CapFrameX

We’re working with CapFrameX to deliver this review to you. Right now, we’re exploring the viability of CapFrameX from a data collection and presentation perspective and we’re giving it the trial-by-fire approach by using it on this review. This gives us a feel of the workflow as well allowing us to show our readers if the charts are usable enough for sharing and at-a-glance analysis of laypeople. We’ll have a dedicated article for CapFrameX once we’ve done more reviews and have built up the database. So far ease-of-use could need improving as once heavily populated with data, filtering results and filtering GPU SKUs is hard.

Since this is a GPU review, we benchmarked the area of the games that put heavy load on the GPU.

All our test runs are repeatable, click the links below for area and details. Read our benchmarking methodology.

  • DOTA2 – Kiev Major Grand Finals Game 5: OG vs Virtus.Pro (54:05 – 55:05)
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive: FPS Benchmark Workshop Map
  • The Witcher 3 – Woesong Bridge
  • Grand Theft Auto V – Palomino Highlands
  • Rainbow Six: Siege – Benchmark Mode
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider – Kuwaq Yaqu
  • Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019 – Fog of War
  • Monster Hunter World: Iceborne – Wildspire Waste
  • F1 2020 – Benchmark Mode

See our Youtube playlist for benchmark sequences.

Note: Some proprietary technologies of NVIDIA like PCSSHBAO+, and HairWorks work on AMD GPU’s BUT to maintain uniformity amongst GPUs, these have been turned OFF.

You can click on any of the benchmark charts enlarge. You can also move forward and backwards to quickly navigate through our charts via gallery view. For this test, only the out-of-box normal mode will be tested.
