Fallout 4 - AMD vs Nvidia Performance Review

1080p, 1440p and 4K testing at Ultra Settings

We can see here that at ultra setting that this game heavily favours Nvidia, which is unsurprising given that this game makes use of many Nvidia made graphical features and  the fact that The Elder Scrolls: Shyrim was known as being very Nvidia friendly when it was first released. 

One thing to note here is that AMD has not released a game specific driver for Fallout 4, giving Nvidia an advantage on the driver side, aswell as the fact that this game is made using Nvidia graphical effects.

When looking at the relative performance as Ultra settings we can see that Nvidia has a dominating lead, where at 1080p Nvidia's minimum FPS is higher than AMD's average. The results become more even as the resolution is upped to 4K, but Nvidia still lead here.   

 

*Updated with New Catalyst Drivers

Hi

I installed the Nvidia update and went with the recommended settings which were "Ultra" on my GTX 980. I really appreciate your article and photos. I got a couple hours into the game and at 1440P on Ultra it was very smooth for me.

I really am going to go in and make the changes to low quality and turn god rays off eventually. Right now i wish I had a vacation day available to actually play today

Loving it so far

awesome review Mark, lots of info to read up on for those who are not yet playing the game.

it would be awesome if you could add in sli/crossfire scaling for people still rocking older hardware and maybe if you got time to add in i5 vs i7?

only if you got timeQuote

Am I the only one who's not seeing the article/and link in the OP?

Nice write up WYP, although it would be interesting to see some i5 vs i7 comparisons. Someone in a different thread reported a website benchmarking both and there were big differences between them.Quote

I'm finding the performance to be pretty good thus far. I'm getting a steady 60fps pretty much everywhere, with the very occasional drop into the 40's kind of like the way Skyrim was.

That's at 1080p with an i7-6700k and GTX 780 where neither are overclocked.Quote
