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 now using Windows 11 Pro for testing. It is updated with the latest Windows Updates. Core Isolation/Memory Integrity VBS is DISABLED, Hardware Accelerated GPU Scheduling is ENABLED, Game Mode is ENABLED and the Power Plan is on “Ultimate Performance.”
