Rise of the Tomb Raider PC performance retested with new AMD drivers

GTX 980 Ti VS R9 Fury X - 1440p Performance Retested

Rise of the Tomb Raider AMD Driver RetestGTX 980 Ti VS R9 Fury X - 1440p Performance Retested

 

At 1440p AMD and Nvidia are fighting tooth and nail for the top GPU position, with AMD's newest driver giving AMD a nice little bump in performance. Now at the highest settings the minimum framerates are indistinguishable between the GTX 980Ti and R9 Fury X, with the average framerates being very similar.  

At high settings and below AMD now have a decent lead when it comes to minimum framerate while at most settings the average framerates of both sides are almost identical.

Thanks for the timely review

Just a note. I had a crash earlier and after that the game was black screening, then crashing. The only workaround that got it going again was to disable Crossfire, play past that point and then enable it again.

It seems there is still work to do, either with the driver or the game itself.Quote

Seems like a small improvement but decent.

Now I just need nVidia to sort out there performance, but I also need to sort out my performance on the game as of today after, a reinstall of windows my frame rates have dropped to 15fps for the first minute of playing, then jumps to 30fps after that.

Downloading Unigine Valley at the moment to look at what that looks like, otherwise I have some stuff to work out tomorrow when I wake up.Quote

I'm getting FPS jumps too. Especially when the advice meter appears at the top of the screen. It seems to crawl when that's there, then goes back to normal once it's gone.

Still, at least my GPUs are scaling enough to make the game playable at 4k with max settings. I'd been waiting a very long time for this, so I'm very happy I can play it now.

I've reported my issues (and the FO4 one) directly to AMD so I'm now waiting on them. I guess it's kind of good news that they have a profile for Fallout 4, because it must mean the game engine will work with it and they could have that fixed before long.

And that would be nice, given that as soon as they launch the X2 it's going to live or die by support and performance in the latest games.Quote

My frame rate was rock stable at between 30fps to 60fps maxed out at 4K, yesterday but today after a fresh install of windows due to some issues I was having, with other software and audio stuff, the performance is a mess.

Got a video converting at the moment that has about 10 minutes left then gonna run Unigine Valley, if that shows issues then I will leave it till tomorrow and just watch some films tonight.Quote
