I've run a number of benchmarks and other tests, so this is just a sampling of my earlier tests to make a point. Windows Performance settings matter a lot. Updating the video driver matters a lot. Some folks may see this as common sense, but many don't really understand the performance benefits...so here's a concrete example where you can see the bump in performance benchmarks with each step. There are real-world framerate/performance benefits during gameplay too, and they can be noticeable. There are plenty more performance tweaks you can make. I didn't even overclock here and bumped my Time Spy score by 216 points. This was part of my testing to establish a performance baseline before overclocking. Remember to look at the difference in the GPU/CPU details, not just the aggregate score. These tweaks didn't impact CPU or GPU heat/temps the way overclocking does.
