As we said in the introduction, we’re (once again) busy updating all our graphics with the latest drivers from NVIDIA, AMD and now, of course, INTEL. We’ve also taken the opportunity to slightly modify our test configuration. So here we go again, with a new series of tests and graphics on this slightly modified configuration:
- Motherboard: ROG Maximus Z690 APEX
- Processor: Intel Alder Lake i9-12900K
- Memory : 32 GB Corsair Vengeance 5200 CL38 DDR5
- Graphics card: MSI RTX 4060 Ti Gaming X Trio 8G
- Cooling system : Asus ROG Ryujin II 360
- SSD: Western Digital Black SN750 2 TB + EKWB radiator
- Power supply: Corsair AX1600i + 12VHPWR 600W adapter
- Operating system: Windows 11 64-bit
For this test, we used a high-end configuration featuring an i9-12900K processor and DDR5. The use of a 144 Hz 4K display is also a sine qua non. For our tests, we’re using the ROG PG27UQ.
As we said in the introduction to this article, all our tests have been redone over the last few days with all our cards and the latest drivers available!
The drivers used are the latest from each manufacturer, with NVIDIA 531.93, AMD’s Adrenalin-Edition-23.10.01.16 and Intel’s 22.214.171.12469 for the two ARC models.
Our test protocol :
All cards are tested at stock frequencies and without any optimization. For the various benchmarks, whether synthetics or games, we’ll opt for 1080p, 1440p and 2160p resolutions, depending on the card’s performance. Here, with this model, we’ll be using 1080p and 1440p for Rasterization and 1080p for Ray Tracing.
As you can see, we’re now running Windows 11, and we’ve activated the ” ReSize BAR ” in the BIOS, which can be seen in GPU-Z. Now that you know everything about our test configuration, it’s time to get started!
