Middle Earth: Shadow of War PC Performance Review

1080p Benchmarks  

When benchmarking Middle Earth: Shadow of War we decided to use the game's Very High graphical preset, which offers a decent balance between in-game performance and graphical quality while also avoiding any issues with the game's Ultra Textures on lower-end GPUs.   

Starting off with some of the lower-end GPUs in our test lineup, the R9 380 Strix and the GTX 960 Strix, we can see that neither GPU is capable of playing this game at a steady 30+ FPS at these settings. Those that want a higher/more stable framerate will need to lower the game's graphical quality settings or resolution scale, though at medium presets the game will sit mostly between 45-60 FPS with either of these GPUs. 

At Very High settings the only two GPUs to maintain a solid 60FPS are the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080, with AMD's R9 Fury X struggling at this resolution to surpass even Nvidia's GTX 1060. Moving down to the game's high preset will see almost all of these GPUs maintain a solid 60FPS at 1080p (aside from the R9 380 and GTX 960 mentioned above).

In regards to Vega, apparently it performs far better than Nvidia. A 64 is far ahead if the 1080 and the 56 is slightly above it. At least according to a different review.

It is good to see though that this is not another crappy black boxed Nvidia TWIMTBP title. Having agnostic results and being GPU limited is how it should be.
Nice review and thanks for taking the time. Since the DRM slowed you down a bit.Quote

Where do you see that? I only saw Vega win in Forza which makes sense since Microsoft had that game optimized for AMD specific hardware (Thanks Xbox).

Not sure if that one game equates to GPU competition or the VEGA performing "FAR BETTER THAN NVIDIA".Quote
