Fall Extreme Gamer System Shootout Part 2: ABS M6

Test Setup Summary And Comments

The scores we derived from the ABS M6 were good. They were on par with what we expected them the system. Overall, it turned out better performance than our reference system, except for one of the benchmarks. It ran in the middle of the pack compared to the other systems in this series but we will leave that for the wrap-up article.

All data we gathered from testing this system showed that it was entirely acceptable. All tests ran without a hitch and we were pleased with the quality of game play and overall system performance. Below is the test system we ran our tests on for the main reference point.
