Test System Specifications




For our mid-range testing, we're shifting over to testing the cards on our AMD Ryzen 5 1600X system. It represents more real-world results compared to benchmarking them on the Core i7-7700K, especially when the Ryzen 5 1600X is priced at $100 cheaper than the 7700K, and offers 6C/12T of performance over the 4C/8T chip from Intel.


Detailed Tech Specs


  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600X (6C/12T)
  • Cooler: AMD Wraith Cooler
  • MB: ASRock AB350 Gaming K4
  • RAM: 16GB (2x8GB) GEiL EVO X 3200MHz DDR4
