    AMD Radeon HD 7850

    AMD Radeon HD 7850

    Poor HD 7850. Things looked rather better for the little brother of the top mid-range card, the HD 7870 just a couple of months ago. It's sub-£200 price tag made it look more attractive than the £260 that the HD 7870 was retailing for at launch, and it had some serious overclocking performance too. But it was always going to face serious competition in this price range and with the massive price drop that Nvidia's GTX 570 has gone through recently - to the point where it is now actually cheaper than the HD 7850 - things don't look particularly rosy for this little card.

    Nvidia GeForce GTX 570

    Nvidia GeForce GTX 570

    The GeForce GTX 570 followed on from the GTX 580 much in the same way as the GTX 470 followed the inaugural Fermi, the GTX 480. The difference here is that the GTX 580 was a much higher specified graphics card than the GTX 480 was at the time, and because of the trickle down effect this new card actually has more in common with that first Fermi card than the GTX 470.

    AMD Radeon HD 7970

    AMD Radeon HD 7970

    AMD blinked first and opted to release its brand new graphics card architecture well before Nvidia. This is the fruits of its labour, the Southern Island Radeon HD 7970 and, for a short time, it was the fastest graphics card around. It was a brave move by AMD though, bringing out a radically different graphics design specification, compared with its previous vector processors, just after it brought us a brand new processor architecture. Especially given the depressing failure of those promising AMD FX CPUs.

    AMD Radeon HD 7950

    AMD Radeon HD 7950

    The HD 7950 is still based on exactly the same Graphics Core Next/Southern Islands architecture that is used in its only other AMD HD 7000 sibling, the HD 7970. This means it's a graphics card still nailing the very latest of technologies in its rather sizeable package. This also means it's a fully-fledged DirectX 11.1 graphics card (though that's not going to be around soon, or even that big of a deal), more of interest though is the production process, shrinking down from the 40nm of the Cayman GPU to 28nm.

    Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti

    Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti

    While the price drop of the GTX 570 has killed the competition from AMD's HD 7850, it's also not going to do great things for the GTX 560 Ti's prospects. At birth the GTX 560 Ti was a decent little £200 card, ably backing up the £100 more expensive GTX 570 with a slightly cut-down GPU and some respectable performance numbers. Now, though, that price difference is barely more than a tenner with the performance difference in turn seemingly massive by contrast.

    Nvidia GeForce GTX 680

    Nvidia GeForce GTX 680

    The GTX 680 is Nvidia's latest £400-odd, top-of-the-line card and is now the fastest gaming card in the world. That's it folks. Shut off the PSU, turn off the monitors and sit back with your pipe and slippers knowing that it was an easy job, done adequately. Nvidia has played the waiting game with AMD, letting its competition draw first and release its entire slew of HD 7000 graphics cards. That meant Nvidia could see clearly how the competition was performing and ensure its engineers finalized the specifications and set the clocks to ensure the requisite 10 per cent performance improvement to win.

    Nvidia GeForce GTX 670

    Nvidia GeForce GTX 670

    The Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 is a great little card. The size of the PCB is impressive and will make for some interesting small form factor cards in the future. It's almost GTX 680 performance for £100/$100 less, but at £330/$400 it still prices itself out of most pockets.

    Nvidia GeForce GTX 690

    Nvidia GeForce GTX 690

    The GTX 690 is a beautifully designed and wonderfully engineered graphics card. Truly a thing of tech pornography. That said the performance it has on offer isn't anything wondrous compared to the cheaper GTX 670 SLI alternative.

    AMD Radeon HD 7870

    AMD Radeon HD 7870

    The Pitcairn-powered HD 7870 and HD 7850 pretty much completed AMD's current Graphics Core Next Southern Island card lineup. All we're waiting on now is the high-end competitor for Nvidia's GTX 690, the HD 7990, codenamed New Zealand. But that ridiculous end of the graphics market is not what we're looking at with the AMD Radeon HD 7870. This here represents the start of its enthusiast range of cards; serious gaming starts here, according to AMD.

    AMD Radeon HD 6850

    AMD Radeon HD 6850

    At launch it was pricing itself almost out of the market. It was going toe-to-toe with the 1GB GTX 460 which - at the time - just about had it pipped in performance terms. It was also a little pricier than the GTX 460, which came in around the £160 mark. Time has been kind to the HD 6850 - the price, in particular, has dropped significantly, indeed AMD recently announced a further price drop bringing the graphics card down to less than £100, which for a specification like this is a serious bargain. AMD's constant driver updates too have meant that performance has increased over time too.
