There is no point in running benchmarks on gaming rigs with high or enthusiast level graphics cards. Because lets be honest, every single game will run smoothly without any issues on a RTX 2070 Super or a RX 5700 XT.

The game ran smooth for the most part. We did experience minor hiccups here and there but they can be easily overlooked. The only problem was that at some instances the frame rate of the game was dropping drastically for a second and then was going back up immediately.
