ASrock making AMD cards is a direct result of the now dead GeForce Partner Program "GPP" which required Nvidia cards hold exclusive rights to a product line (Think ROG or Gaming branded variants) in trade for advanced details and PCB access. But due to the vague wording, and to ensure no issues with the details, ASUS/ASRock (Same mother company) split AMD cards to the ASRock brand, keeping ASUS/ROG to Nvidia.

Pretty sure I missed a detail or 2 or have something to correct there but that's the general concept of ASRock starting to sell GPUs to my knowledge.

GeForce is the naming convention for consumer level cards, while Quadro is for professional use. But I have to correct you on the GTX moniker. GTX is the Gaming grade cards, where GT is the entry level barebones level cards. You can get a GT1030 which is one of their newest basic cards not really designed for gaming or you can get an old GTX 285 which at the time was one of the best GTX cards in 2009. They perform about the same now.

With Nvidia and AMD, the first number is the generation. GTX10XX is the current generation (11XX or 20XX is said to be next but they haven't confirmed which it will be named) and AMD is on their 5XX of their gaming cards. The next 2 numbers is basically where on the chart for the generation it sits and Nvidia adds a Ti to the end to mean it sits above the rest of that tier. Right now, the 1080Ti is the top gaming card but there is also the Titan series for enthusiasts but they cost an unreasonable amount unless you have money to burn and a reason to own one. But AMD also has the Vega line for their top tier (though they aren't competitive to the titans, closer to the 1080).

Confused enough yet? Here's a good resource to help figure out what GPU sits where on the food chain: https://www.tomshardware.com/revi...,4388.html

Wow I didn't even know ASRock makes GPUs. I'm guessing these are overstocks from Taiwan when Newegg closed its branch (newegg.com.tw) last week.

There was an ASRock GPU/MB bundle a couple weeks back, think that was the first I've seen of them. GPU prices are a falling, and there are surpluses of chips out there. I am waiting for a top tier brand/mfr around this price.

Which brands do you consider to be the best? I'm also interested in upgrading but have no idea how to rank these besides knowing power color is one to avoid for cooling deficiencies...

Most brands will have high end and lower end cards, so I think brand + 'line' is the kind of information you'd want.

As far as I know, currently the best ones are considered to be: ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG); MSI Gaming/Titanium; Gigabyte AORUS. Maybe EVGA SC2?

They typically have better cooling, meaning less downclocking because of TurboBoost 3.0, and higher power limits meaning theoretically(!) better overclocking, though your luck with the silicon lottery will be the biggest factor in that.

With the exception of blower-style cards, the actual difference in performance is on the order of a few %. However, the better cards will run significantly quieter.

Seems the gtx 1060s rarely go on sale. Manufacturers must be hoarding them to hold up the price.

Nope, for RX580, his list is wrong. Sapphire, XFX make best RX580's for using quality material and better cooling solution. Rest is almost similar like founder edition on GTX side, maybe a little bit better. I saw mixed reviews on PowerColor.

For GeForce, I will rank EVGA, ASUS first, GA and MSI are a hit or miss with some models are pretty good, Zotac is budget choice, other brands are of similar quality.
