3DMark is a multi-platform hardware benchmark designed to test varying resolutions and detail levels of 3D gaming performance. We run the Windows platform test and in particular the Time Spy benchmark, which is indicative of high-end 1440p PC Gaming.
The Division 2
We use the game’s built-in benchmark with quality set to Ultra, VSync disabled, and DX12 mode.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
We run the built-in benchmark using the DirectX 12 mode, anti-aliasing disabled, and the Highest quality preset.
The margins in gaming performance between motherboards are slim, but Gigabyte does consistently outperform its competitors by small, repeatable amounts. This is most notable in Shadow of the Tomb Raider whereby the TRX40 Aorus Master’s average and 95% CPU FPS values are chart-topping.
You should not expect to put yourself in a new tier of gaming performance using the TRX40 Aorus Master. However, the gaming results we have seen are repeatably strong from Gigabyte’s offering.
