Avoid expensive bottlenecks with balanced builds.

EFps Gaming Bottlenecks

An AMD Ryzen 3700X bottlenecks an Nvidia 2070 Super: the 3700X costs 40% more money for 11% less performance. The lost performance is similar to downgrading from a 2070S to a 2060S. Publishing EFps data puts UserBenchmark in conflict with the marketing from billion dollar corporations, but it also helps our users to build faster PCs by dodging marketing traps. Users can verify EFps figures with Afterburner

We do

  • Focus on user verifiable facts and figures.
  • Buy all of our hardware from mainstream shops: no golden "free" samples here.
  • Provide PC details, driver versions, game settings and source video for our EFps figures.
  • Pick games that most of our users actually play. (ACO, BFV etc. are relatively unpopular)

We don't

  • Put lipstick on pigs for sponsorship fees.
  • Care for brands: red, green or blue. PC hardware isn’t a fashion show, performance comes first.
  • Test at 1440p or 4K: these resolutions are rarely optimal for gaming (refresh rate > size >> resolution).
  • Get fooled by the corporate army of anonymous forum and reddit advisors that prey on first time buyers.

So that

  • You get the best PC gaming experience for your money.
  • You can use Afterburner to check our fps results against your hardware.
  • Manufacturers prioritize research & development over predatory marketing via social media.
  • Our next decade is more productive than the last: we are on track to benchmark 25% of all PCs.

Intel vs AMD

Although Intel continues to offer better CPUs at lower prices, Intel also consistently fails to engage in social media marketing. As a result, since the launch of Ryzen, AMD have carved 50 billion dollars of blubber off Intel’s bottom line. Whilst AMD relentlessly develop new marketing assets, Intel is, once again, motivated to develop new CPU architectures. The dynamic between the two companies enables well informed users to purchase better hardware for less money.
The Best.
