General Benchmarks
Power Consumption To emulate real-world usage scenarios, we record system-wide mains power draw both when idle and while playing Tom Clancy's The Division 2
Temperature To emulate real-world usage scenarios, we record GPU core temperature both when idle and while playing Tom Clancy's The Division 2
Noise A PCE-318 meter is used to record noise levels when idle and while playing Tom Clancy's The Division 2
Overclocking Maintaining out-the-box voltage, we use the MSI's Afterburner to determine an optimal frequency curve while applying a manual memory overclock

Notes

We have tested nine cards from the ground up for this review. All were benchmarked on the latest drivers as of June 29, 2019, and Windows was updated and all games patches were applied, as well.

Having new cards gives us the opportunity of debuting games into the suite and changing the quality settings so they are even more stringent. You'll notice that Civilization VI has been updated to the Gathering Storm DLC, Far Cry now uses New Dawn, while Total War carries the more intensive Three Kingdoms benchmark. There's also World War Z, ostensibly for Vulkan performance, and, because we enjoy it, The Division 2.
