Rise of the Tomb Raider
Whereas Hitman adores Radeon GPUs, Rise of the Tomb Raider performs much better on GeForce cards. We only test the game’s DirectX 11 mode. DX12 was bolted on after the fact and acts a little wonky.
EVGA’s 3GB GTX 1060 smokes the Radeon cards here, as is to be expected. The Aorus RX 570 narrows the gap mightily at 1440p resolution, however—as does the RX 470, as it once again delivers performance the slimmest of hairs behind its successor. The 3GB capacity of Nvidia’s $200 graphics card just isn’t ideal for high-resolution gaming.

Gigabyte Aorus Radeon RX 570
The Gigabyte Aorus is a gorgeous, well-performing graphics card. The Radeon RX 570 is the best sub-$200 gaming option around—but it isn't much of a step up over the RX 470.
- 4GB of RAM
- Superb 1080p gaming performance
- Quiet, cool, and overclocked.
- $10 cheaper than RX 470
- Refresh of existing RX 470
- Lags behind Nvidia GPUs in power efficiency.
