Best & Worst GPUs of 2023 for Gaming: $100 to $2000 Video Cards

Sponsor: Arctic Liquid Freezer II ARGB on Amazon & P12 MAX fans on Amazon:
We’re recapping the best & worst GPUs in 2023, which weirdly includes many GPUs from 2019 and 2020 — but they’re still around and price drops have made them relevant. This graphics card round-up is focused on a gaming perspective, which means we’re considering primarily the rasterization and ray tracing performance, with some discussion about drivers as it pertains to Intel’s Arc GPUs. The topics include video cards in the $100 to $200 price range, $200 to $300, $300 to $400, $400 to $750, and then $750 and up, where the RTX 4090 has sadly received price increases lately.

The most relevant GPUs to discussion are the Intel Arc A750, AMD’s RX 6650 XT, RX 6700 XT & 6750 XT, and the RX 7900 XT (though we discuss some others, like the 6800 series), while NVIDIA’s currently are the RTX 4090 and RTX 4070, with some discussion of the RTX 4070 Ti (although hesitation everywhere between the 4060 Ti and 4090 due to impending refreshes that may affect value soon).
