After a few years of using the HEDT platform from Intel and ASUS, with the Core i7-5960X and Rampage V Extreme motherboard - I've finally switched over to a more mainstream CPU. As of now, every graphics card review will be run through Intel's new Core i7-7700K processor and the AORUS Z270X-Gaming 9 motherboard.
Now that I've hired some additional staff here in my office (my expansions of my day-to-day duties for TweakTown are continuously expanding), I can benchmark and run more tests and graphics cards than ever before. We're currently running all of our graphics cards through this new Core i7-7700K/AORUS Z270X-Gaming 9 system, while running the same cards through our AMD Ryzen 7 1800X platform.
This way, we can introduce Ryzen CPU performance into a series of 'versus' articles, seeing how Ryzen and Kaby Lake perform against one another. There are also new resolutions that are now in our default testing, with 3440x1440 making a permanent return. I was one of the first to dive into the 21:9 aspect ratio, and have four 3440x1440 displays in the lab right now. They are an amazing alternative to 4K gaming, especially with its 21:9 aspect ratio and 34-inch size.
In the very near future, we will be securing 5K and 8K displays as we get closer to the launch of AMD's next-gen Radeon RX Vega, which will push 8K gaming - something we will be on top of from day one.
For now, take a look around our new GPU benchmarking testbed.
