There are a lot of posts out there and “ultimate guides” giving full spec breakdowns on new and old graphic cards, but a lot of people are just looking for a quick side by side comparison of the “new vs old” graphics cards. Newegg lets you do this, but only 5 at a time. Wikipedia kind of does this, but you can’t compare different series.
In this post I’m only going to compare CUDA cores, memory, MSRP, mem type, base clock speed, and power. I realize there is a whole wealth of other specifications that really matter when making a purchase, but these are always the first thing I look at when weighing a new graphics card.

The 20 series uses “Ray Tracing” which was largely debated when it was first released it is geared towards gaming graphics.
The 16 series uses the Turing architecture. They marketed the 16 series towards live streamers.
Is there anything that I’m missing that absolutely needs to be added? Memory Clock? Ports? If so, let me know! Thanks for checking this out!
