We are gonna talk about the best Aftermarket GPU vendors in the market, we are gonna consider their quality, their customer care, performance, background, and obviously we are gonna take a quick look at their latest creations, and we will compare it to their old ones.
We are gonna talk about

  • XFX
  • EVGA
  • MSI
  • ASUS
  • Zotac
  • SAPPHIRE
  • GIGABYTE

 

  • XFX
    Originally founded in 2002, XFX is still one of the oldest AMD partners. XFX is a very reputed company, their power supplies are always amazing, but considering their GPU Quality, its bit bad. From a personal experience, XFX R9 290 was really bad, it had no quality, the base on the card was very cheap, yet the Graphics card was actually beautiful. XFX has been working on their quality, and we can see that in progress since the latest RX 480 had the fan swap design, which was actually very cool. The Card was still none the less having bad quality, but it had a fan-swap design, which was something new. On a serious note, you should know that XFX is only affiliated with AMD, so this means that they don’t make any Nvidia Graphics Card. We can see improvement from XFX, however this doesn’t mean, that they are too good comparing others, so keep reading the article, until we get the conclusion with obvious reasons.

 

  • EVGA
    Founded in 1999, EVGA has been a top-class manufacturer of motherboards and graphic cards. EVGA has worldwide awesome custom care making it a reputed brand. EVGA has been making Nvidia Graphic cards lately because they left their partnership with AMD. EVGA has some top notch graphic cards, which have been world record holders.The EVGA 1080 Ti Kingpin is the recent top notch graphics card, which is lately keeping its promise by great performance. The EVGA SC GTX 970 was also an awesome card, so looking at the background EVGA is all set. The EVGA GTX 1080 SC and FTW version were also amazing because their quality and performance were top class. EVGA over all has very positive results from their users, apart from this EVGA has a lot of returning buyers.

 

  • MSI
    Also known as Micro-Star International, MSI is loved by many, one of the main reasons is that MSI theme logo is very beautiful. MSI is one of few companies, that are having partnership with Intel + AMD + Nvidia, and they are doing it very well. Their motherboards along with Graphic Cards are very amazing, one o the negative points of MSI is that they clearly have a bad custom care. Quality is just normal, the bios is just fine, although their customer care is really bad. The latest GTX 1080 Ti and Ryzen motherboards from MSI were epic, but as we look into their past, they are clearly improving everything they can. The old MSI Twin Frozr design has gotten better, their MSI Lightning edition cards are amazing, what makes it more interesting is that MSI has started to work on their Liquid Cooled GPU, the MSI Seahawk is a clear example.

 

  • ASUS
    One of the leading top companies, ASUS has really produced some of the amazing motherboards and Graphics Card. ASUS has some amazing Graphic Cards designs out there, like Strix, Matrix Edition, Dual fan edition. But what I’ve seen so far is that ASUS custom care is very bad, they are having a very bad reputation, because they are known to send wrong, defected, broken items. Reviews on ASUS are really bad, but what we can say that ASUS is really good Graphics Card manufacturer, the Dual fan edition, which is recently introduced has normal quality, but the Strix edition has amazing quality. The Dual fan is a bit cheaper than Strix, so that may be a reason, why it has poor quality. The Matrix Poseidon edition cards are amazing though. You can read ASUS reviews here

 

  • ZOTAC
    Starting in 2006, ZOTAC has all the way taken the Nvidia Graphic Cards market, they are only in partnership with Nvidia, How ever Zotac still produces some mini PC”s. Zotac Graphic cards have amazing quality, their customer care is just fine. Zotac only manufacturers Nvidia Graphic Cards, so that does make sense, how quality over quantity ratio works. Keep reading the article to find the actual winner!

 

  • SAPPHIRE
    Starting in 2001, SAPPHIRE has taken the lead in the AMD Graphic Cards market, SAPPHIRE mainly is owned by the same company, that ZOTAC Is owned by. They are only AMD Exclusive Graphic Cards designer. SAPPHIRE has overall very positive custom care, their graphic cards are amazing. The last generation R9 290/390/Fury were amazing from SAPPHIRE side, the Tri-x design and vapor-x were very amazing. The Feedback on those cards was very positive. SAPPHIRE has some top-notch graphic cards in the market, the recently introduced RX 480 was also good, but it had some negative reviews, although it was just normal like others. XFX really took the market when it came to RX 480.

  • GIGABYTE
    Originally started in 1986, the company has a huge platform, comparing other companies like EVGA, XFX, Zotac. The Company has achieved 78.9 million profit in 2013 making it a very rich company. GIGABYTE has been making Nvidia as well AMD Graphic Cards lately, how ever when we look at their background cards, they were really bad. The Triple Fan G1 gaming R9 280x/290/GTX 960 were bad. The R9 390 with a dual fan had very bad quality. But what’s surprising is that Gigabyte is working on it, recently introduced the Aorus edition cards were amazing, the water cooled card was amazing. Gigabyte did carry their G1 Gaming cards though but the newly introduced Aorus edition cards have taken their business to next level. Gigabyte has good customer care, and are very reputed in some countries.
