More benchmarks

In order to determine the performance of a graphics card, so-called "benchmarks" are carried out. The benchmark software carries out special calculations to determine the performance of a graphics card. We use so-called theoretical or synthetic benchmarks (e.g. 3D Mark) as well as real game benchmarks. To ensure real comparability of the results, we pay attention to the correct execution of the benchmarks as well as the condition of the graphics card and the system.

We use the following benchmarks to measure the performance of a graphics card:
