Radeon R7 265 vs GeForce GTX 750 Ti

A Comparison of Nvidia and AMD GPUs: Bisman Kaur, MPM 1D8

GPUs are graphic processing units. They can be very expensive, which is why it is important to know what you're buying. In terms of companies, it usually comes down to AMD and Nvidia. This flyer is going to compare the Radeon R7 265X and GeForce GTX 750 Ti (two mid-range graphic cards) to show which has a better value.

DEFINING THE VARIABLES

Value ($): y

Year: x

This is because y is the dependent variable, and the value of the GPU is dependent on x (how many years you've owned it).

AMD RADEON R7 265X: y = -12x + 150

The price of an AMD Radeon R7 265X is $150, and the value drops $12 every year.

PROOF

y = -12x + 150

102 = -12(4) + 150

102 = -48 + 150

102 = 102

LS = RS

NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 750TI: y = -7x + 150

The price of a Nvidia GeForce GTX 750Ti is $150, and the value drops $7 every year.

PROOF

y = -7x + 150

122 = -7(4) + 150

122 = -28 + 150

122 = 122

LS = RS

THE GRAPH

POINT OF INTERSECTION

The coordinates of the POI are (0, 150). The point of intersection is important because it is the only point when both GPUs have the same value. After that, the value of both GPUs begins to decrease, and the lines do not meet again. The Nvidia decreases slower than the AMD, showing which GPU is a better long-term buy. Data before the POI is not valid, because the point of intersection is also the y-intercept, and you cannot have negative years.
-12x + 150 = -7x + 150

-12x + 7x = 150 + 150

-5x = 300

x = 300/-5

x = -60

SUMMARY

In conclusion, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750Ti is a better buy than the AMD Radeon R7 265X because it has a higher value for a longer amount of time. The higher value shows that it will last longer as well, which means that you won't need to replace your graphics card for a long time with a 750Ti!
