due to its CCD design, and much more affordable, too.

- All games and cards are tested with the drivers listed above—no performance results were recycled between test systems. Only this exact system with exactly the same configuration is used.
- All graphics cards are tested using the same game version.
- All games are set to their highest quality setting unless indicated otherwise.
- AA and AF are applied via in-game settings, not via the driver's control panel.
- Before starting measurements, we heat up the card for each test to ensure a steady state is tested. This ensures that the card won't boost to unrealistically high clocks for only a few seconds until it heats up, as that doesn't represent prolonged gameplay.
- 1920x1080: Most popular monitor resolution.
- 2560x1440: Intermediary resolution between Full HD and 4K with reasonable performance requirements.
