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

Wrapping Up


The fruits of this new Core i7-7700K/Z270X-Gaming 9 motherboard labor are already here, with our latest graphics card reviews being benchmarked and powered by the new 7700K rig. I have a review of MSI's new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G locked and loaded, ready to go - as well as EVGA's newish GeForce GTX 1080 SC2 iCX graphics card - and I've now started testing the new AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11G graphics card.




Shifting to the more mainstream Core i7-7700K means we'll get more 'real-world' results instead of using a ridiculously expensive Core i7-6950X, which most people don't own, and can't afford. This doesn't mean I won't be benchmarking with higher-end CPUs, but for our graphics card benchmarking system - the 7700K it is.



I do have another rig with AMD's latest Ryzen 7 1800X in it, and we're benchmarking a lot of our graphics cards in there as we're preparing for a Core i7-7700K vs. Ryzen 7 1800X article, which is coming soon. Then we'll be able to continue to push out 7700K vs. 1800X articles, showing the difference between both sides of the fence.


Thanks to our partners in GIGABYTE, Corsair, OCZ, AMD, NVIDIA, and more. Without you, this isn't possible - and it provides us with a new rock-solid foundation for countless articles and videos in the future.
