I chose high-end, mid-, and mainstream graphics cards to cover all market segments. Some of you would like to see more GPUs tested, but the day only has 24 hours.

To monitor power consumption and every other important aspect of the system, I will use Powenetics v2.

Besides a 4K 43″ Samsung monitor, I also use a Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 when I need to run tests at high refresh rates (240 Hz).

I will benchmark Starfield in HD, QHD, and 4K resolutions. I used the Ultra graphics preset with FSR disabled. The screenshot above clearly shows the settings I used.
