Custom PC - - REVIEW / NEW KIT -

By us­ing the fast PC de­tailed on the left, we can be sure that any lim­i­ta­tions are due to the graph­ics card on test, rather than be­ing CPU limited. We test Deus Ex: Mankind Di­vided, Doom, Cr­y­sis 3, Fall­out 4 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt at their max­i­mum de­tail set­tings, in their high­est DirectX mode, at sev­eral res­o­lu­tions. High-end cards should be able to sus­tain playable frame rates at 2,560 x 1,440, while 1,920 x 1,080 is more im­por­tant for mid-range cards; we also test at 3,840 x 2,160 for 4K mon­i­tors, and try to over­clock ev­ery graph­ics card we test to as­sess the per­for­mance im­pact.
