Difference Between GTX and RTX Graphics cards.


GTX and RTX is not a simple technology to explain in one or two lines. However, the fundamental difference between GTX and RTX is that is the latter has been specially designed to support ray-tracing techniques. This is itself is a complicated concept but, in essence, it means plotting the precise paths of light sources as they bounce around a virtual environment.

So, in a game world that features a character with a glass-visored helmet, for example, light from the sun might first hit the visor, and then bounce off a building window and then to and off the watch face on another  character’s wrist and so on. Clearly, this involves extraordinarily complex mathematics and billions of calculations each and every second.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX platform offers real-time ray tracing and AI for an entirely new gaming experience. RTX graphics card offers stunningly accurate lighting like shadows, reflections, refractions, and global illumination. With more realistic scenes, gaming is more intense and exhilarating than ever before.

RTX graphics card can cast up to 10 Giga rays per second, allowing real-time, movie-like lighting in games and it is possible because RTX graphics cards deliver up to 6x faster ray-tracing performance.  

The older graphics processor, including NVIDIA’s own GTX series, might be able to manage ray-traced graphics effects but such chips are not specifically designed for these next-generation visuals.  

The two big company who manufacture graphics cards is NVIDIA and AMD, here is the list of their graphics card base on increasing order of performance. 

Nvida Graphics card AMD Graphics card
GTX 1050 AMD RX 550
GTX 1050Ti AMD Radeon RX 560
GTX 1060 AMD Radeon RX 570
GTX 1650 AMD Radeon RX 580
GTX 1660 AMD Radeon RX 590
GTX 1660Ti AMD Radeon RX Vega 56
GTX 1070 AMD Radeon RX Vega 64
GTX 1070Ti AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid cooled
GTX 1080 AMD Radeon VII
GTX 1080Ti AMD Radeon RX 5700
RTX 2060 AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary
RTX 2070
RTX 2080
RTX 2080Ti
GTX 1660Ti
GTX 1660Ti

In a few year ray-traced effects in games will become normal and GTX will be eliminated for RTX.
