All 2015 VGA Charts

You are here : Graphics Cards > 2015 VGA Charts

Our brand new 2015 VGA charts are designed to do justice to graphics cards between mainstream and the highest end. We will therefore cover entry-level graphics solutions in a different charts set, as comparing these to high-end card makes limited sense. We run as many as 10 selected benchmarks at resolutions of 1920x1080 (Full HD) as well as 3840x2160 (UHD). Both are run at suitable quality settings. The new Charts test system is based on a Core i7-4930K, which we overclock to 4.0 GHz. It runs on an Asus Rampage IV Black Edition motherboard with 32 GB Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR3 2133 memory. Testing also includes our state-of-the-art equipment to track power consumption in great detail and to measure operating noise through calibrated studio microphones as well as the required software. Lastly, we added an efficiency index, which is based on the gaming index (average game performance at Full HD resolution) and the measured power requirement in a gaming loop.
