Avoid expensive bottlenecks with balanced builds.

EFps Gaming Bottlenecks

PC components are similar to links in a chain: weak components bottleneck the whole system. For example: 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.

We do

  • Focus on user verifiable facts and figures.
  • Choose games that most of our users actually play.
  • 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.

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 worth playing at (refresh rate > size >> resolution).
  • Get fooled by the corporate army of fake forum and reddit accounts that prey on inexperienced shoppers.

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.
The Best.
