    Best Graphics Performance Right Now - Hierarchy Chart by Tom's Hardware


    Best Graphics Performance Right Now - Hierarchy Chart by Tom's Hardware-r9-280x.jpg

    Tom's Hardware
    has a monthly review of the best buy for graphics cards at various price ranges. Best Graphics Cards For The Money which is updated monthly about in the middle of the month.

    At the end of the review is their Graphics Card Hierarchy Chart: Graphics Card Hierarchy Chart. We've reproduced part of it here.

    The tonymacx86 Buyers Guide for September 2014, has the recommended nVidia graphics cards which Apple is supporting in Mountain Lion and Mavericks. The AMD/ATI R9/8/7 200 series graphics cards are not currently supported by Apple's OS X.

    Note the HD3000 and HD4000 Intel Integrated Graphics are in the 3rd column. HD4400/4600/5000 have not been classified, yet.
