Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the best open-world RPGs ever. In our performance article, we're taking a closer look at the hardware requirements, using 22 modern graphics cards. We also have tons of screenshots and a side-by-side image comparison for raytracing and DLSS quality.
Essentially, the Naos-M is a lightweight (63 g) version of the Zowie S2. Much like previous HK Gaming releases, this one comes with PixArt's PMW3360 sensor, Omron (20M) main button switches, a highly flexible cable, and high-quality mouse feet. RGB lighting and software customization are included as well.
The FSP Hydro PTM Pro 1200 W is very quiet and of high build quality. This makes it an excellent candidate for a power-hungry current-generation GPU from NVIDIA or AMD. Can it compete with the offerings from ASUS, Seasonic and Corsair?
Striking a balance between functional thermal design and flashy RGB aesthetics, the XPG SPECTRIX D50 offers an alternative to the RGB spectacle of the SPECTRIX D60G. Let's see how the Ryzen-optimized XPG SPECTRIX D50 kit stacks up!
AMD's Radeon RX 6900 XT offers convincing 4K gaming performance, yet stays below 300 W. Thanks to this impressive efficiency, the card is almost whisper-quiet, quieter than any RTX 3090 we've ever tested. In our review, we not only benchmark the RX 6900 XT on Intel, but also on Zen 3, with fast memory and Smart Access Memory enabled.
The Palit GeForce RTX 3070 JetStream OC has the highest power limit adjustment range of all RTX 3070 cards we've tested so far: up to 330 W. The large triple-slot, dual-fan heatsink has better cooling potential than the Founders Edition, and fan-stop is included, too.
The Thermaltake S100 TG is the mATX version of the S300, with both being part of an all-steel family of enclosures. The S100 TG sports a magnetic swing-open glass side panel and the same solid metal cover design as its bigger sibling, while clocking in at a lower sub-$65 price point.
The Gigabyte GP-P750GM makes lots of promises, but fails to deliver. Its platform features a modern design, but the parts used are of mediocre to low quality, and to make matters worse, the protection features are not working correctly.
With the Katar Pro Wireless, Corsair brings wireless to a highly competitive price point. Powered by a single AA-battery and usable either in 2.4 GHz or Bluetooth mode, the Katar Pro Wireless weighs in at 98 g and comes with PixArt's PMW3325 sensor.
NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060 Ti comes at incredible pricing of $399, yet beats the GeForce RTX 2080 Super in rasterization, and even the RX 6800 in raytracing. In our RTX 3060 Ti review, we found that NVIDIA picked a fantastic cooler that's extremely quiet, yet fits everywhere because of its dual-slot design.
The ASUS GeForce RTX 3060 Ti STRIX uses the same cooler as the RTX 3090 STRIX. This makes it the coolest card by far at only 58°C under full load. We were also impressed by the noise levels of the quiet BIOS, which is just the flick of a switch away because of dual-BIOS capability.
The MSI GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Gaming X Trio comes with a large factory overclock and achieves impressive noise levels that are the lowest today, almost whisper-quiet. We also measured good temperatures on this triple-slot, triple-fan cooler.
The Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Gaming OC Pro comes overclocked out of the box, and the power limit has been raised, too. The large triple-slot, triple-fan cooler achieves impressive temperatures of only 62°C, and a dual-BIOS feature is included as well.
Palit's GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GamingPro OC comes with a large factory overclock that lets it match the performance of more expensive custom designs. The power limit has been increased to 240 W, and the cooler includes the highly popular fan-stop capability.
The Zotac GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Twin Edge is the only custom design that matches the NVIDIA MSRP of $400. While it lacks a factory overclock, pricing makes it a tempting choice, especially considering the large price hikes of other custom boards.
EK goes all in with the AIO Elite 360 D-RGB. For this release, the company took their 360 D-RGB unit, added more RGB Vardar fans, and upped the performance of the pump. Add in some minor cosmetic changes and you have a top-tier, high-end all-in-one liquid cooler that delivers serious performance.
The BIOSTAR Racing B550GTQ offers a unique perspective on AMD's recent B550 chipset. Featuring ten 90 A power stages in an unusual layout and the rare Micro ATX form factor, the B550GTQ could be the ultimate APU platform.
Deepcool delivers a solid air cooler with the AS500. This single-tower design includes a tasteful ARGB lighting implementation and offers 100% memory clearance. More importantly, it delivers solid performance and acceptable noise levels, making it an attractive mid-range option if your case can handle its height.
The MSI RTX 3090 Suprim X is the company's new flagship card. It is highly overclocked, to 1860 MHz rated boost, and ticks at a power limit of 420 W. In our review, it was the quietest RTX 3090 we've ever tested, quieter than the EVGA FTW3 Ultra, almost whisper-quiet.
For the longest time, ROCCAT has been known for their right-handed ergonomic mice. The Burst Pro not only is ambidextrous, it also comes with a 70 g lightweight design, optical switches for the main buttons, a particularly flexible cable, high quality PTFE mouse feet, and PixArt's PMW3389 sensor.
The ASUS Radeon RX 6800 XT STRIX OC LC comes with an integrated 240 mm watercooling unit that achieves outstanding temperatures. We found unbelievable overclocking potential on our sample, much better than all the other RX 6800 XT cards we've tested before.
PowerColor's Radeon RX 6800 XT Red Devil is a limited edition, just 1000 cards will be made. We were impressed by its noise levels and temperatures, which are better than the AMD reference. The card also comes with an increased power limit and a dual-BIOS feature.
The Sapphire Radeon RX 6800 XT Nitro+ is the company's top dog custom-design variant. Its large triple-slot, triple-fan cooler runs cooler and quieter than the AMD reference. Thanks to a dual BIOS, you may go even quieter by switching to the "quiet" BIOS.
The QNAP QGD-1602P is an innovative product, a NAS and managed PoE switch in a single package. It is expensive, but offers numerous features and uses hardware capable of coping with demanding scenarios. Finally, its build quality is astonishing—this product is built like a tank.
The Team Group Vulcan G SSD is priced extremely competitively: just $80 for the reviewed 1 TB version, it is more affordable than other entry-level SSDs. The Vulcan G is also considerably faster than the Samsung 870 QVO and Crucial BX500.
