  1. You should re-do your FPS graphs. Right now the transparency is too low and it makes them hard to read. The average fps bars should probably be full opacity, as you want those to be easily seen and easy to compare between the cards. The background images are nice but you have to emphasise clarity in graphs over pretty presentation.

    I’d also say that the i5 at only 3.9 ghz is way too low and will be a problem when testing higher end cards, so you’re gonna have not very comparable data.

    Good luck!

    1. Hi, are you talking about the Low 0.1% FPS graphs or about all the game graphs? I will edit them ASAP to 85% opacity and perhaps add a stroke on the FPS number to make it easier to read.
      I agree with you about the Skylake i5, unfortunately, the upgrade cycle for CPUs and Graphics Cards is so small that I would need to do a CPU swap every other year. Chances are that when I will get high end graphics cards, I will also be able to afford a high end CPU. Until then, I have to make do with a Skylake i5 and a Ryzen 1700X.

      Thank you for the feedback!
