Monitoring programs

MSI Afterburner

 
All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality using MSI Afterburner. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. Below is a video of the test segment:

Total performance

Next, we will begin processing the results of our test. So, to find out what the fastest video cards are in games in 2021, we will sum up their total FPS in the tested games.

2023: Test GPU
  • Max
  • Screen resolutions 1 out of 3

  • Hide DLSS/FSR video cards

  • Loading...

For all resolutions,  the top three  were MSI GEFORCE RTX 4090 GAMING X TRIO 24 GB , AORUS Radeon RX 7900 XTX ELITE 24G and ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 OC .

Relative performance

Each chart shows the tested MSI GEFORCE RTX 4090 GAMING X TRIO graphics card as 100% performance and shows the % performance of every other graphics card relative to it. The percentage indicator was displayed for each game separately, and then the average % relative to all tested games was derived from all these indicators.

Per FPS 1920

Per FPS 2560

Per FPS 3840

The higher the resolution, the further the MSI GEFORCE RTX 4090 GAMING X TRIO moves away from its companions in the form of the M AORUS Radeon RX 7900 XTX ELITE 24G and  ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 OC . And if at a resolution of 1920x1080 they lag behind by only 16%, then at 2560x1440 they lag behind by 20-22%, and at 4K the lag is already up to 20-27%.

DETERMINING THE MOST PERFORMANCE SOLUTIONS AMONG PROCESSORS

Total performance

Next, we will begin processing the results of our test. So, to find out which are the fastest CPU solutions in games of 2021, we will also sum up their overall FPS in the tested games.

2023: Test CPU
  • Max
  • All screen resolutions

  • All processors

  • Loading...

When using  NVIDIA  video cards , the top three look like this: Core i9 14900K, A Core i9 13900K , Core i 14700K .

When using  AMD video cards, the same top three are Core i9 14900K, A Core i9 13900K , Core i 14700K .

Relative performance

Each chart shows the tested Core i9 14900K processor as 100% performance and shows the % performance of every other processor relative to it. The percentage indicator was displayed for each game separately, and then the average % relative to all tested games was derived from all these indicators.

Per FPS CPU NV

Per FPS CPU AMD

 Each chart shows the tested Core i9 14900K processor as 100% performance and shows the % performance of every other processor relative to it.

DETERMINING THE MOST PROFITABLE SOLUTIONS AMONG VIDEO CARDS

Video card prices

PRICE NV

The price was taken based on proposals for the average minimum price of each solution, which can be found in stock in Hotline catalogs and other platforms for the month of January, although their availability may be questionable.

Total FPS/$%

And the next step is to identify the most profitable purchases, as a result of which we can buy the largest number of FPS for 1 $. We divide the total FPS by the cost of video cards and get the number of FPS that we can purchase for $1. Then, regarding the most optimal solution, we take the % ratio of its optimality for other solutions.

Per 1920

1920x1080 : for this resolution, the Radeon RX 6800, Radeon RX 6600, Radeon RX 6800 XT are in the lead in terms of price per FPS.

Per 2560

2560x1440 : for this resolution, the Radeon RX 6800, Radeon RX 6800 XT, Radeon RX 6600 are in the lead in terms of price per FPS.

Per 3840

3840x2160: for this resolution, the leader in terms of price per FPS is the Radeon RX 6800, Radeon RX 6800 XT , Radeon RX 6950 XT .  

DETERMINING OPTIMAL SOLUTIONS FOR PURCHASING AMONG VIDEO CARDS

Well, our standard definition of Optimality from previous years, which was taken only in relation to the prices of video cards and the resulting number of frames, is of course good, but there is a small flaw - some solutions are too fast, but expensive and at the very bottom of this rating, while others are too slow and although they They are very profitable to buy, but they are not able to show even more or less sane FPS.

Therefore, we decided to take the average percentage value between the two values ​​​​of the overall performance and profitability of the purchase

OPTIMALITY OF PURCHASE FPS & $ % = (RELATIVE PERFORMANCE % + PERFORMANCE PER DOLLAR FPS/$ %) / 2 

And as it turned out, the results were very interesting and fully reflect the optimality of purchasing solutions for each resolution...

OPTIMAL 1920

1920x1080 : for this resolution the Radeon RX 6800 XT, Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 7900 XT are in the lead for optimal resolution.

OPTIMAL 2560

2560x1440 : for this resolution, the best options for purchase are the Radeon RX 7900 XT, GEFORCE RTX 4090 and Radeon RX 6800 XT.

OPTIMAL 3840

2560x1440 : for this resolution, the best options for purchase are GEFORCE RTX 4090, Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 6950 XT.

DETERMINING THE MOST PROFITABLE SOLUTIONS AMONG PROCESSORS

Processor prices

PRICE CPU

The price was taken based on proposals for the average minimum price of each solution, which can be found in stock in the Hotline and other platform catalogs for the month of January, although their availability may be questionable.

Overall FPS/Price of processors 1920x1080 

And the next step is to identify the most profitable purchases, as a result of which we can buy the largest number of FPS for 1 $. We divide the total FPS by the cost of video cards and get the number of FPS that we can purchase for $1. Then, regarding the most optimal solution, we take the % ratio of its optimality for other solutions.

Per CPU NV 

When using an NVIDIA video card , in terms of price per FPS, the Core i3 12100 , Ryzen 3 3100 and Core i5 12400 are ahead .

Per CPU amd

When using an AMD video card , in terms of price per FPS, the Core i3 12100 , Ryzen 3 3100 and Core i5 12400 are ahead .  

DETERMINING THE MOST OPTIMAL SOLUTIONS AMONG PROCESSORS

The algorithm is the same for processors

OPTIMALITY OF PURCHASE FPS & $ % = (RELATIVE PERFORMANCE % + PERFORMANCE PER DOLLAR FPS/$ %) / 2 

Let's look at the results

OPTIMAL CPU NV

When using an NVIDIA video card , the optimal purchases are Core i3 12100 ,  Core i5 12400  and Ryzen 5 5600 .

OPTIMAL CPU amd

When using an AMD video card , the optimal ones to buy are Core i3 12100 ,  Core i5 12400  and Ryzen 5 5600 .
