Test Setup

For our tests, we used a test rig which includes the BIOSTAR Racing X570GT8 Motherboard, along with an AMD Ryzen 7 – 3700X at default clock speed of 3.6GHz (turbo boost 4.4GHz), as well as 16GB of GEIL Super Luce RGB DDR4-3600 ram in dual channel mode.

All tests were conducted at turbo clock speeds at a resolution of 1920×1080. High or Ultra settings enabled.

Load Temps

Surprisingly, CPU load temperatures reached 80 degrees Celsius, which is quite high… and I wasn’t expecting that. Maybe the motherboard was running the CPU at a boost speed of 4.0GHz (which, by the way I didn’t set).
