It’s really easy to get excited with the higher-end video cards and get hung up in trying to keep up with others to have the flashiest or fastest PCs. But the reality is even in the latest Steam hardware survey that 58% of stem users are running a resolution of 1080p and another 8% of users running below that. With that in mind, there are a LOT of people who don’t need the latest and greatest but may still need an upgrade to keep up with current games at 1080p. Well, there are a few cards targeted at that market, the Radeon RX 6500 XT and Nvidia RTX 3050. Nvidia even leaned into this with a new 6GB model earlier this year. Well, today I’m going to check out both the Radeon RX 6500 XT 8GB and also compare it with the RTX 3050 6GB which is in the same budget price range, and see how they perform. Which would be a good pickup when doing a budget build, let’s find out.
