TweakTown's new GPU Benchmarking Rig (Updated for 2017)

RAM & Storage

 

I reached out to our friends at OCZ about some NVMe M.2 SSDs, and they were beyond generous by sending us a bunch of their new RD400 drives. I've used the 1TB OCZ RD400 NVMe M.2 SSD inside of both our new GPU benchmarking rig with the Core i7-7700K, and my new workstation/gaming build with the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X processor.

This tiny drive is capable of 2600 MB/sec reads, and up to 1600 MB/sec writes. It's absolutely insane.

 

 

G.SKILL hooked us up with a 16GB kit of their wicked-fast Trident Z DDR4-4000MHz RAM, which looks great in this system.

It looks so good, I think I'll need to see if G.SKILL will send over another couple of kits. In the right light, the G.SKILL Trident Z looks God-like.
