Rise of the Tomb Raider - AMD VS Nvidia Performance Review

GTX 980 Ti VS R9 Fury X - 4K

 

At 4K this game is particularly hard to run, with both sides barely being able to get their average framerates above 60FPS at even the games lowest settings. 

As has been the trend with both 1080p and 1440p AMD performs much better at the games lower settings but struggles against Nvidia when the settings are cranked all the way up to Very High or Higher, though neither side is remotely playable at these settings. 

To play this game with a high framerate at 4K you need more power than any single GPU today can deliver, but with reports of unstable Multi-GPU support flying all around the internet and being unable to test SLI or Crossfire with the hardware I have to hand I can only say that this game is not going to deliver a great experience at 4K, at least of you want a stable 60FPS.

Nice article though I'm now sad knowing my poor old gpu will probably die if I turn the setting right upQuote

An interesting set of results, nice to know at 1440p my 980Ti will do really well! Hopefully itll scale really well in SLI!Quote

Nice write up Mark. What genuinely surprises me is the difference in visual quality at each setting. More games recently seem to have little or no discernible difference once you get to the higher quality levels.Quote

And does the opposite with a 970 lol. I'll stop this game until I have a better card... Pascal...

I'll read it shortly, cheers Mark!Quote
