Welcome to the 3D graphics cards specifications section of - covering most of the desktop models released to the US and European markets since 1995.

The graphics cards are organised by several metrics: Direct3D (DirectX) level supported - e.g. DX6, DX7, DX8, etc; Vendor - e.g. 3dfx, ATI, Intel, NVIDIA, etc; Generation - e.g. Radeon 9700 series, Radeon 9800 series, Radeon X800 series, etc; Model - e.g. GeForce 6200, GeForce 6600, etc.

In modern gaming, one of the most important aspects of a graphics card is what DirectX level it supports, which is why the charts are primarily sorted by this factor: use the links at the top of the page to jump to the appropriate level. If you don't know what DirectX level a model supports, then use the following links to find a vendor's particular model range.
