Im curious....

i got 2 gpu's laying here and im not sure which one would be best for doom mods
mainly for brutal doom,project brutality etc...
the cards are ATI Radeon RX 550 2gb and NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 1gb
i keep hearing nvidia is much better for open gl but the radeon is a much much faster and also newer card
then the geforce...
My full specs are since you probably will ask its a AMD Ryzen 1500x,8gb ddr4,Kingston ssd,and one of the GPU's
nothing special...
thing is that makes me want to pick the ati is because the ati has 1,300gflops and the nvidia has 300gflops lol so yeah much faster

but will it be faster in gzdoom/zandronum too???

The RX 550 is a much better pick, much better performance than the 710, a couple years newer, and also an extra gig of VRAM. OpenGL performance on AMD is good in my experience (from both my HD 6670 and RX 580).

Code: Select all
