Battlefield 1 DX12 Benchmarks – Three Resolutions Tested
     Mon, Oct 31 2016 | 9:03A | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Battlefield 1 was without a doubt one of the most anticipated games of 2016 and it appears that EA and DICE have delivered a DirectX 12 winner. The World War I-themed game is a team-based first-person shooter that is fun to play if you have the right hardware in your gaming PC. The problem for some is that Battlefield 1 has some pretty tough minimum and recommended system specifications published for both AMD and Intel/NVIDIA systems. Read on to see what video cards run Battlefield 1 smoothly.

Lian Li Pitstop PC-T60A Open Air Test Bench Review

Posted by: STAFF
We’ve got a few semi-dedicated test systems in the office and a dedicated test bench, the MicroCool Banchetto 101 chassis. So, we swap components a lot if we want to use the Banchetto 101 chassis for any sort of sustained testing, like motherboard reviews.

Gears of War 4 Review And Benchmark Performance
     Wed, Oct 12 2016 | 2:31P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday, Gear of War 4 landed with boots on the ground for Microsoft Windows and the Xbox One console. This fifth entry in the series marks the first time a Gears title has launched simultaneously on both the PC and Xbox. It's also breaking new ground with cross-play functionality between the two platforms and is part of the Microsoft Xbox Play Anywhere program. Also, Gears of War 4 is a great looking game that makes impressive use of Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4 and the rich visual effects and rendering the powerful game engine offers. Gloriously, those playing on the PC have over 30 graphics settings (#PCMasterRace)...

3DMark Time Spy Benchmark – DX12 Async Compute
     Fri, Jul 22 2016 | 4:00P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
3DMark Time Spy came out yesterday and it is the latest and greatest DirectX 12 benchmark test for gaming PCs running Windows 10. This DirectX 12 Feature Level 11_0 benchmark utilizes a pure DirectX 12 game engine that supports features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading! We ran 3DMark Time Spy on our tried and true video card test system on more than a half dozen video cards and got some pretty interesting results!

3DMark's implementation of asynchronous compute
     Fri, Jul 22 2016 | 9:02A | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For today's GPUs? We'll need to keep watching and see how software evolves. Bulldozer was a clever architecture, too. Software didn't evolve in the way that AMD expected, making the redundancies they eliminated not as redundant as they expected. Unlike Bulldozer, asynchronous compute is being adopted, both on the PC and on the consoles. Again, we'll need to see statements from AMD, NVIDIA, and Futuremark before we can predict how current hardware will perform in future software, though."

Radeon RX 480 Compatibility Mode Benchmarks in Crimson 16.7.1
     Fri, Jul 08 2016 | 2:49P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overnight we took a closer look at the new Crimson 16.7.1 video card driver that AMD released as it contains a number of fixes and improvements for the Radeon RX 480 graphics card. These drives improve the Radeon RX 480 video cards power distribution by lowering the current drawn from the PCIe bus and increasing the power drawn by the 6-pin PCIe connector to the systems power supply. There is also a new UI toggle under the Global Settings in the Radeon Software app that allows you to reduce the total power of the card, but it comes off by default. We ran some benchmarks to see how the fixes impacted performance!

Overwatch Benchmarked
     Tue, Jun 21 2016 | 9:02A | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overwatch is impressive looking yet runs well on a wide range of hardware. It scales down to work on low-end hardware but can also be cranked up to take advantage of high-end gear, especially at the 4K resolution. Coming from an impressive open beta that attracted 9.7 million players, Overwatch is poised to be hugely popular among PC gamers. Only one question remains: can your hardware handle it?

Posted by: STAFF
Have you ever wanted to geek-out a little and know how much power your smartphone and tablet are using through the USB interface?

Rise Of The Tomb Raider PC Game Benchmarks
     Sat, Feb 06 2016 | 4:03P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lara Croft is back on the PC thanks to the highly anticipated release of Rise of the Tomb Raider. NVIDIA, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics teamed up for some internal testing and found that to get 60 FPS at 1920 x 1080 you'll need a GeForce GTX 970 with the high-detail graphics preset. That feels pretty extreme, so we wanted to take a look ourselves! Read on to see what our own benchmarking tells us on six different AMD Radeon R9 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 900 series video cards!
