The new AMD Graphics Cards are in market now and it is probably a good time to make a choice between the green team and Red’s. If you are looking to upgrade your old gaming Rig or looking forward to buy a new gaming PC which is the better choice in the Rs. 10,000($130) segment. The newly launched AMD R7 360 or the Nvidia power house GTX 750 Ti.
The AMD R7 360 was launched in June 2015 along with the other R9 and R7 300 series cards. The R9 300 series was a re-brand of the existing AMD R9 200 series, speaking about the architectural or technological changes that the R9 300 series bring over the AMD R9 200 series is not much to write home.
Though the new graphics cards are 100% complaint with the Microsoft DirectX 12, you may see a boost of performance when Microsoft releases the new DirectX on 29, July 2015 along with the upgrade to Windows 10.
The benefit for the DirectX 12 will be for everyone and as per a statement released by Microsoft the graphics cards will get a boost upto 20% or more, over the DX11. The Nvidia GTX 750 Ti is compatible with the DX 12 as well. It is a long debate who will gain more from the DX 12 implementation AMD or Nvidia or both equally only time will tell.
The AMD R7 360 is priced between rs. 10,500 to Rs. 12,000 in the market and the price for the Nvidia GTX 750 Ti is also in the similar range.
