Updated benchmarking, an improved hardware platform, twenty AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards – that’s what you will find in the article below. I haven’t been doing broader recaps for a long time, so I’ve decided to catch up on revenge, while I prepare to ramp up activity in your favorite section. This list is kind of a new opening. With the result base rebuilt, I made it literally at the last moment, after all, more premieres are on the horizon, while I still have some interesting products in my freezer, which I didn’t have time to check before. But let’s start with the basics…

Before I sit down for the final results for the graphics cards, I thoroughly optimize my test rig, which is powered by an always-on Intel Core i9-13900K overclocked to 5600/4600MHz (P-Core/E-Core). However, I replaced the motherboard with a high-performance ASUS ROG Maxiumus Z790 APEX, which allows you to keep the processor running at lower voltages and at the same time install higher DDR5 memory. Overclocking the 32GB G.Skill Trident Z5 RGB 7200 MHz CL 34-45-45-115 cluster to 7600 MHz CL 36-46-46-98, as well as calibrating other request delays, among others tRFC / tWR /tRTP/tFAW/tCKE/tWL. To sum up, a really powerful test rig was created, capable of feeding NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 even with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. As a data storage, I chose Lexar NM800 PRO 2 TB, cooled by a heatsink attached to the motherboard, and everything is driven by SeaSonic Prime Titanium 1000 W.

The primary change from the previous benchmarking procedure is the permanent inclusion of a Resizable BAR, which is the equivalent of an AMD SAM (Smart Access Memory), which slightly changes the balance of results between AMD and NVIDIA cards. Sometimes GeForce accelerates strongly, but mostly Radeons win, although in the end everything depends on the specific address and / or drivers. It should also be remembered that sometimes RBAR can negatively affect results. Additionally, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 graphics cards released prior to the RTX 3060 model required a BIOS update to take advantage of this solution effectively. Unfortunately, the GeForce RTX 2000 family has not received such (official) support from NVIDIA, which is why it automatically loses its position. However, in most cases, the changes made should allow you to get the most out of all graphics cards.

In addition to optimizing the platform to eliminate bottlenecks on the processor and memory side, as well as enabling the resizing bar function, I added new items to the testing procedure. It featured Hogwarts Legacy, The Callisto Protocol, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Next Gen, which were quite challenging for the graphics systems. The test site has changed in Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, while Red Dead Redemption 2 now uses DirectX 12 instead of the Vulkan API. And in turn, I said goodbye to DOOM Eternal, Horizon: Zero Dawn and the base version of Metro: Exodus. Overall, there will be more testing – eventually I’m planning twelve measurements in rasterization and six in ray tracing, so either way there’s only one hole left to fill. However, I did select the overclocking section, which regularly loses relevance, and also reduced the number of DLSS/FSR benchmarks to Cyberpunk 2077.
