Do you recall my column from earlier this year – Startup makes it easier to find and compare CPUs – when I talked about a new company called CPUBoss that provides an easy way to look up and compare the processors that power personal computers, servers, and mobile devices?
Well, CPUBoss has been so successful that they've launched a new capability called GPUBoss, which make it easier to compare the best desktop graphics cards used in gaming or graphics-intensive computing.
GPUBoss aggregates thousands of data points from across the web to centralize GPU specs, benchmarks, and reviews in one page, eliminating the need to hunt for information. “We want GPUBoss to be a more user-friendly way to find and compare the best GPUs” said Chris Reid, co-founder of GPUBoss. “Whether you’re building a computer and are trying to decide which Nvidia or AMD graphics card performs the best for gaming, or you are a tech enthusiast who wants to read up on the latest gpus, we can help.”
Some of the features that make GPUBoss unique are the ability to:
- Show head to head comparisons between GPUs with the pros and cons of each
- Summarize GPU features and benchmark data in an easy to read format
- Search for the best GPUs by 40+ criteria (e.g. game performance or best value)
- Aggregate key snippets of GPU reviews from across the web in one place
Through a combination of rich data and an attractive and user-friendly graphical interface, GPUBoss saves people time when reading up on the best performing GPUs, allowing them to find a graphics card that meets their needs when building a PC. About GPUBoss
is a Waterloo, Ontario based startup that makes it easier to find and compare the best graphics cards, no matter what anyone’s specific criteria is.
GPUBoss follows in the footsteps of CPUBoss.com, which launched in January 2013 to help compare computer processors, and was widely received as a useful research tool. GPUBoss catalogues thousands of products, parsing available data and perspectives to understand what the web knows about a product. The site then takes that intelligence and personalizes it for every single user so they can find a GPU that is right for them.
