For those who've been following our reviews, take note that we've replaced our old test rig with a brand new one for 2013. Here are the new specs we'll be running with:
For many of the comparisons, we had to use add-on partner cards to act as reference ones. They were downclocked to the clock speeds of their reference counterparts in order to gauge their performance with updated drivers. Here's the list of cards we've used for testing:-
Note 1: In our performance testing, we left the default temperature ceiling at 80 degrees Celsius as most users would leave it as default. Only at our overclocking exercise did we increase the power target at 104 per cent and our temperature target was automatically increased to 89 degree Celsius.
Here's the full list of benchmarks that we'll be using for our initial GTX 760 assessment:-
