We use Final Fantasy XV Benchmark to simulate a gaming workload but for those looking extreme loads, we do put our cards through 3DMark Time Spy on first installation for stress testing to check for stability. For our reviews though, we use Final Fantasy XV to simulate a true gaming scenario. Power draw is captured inline via PCAT or Powenetics so no other components affects readings. Readings are taken from the average 15 minutes for both load and idle.
