Best Graphics Hardware
So as we’re sure you can guess, this is often a bit of a two-horse race between the two kings of the hill, AMD and Nvidia. Never before has this rivalry been more apparent than this year though, with the emergence of the Red Rebellion and the Radeon Revolution, challenging the well-cemented bourgeois that is Nvidia with affordable high performing hardware, something not soon to be forgotten. So to break down this hell of a year, we’ve trawled through all the cards that this year gave us, and trust us there's been some crackers, so we can present to you which cards we thought really shone this year, whether back breaking performance or amazing bang for your buck, they’re all here.
Radeon RX Vega 64
In the words of Jim Ross, by god, we had to wait a long time for Vega, but sure enough, AMD duly delivered. The Radeon RX Vega 64 wasn’t, and isn’t, the GeForce beater some were perhaps hoping for, but instead trade blows with the GeForce GTX 1080, Despite this, AMD has crammed plenty of new tech into the Radeon RX Vega 64 that has yet to be exploited, making it an excellent future-proofed GPU.

Radeon RX Vega 56
Touted as a GTX 1070 killer, the Radeon RX Vega 56 was the unsung hero of AMD’s RX Vega launch in August. It prompted Nvidia to scramble the jets and unleash the 1070 Ti, such is the Radeon RX Vega’s fantastic 1440p gaming performance and competitive pricing.
