Game performance - 720p
We include game tests at 720p (1280x720 pixels) resolution. The games tested are put through 720p using a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card with the best settings.
Why measure a resolution of 1280x720 pixels?
We include 720p results based on user/reader base requests. It's here where CPU scaling performance is extremely visible. If you think a little more about what you are actually seeing in the charts from 720p up to 1440p, you'll realize that what we are showing is the effect of raw CPU performance, not restricted by any sort of GPU bound situation, and your gameplay is pretty much always limited by your GPU. That is also why we opt to test with the fastest and most expensive graphics card. We realize really that no one purchases a PC with an RTX 2080 Ti to game at 720p with this processor, the results, however, are of a theoretical and statistical value. 720p numbers also could interest PC gamers with fast 120 Hz and 144 Hz monitors that want to squeeze out every last frame in performance. 720p tests here serve as a theoretical and, really, an additional synthetic test. Our GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is used to bypass any GPU limitation. The reality with, say, GeForce RTX 2070 or Radeon RX 5700 is simple - the scores would be much closer to each other.
