1080p Gaming with ASUS GTX 960 and R9 380
At 1080p this game was a breeze to run with today's high end GPUs, so we decided to take out a few of today's mid-range GPUs to see if they would be able to max out this title at 1080p.
It seems that Kojima productions designed the PC version of this game with modern hardware in mind, with the urrent generation of mid-range GPUs being designed to run this game at 1080p 60FPS, leaving more beefy GPUs with higher resolutions like 4K and 1440p in mind.
When maxing out this game at 1080p both our GTX 960 and out R9 380 provide us with an almost constant 60FPS framerate, though a few drops happen occasionally. This could be counteracted with a little bit of GPU overclocking, leaving you with a constant 60FPS Framerate or you can lover your settings to high for a constant 60FPS experience.
Looking at both our 1080p and 4K results we can plainly see that Metal Gear Solid V is not a pain to run and provides very similar performance on both AMD and Nvidia GPUs. Being a Gameworks title we expected this game to heavily favor Nvidia, but this is simply not the case. It looks like Nvidia finally have a GameWorks title which has no controversy surrounding it.
