Which brand of graphics cards has the highest reliability

The information that we’re going to present you under has been extracted from a report of Mindfactory, a German distributor so enormous that it’s taken as a benchmark to calculate the market shares of AMD, NVIDIA and Intel for each processors and graphics cards in Europe. They are subsequently not information that may be extrapolated worldwide, however they do serve to get a reasonably correct concept of ​​the reliability of producers’ graphics cards.

The information, by the manner, is predicated on the RMA price managed from the graphics cards bought, that’s, from customers who’ve suffered an issue with their graphics card and have processed their guarantee.

Graphics card reliability: AMD vs NVIDIA

Let’s begin by doing a worldwide comparability regardless of the assembler, and simply trying to see if the graphics card has an AMD or NVIDIA GPU. In this comparability, the following graphics card fashions have been taken into consideration:

  • AMD: Radeon RX 5700 XT, RX 5700, RX 5600 XT and RX 5500 XT.
  • NVIDIA: GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2080, RTX 2070 SUPER, RTX 2070, RTX 2060 SUPER, RTX 2060 and GTX 1660 Ti.


This is the end result of the AMD and NVIDIA RMA price relying on the mannequin:

Graph mannequin Sales Returns RMA share
AMD RX 5700 XT 32480 1139 3.51%
AMD RX 5700 12380 400 3.24%
AMD RX 5600 XT 2380 fifty 2.09%
AMD RX 5500 XT 3210 36 1.13%
NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti 9530 492 5.17%
NVIDIA RTX 2080 SUPER 9750 129 1.33%
NVIDIA RTX 2080 10430 367 3.52%
NVIDIA RTX 2070 SUPER 36570 458 1.25%
NVIDIA RTX 2070 21700 998 4.60%
NVIDIA RTX 2060 SUPER 13900 265 1.91%
NVIDIA RTX 2060 10710 189 1.77%
NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti 9620 116 1.21%

With these information, now we have that globally AMD graphics cards have a price of RMA of 3.22% on common, whereas NVIDIA graphics have a guaranty administration share of 2.47% common. To spotlight that return price of greater than 5% in the RTX 2080 Ti, which on common are the graphics cards that fail the most.

With these information, we will say that NVIDIA graphics cards are on common extra dependable than AMD’s, and in addition the information is extra dependable since 122,210 graphics cards from NVIDIA by 50,440 from AMD have been taken into consideration on this comparability.

Which graphics card assembler is the most dependable?

Given the comparability between AMD and NVIDIA by graphics card mannequin, it’s time to see which of the assemblers is the one that gives the biggest reliability of their graphics cards, following precisely the similar standards as in the earlier part. For this comparability, the following assemblers have been taken into consideration:

  • AMD graphics: AMD (BBA), ASRock, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, Sapphire and XFX.
  • NVIDIA Graphics: Gainward, Gigabyte, INNO3D, KFA2, MSI, Palit, PNY, and Zotac.

As you could have already observed, for some unknown purpose they haven’t included ASUS In this comparability, a producer that assembles graphics from each NVIDIA and AMD.

This is the end result of the RMA price by graphics card producer:

Maker Sales Returns RMA share
AMD 3210 81 2.54%
ASRock 2250 48 2.15%
Gigabyte (AMD) 5990 176 2.94%
MSI (AMD) 8290 161 1.95%
PowerColor 12680 684 5.40%
Sapphire 13360 321 2.41%
XFX 4660 153 3.29%
Gainward 6020 196 3.27%
Gigabyte (NVIDIA) 27480 689 2.51%
INNO3D 120 3 3.00%
KFA2 26560 477 1.80%
MSI (NVIDIA) 50860 1312 2.58%
Palit 7150 232 3.25%
PNY 460 8 1.72%
Zotac 3560 97 2.73%

Here we discover (once more denoting ASUS lacking) that the most dependable producer is KFA2, and additionally it is the third producer that sells the most NVIDIA graphics. In this case, the worst producer seems to be PowerColor, with a price of return of greater than 5%, adopted by XFX, Gainward, and Palit.

If you wish to see the full Mindfactory report, which is damaged down even by particular mannequin of every producer, you have got the hyperlink to the supply slightly below these strains.
