We tested F1 2017 with 21 graphics cards, ranging from an entry-level RX 550 to high-end cards such as the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and the Radeon RX Vega cards. The built-in benchmark was used to measure the performance of the GPUs. We set it at two laps in order to increase the accuracy of our test.
We used our GPU test system for this test, which consists of the following components:
- Intel Core i9 7900X Skylake-X 10-core CPU @ 4.5 GHz
- ASUS Strix X299-E Gaming motherboard
- G.Skill Trident Z 32 GB DDR4-3200 CL14 memory
- 2x Samsung 840 Evo 1 TB SSD
- Windows 10 64-bit Creators Update
We used the drivers that featured the newest game-specific optimizations. On AMD's side this is the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 17.8.2, on Nvidia's side this is the GeForce 385.41 driver.
