Testing Suite and Methodology Update

05/14/2016 - 21:46

If you have followed our graphics testing at PC Perspective you’ll know about a drastic shift we made in 2012 to support a technology we called Frame Rating. Frame Rating use the direct capture of output from the system into uncompressed video...

Dissecting the GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition

05/14/2016 - 21:44
