Specification Comparison: 19 GPUs in a Table

We originally wanted to debut this table in the first article but time constraints kept that from happening so today we bring you a handy table that contains a lot of useful information. 

The following table compares the basic specifications of all of the GPUs in this roundup including the GPU’s introduction date (the date we were allowed to publish benchmarks) and the introduction price.  It’s always interesting to see how performance specs as well as prices change over time.
