Top Graphics Card Manufacturers & Brands for Nvidia & AMD GPUs

Nvidia and AMD are the two topmost manufacturers of graphics card processors or GPUs in the world. Both Nvidia and AMD make gaming as well as workstation or professional GPUs (Graphics Processing Unit). Graphics Cards from Nvidia and AMD are made by their licensed & official Partners who are authorized to make graphics cards for them. These manufacturers get the GPUs and PCB design layout from Nvidia and AMD for making Graphics Cards. Some of them may design their own customized PCB layout and circuit to cut down the cost or increase performance.

A graphics card consists of many other major components besides GPU. It has VRAM or Video Memory, VRM (Voltage Regulator Module), Capacitors, Resistors, and a Cooling Unit that can be either passive or active. All these components are put together on a PCB by these graphics card manufacturers and after that, they are ready to be sold in the market.


Graphics Cards having the same GPU from different manufacturers or brands may not have the same performance and features. This is because different manufacturers may have their own board layout, memory capacity, type & speed, components quality, and cooler. Most of the manufacturers overclock their graphics cards for better performance, some of them bundle free games and some provide more warranty. All these things ultimately affect the performance and efficiency of graphics cards having the same GPU. This is why graphics cards having the same GPU from different brands have different pricing. Some are cheaper and some are a bit more expensive. Graphics cards from higher reputed brands are usually costlier than the other brands. Here in this post, I am going to provide you with a list of top graphics card manufacturers & brands and tell you about their graphics cards.
