Nvidia compares RTX 3050 and GTX 1050 on product page diagram

GPUs are a hot topic because they are hard to come by. With chip shortages and crypto mining gobbling up, PC gamers’ demand for quality GPUs has never been higher. So it’s puzzling that companies are blatantly using misleading comparisons when marketing these cards.

on twitter, Andreas Schilling edit Hardware Luxx, points to some AMD comparison graphs that pit the new entry-level AMD Radeon Pro W6400 GPU against the Radeon Pro WX 3200 released in 2019. It’s an odd choice, since these comparisons don’t even make the new card look good. Two of the three benchmarks shown are simply comparable, which is not what most people want to hear when looking for an upgrade.
