Talk to anyone about building a new PC, and the question of longevity is going to pop up sooner rather than later.
Note: While this article makes frequent reference to Nvidia GPUs, this is not to imply Nvidia is responsible for the failure of future-proofing as a strategy.
GPUs have advanced more rapidly than CPUs over the past decade, with a much higher number of introduced features for improving graphics fidelity or game performance.
The only reason we can’t say the same of AMD is because everyone who bought an HD 2000 series GPU ended up disappointed.
GPU performance often nearly doubled every year, which made buying a GPU in 2003 for a game that wouldn’t ship until 2004 a really stupid move.
