Metal Gear Solid 5 AMD vs Nvidia Performance Review with ASUS

4K Gaming with ASUS GTX 980 and R9 Fury

 

When playing this game one thing became immediately apparent, that it is exceptionally easy to run and when combined with the game's 60FPS Framerate cap we sadly do not have much room to give this game a proper testing. 

With our ASUS R9 Fury Strix and our ASUS GTX 980 we could only get our framerates below the frame cap of 60FPS when playing at 4K resolutions with the highest game settings. This meant that any tests on lower resolutions like 1440p or even 1080p were pointless, as the graphs would give us 60FPS throughout, so for right now we have only tested the game at a resolution of 4K. 

These results are unsurprising, as the console versions of the game have been made to target a framerate of 60 FPS, meaning that higher end PC grade hardware should not have many issues pushing the game's resolution higher while maintaining the same 60 FPS framerate, provided that the PC port is well optimized. 

As you can see in the graph below both the Nvidia GTX 980 and the AMD R9 Fury perform very well here, with AMD's R9 Fury getting a small lead. At Extra High settings both GPUs have difficulty maintaining a high framerate, with the GTX 980 achieving an average framerate of 35.577 and the AMD R9 Fury achieving an average framerate of 37.161, so lower settings will be required in order for both of these GPUs to fun this game at a steady 60FPS. 

Moving down to the game's High settings we see that both GPUs have their average framerates increase dramatically, with both GPU hitting the 60FPS framerate cap for a large portion of our benchmark. With AMD's R9 Fury GPU there was a single minor dip below 60FPS, but that was not noticeable during gameplay, though Nvidia's  GTX 980 had much more noticeable dips in performance. 

With light GPU overclock sit is though that both of these GPUs should be able to achieve a steady 60FPS Framerate of 60FPS at a resolution of 4K, which is simply fantastic for a newly released game which looks this good.

Nice article thanks. Good to know my Fury X will be good at 4k, too.

Shame about the 60 FPS cap but I'm on 60hz so it doesn't matter to me Quote

Seems to be extremely well optimized, Still need to finished Ground Zeros perfectly for the PP save import feature for the extras but it's good to know it will perform well

Shame you couldn't test a Fury X and 980 Ti at 4K Quote

Didn't need to, based off the 980/fury you would know they both would cap the 60fps limit basically 24/7
Very impressive for AMD considering this is a Gameworks title. They must have tried to get them on a more even playing field due to the apparent extensive optimizations they did.Quote

Not a Gameworks title bud, The only thing Nvidia about it is the splash screen at startup, Zero amounts of Gameworks going on Quote
