MSI B450 Tomahawk Motherboard Review

3DMark

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.


Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation

Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation is a Sci-Fi real-time strategy game built for the PC platform. The game includes a built-in benchmark tool and was one of the first available DirectX 12 benchmarks. We run the CPU-focused benchmark using DirectX 12, a 1080p resolution and the Extreme quality preset.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is an action role-playing stealth video game released in August 2016. A built-in benchmark utility is included and we test using the Ultra quality preset and the DirectX 12 API at a 1080p resolution.

GPU performance was consistent with what we’d expect to see for this motherboard and CPU combination.

For a rough guide of how gaming performance compares to Intel’s Z370 platform, with an i7 8700K, please see KitGuru’s most recent Z370 motherboard review. Please note software and driver versions have changed hence why we caution that results are not directly comparable.
