- For this article, all games were retested using the same driver; the only difference is whether PCIe Resizable BAR is enabled or disabled in BIOS.
- 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.
