Metal Gear Solid 5 AMD vs Nvidia Performance Review with ASUS

1080p Gaming with ASUS GTX 960 and R9 380

Nvidia Metal Gear Solid V Game Ready Drivers Released

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.

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
