"Counter-Strike 2 GPU Benchmarks & Comparison: NVIDIA, AMD, & Intel Tes - [briefly] 06:23 PM EDT - Oct,03 2023 - post a comment This benchmark tests Counter-Strike 2, the successor to CSGO (Global Offensive), for GPU performance across a few maps and a lot of video cards. One of our primary areas of interest for this game has been frametime pacing. Although not too bad overall on our systems, the occasional hitches we did encounter were often large or noticeable even as one-offs. We spend a bit of time exploring those, but also talk about the difference of test environments with smoke grenades, incendiary grenades, or just firefights. We ultimately settled on a benchmark scene that involved smoke grenades for about half the benchmark, with a mix of traversal and firefights for the other half. This represents the average player's round pretty well. Testing included cards like the NVIDIA RTX 4090, RTX 4080, AMD RX 7900 XTX, 7800 XT, and plenty of prior generation cards, like the GTX 1650, GTX 1060, and so on. Intel Arc was also tested for the A750 and A770."
