UL Benchmarks, the company behind the 3DMark synthetic test suite, has presented a new test just in time for the launch of the third generation of Ryzen processors. It is a test focused on the performance of the PCIe, and is compatible with the 4.0, so anyone who gets on the car of the new Ryzen with an X570 board will have a clear advantage over other users: they are the only ones that will start have the new standard.
Although it sounds ironic, the company itself admits that when it comes to the truth, the performance of a PC does not depend on the bandwidth of a PCIe track, but of course “the increase offered by the 4.0 opens new possibilities to the hardware of the future “. The test focuses exclusively on that bandwidth, and for that it sends a large amount of information of vertices and textures to the GPU for each frame. Right now the 3DMark suite is at 3.74 euros, downgraded thanks to the Steam summer offers.
