ASUS ROG Strix Advantage 2021 w/ Kingston 3200 Time Spy Display Comparisons

2022-02-17
Time Spy comparisons of the different display connectors

TLDR

USB-C is the best🎉, BUT the scores aren't really consistent. They don't vary by much.

Ranked Best to Worst
1. USB-C to DisplayPort Run 1 - Overall 11,613. Graphics 11,812. CPU 10,563. https://www.3dmark.com/spy/26377377

2. USB-C to DisplayPort w/ HDMI also plugged in Run 1 - Overall 11,564. Graphics 11,802. CPU 10,379. https://www.3dmark.com/spy/26399252

3. USB-C to DisplayPort Run 2 - Overall 11,540. Graphics 11,789. CPU 10,309. https://www.3dmark.com/spy/26399517

4. Laptop ONLY. No External Monitor plugged in. - Overall 11,537. Graphics 11,777. CPU 10,346. https://www.3dmark.com/spy/26377792

5. USB-C to DisplayPort w/ HDMI also plugged in Run 2 - Overall 11,521. Graphics 11,782. CPU 10,238. https://www.3dmark.com/spy/26399393

6. HDMI Run 1 - Overall 11,414. Graphics 11,701. CPU 10,024. https://www.3dmark.com/spy/26373301

7. HDMI Run 2 - Overall 11,238. Graphics 11,473. CPU 10,072. https://www.3dmark.com/spy/26373540

Notes:
1. When running with USB-C, Task Manager reports the integrated GPU running at 0% during Time Spy tests
2. "Displayport to USB-C w/ HDMI also plugged in" means Time Spy ran on the monitor with USB-C, but I had another monitor plugged in to HDMI with nothing on it.
3. The key to max performance with this laptop is faster ram for the Ryzen CPUs. The stock ram is not good.
