Please read our GPU Test Bench and Benchmarking Refresher for an explanation on our test system, procedures and goals. Note that we have upgraded our CPU to a Ryzen 7 5800X in the system. More information on our GPU testing can be found here. Check out our KIT page where you can see all the components in our test system configuration for reviewing video cards.
We are using the motherboard’s current default BIOS settings. We have enabled PCI-Express Resizable BAR in the motherboard BIOS. This means we are utilizing Resizable BAR on NVIDIA GPUs and AMD Smart Access Memory on AMD GPUs in all of our testing. We have enabled DOCP in the BIOS for the memory.
We are using the latest drivers at the time of testing. For the AMD video cards, we are using AMD supplied press drivers Adrenalin 21.30.17.06 which work with the Radeon RX 6600 for launch.
