, but RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 are better suited for that. We recommend at least 4 GB VRAM these days. However, the ideal is 6 GB for 1080p monitors. For better performance, 8 GB is the current standard.
The RTX 2070, and GTX 1080 are very well suited for high-resolution gaming, graphics designing, editing, and professional works. They are great for 4K video editing as well. But for smoother 4K editing, we recommend GTX 1080 Ti, RTX 2070 Super, RTX 2080, and RTX 3080. For 8K gaming, you should choose RTX 3090. These are the best products in the market and provide top-level performance. But they also at a very hefty price.

RTX vs GTX
Nvidia RTX 3090 is for the people who want the best of the best and have money for everything. The new RTX cards have new GDDR6X memory, Tensor cores, DLSS, and Ray tracing features, making them different from the GTX series. The performance is also better compared to 20, 10, and 16 series predecessors. They perform better during normal render while ray tracing is turned off.
First of all, we need to know that there are RTX and GTX. Furthermore, we have to also know that there are 10 series and 16 series as well. The 16 series cards come in normal and Super version. However, the Super has already replaced the normal version. The new 16 series products like GTX 1660 Super comes with GDDR6 so they are very fast.
By the way, still GTX series has a lot of potentials and they are great for gaming. Our pick would be a GTX 1660 Ti or RTX 3070 because they are very capable products. For the best value, our pick is RTX 3080. Anyone who needs to do workstation tasks such as CAD should consider getting Nvidia Quadro because they are specially made for such work demands. Do read our article on PC building to pair the best PC for yourself. We don’t have official Nvidia Tesla and Quadro supply in the market. Quadro is mostly purchased by placing an order.

Advice and Recommendations
Many people may be thinking about why we haven’t listed some other cards. It is because these types of hardware are excessively expensive in Nepal. They are priced at high end range, but the specifications and performance don’t fit with top models. As always, try to get the best hardware within your budget. If you can afford a medium budget, then GTX 1660 is a great choice. But the best value is the GTX 1660 Ti or RTX 2060 Super. In the USA, they are the best value, but due to the higher price difference, we have to reconsider that.
According to Ocean Computer, the demand for such high power hardware is very low. For people who are into high refresh rate monitors and 1080p high FPS gaming, RTX 2060 Super is a great option. People who need 1440p gaming and higher video editing power should get GTX 1080 or RTX 2070 Super. Finally, people who want 4K video editing and 4K gaming should purchase RTX 2080 Super and RTX 3080 cards. In case, if you want 8K gaming, go for RTX 3090.
If budget is a problem, then GTX 1650 Super and 1050 Ti are amazing options. These are our top recommendations for 1080p gaming starters. Graphics card plays the most crucial role in gaming and graphics editing so get the best one in your budget. Above all, always pair your card with a good processor, power supply, and sufficient RAM.
