Gaming Benchmarks Continued
Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is a third-person tactical shooter game. You play as a member of the Delta Company, First Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group, also known as “Ghosts”, a fictional elite special operations unit of the United States Army under the Joint Special Operations Command. This game takes place in a modern-day setting and is the first in the Ghost Recon series to feature an open world with 9 different types of terrain. The benchmark was run at the beginning of the first mission in the game.
Being an Ubisoft game, Ghost Recon: Wildlands is not only a beautiful game, but rather intensive. In 1080p on max settings, the reference 5700 XT did best with an average of 73 FPS. Next was the Vega 2 with an average of 69 and out Pulse with an average of 68 FPS. Last again was the 5700 with an average of 64 fps. The reference 5700 XT did best in 1440p with an average of 58. The Pulse 5700 XT was right behind the reference 5700 XT with an average of 57 fps. Next was the Vega 2 with 56 fps followed by the 5700 with an average of 51 FPS. In 4k resolution, the Vega 2 did best with an average of 38 fps. The reference 5700 XT and the Pulse 5700 XT tied for second with an average of 36 fps. Last again was the 5700 with an average of 32 FPS.
The Tomb Raider series never ceases to amaze me with its stunning graphics and excellent game play. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is set to be the third and final game of the rebooted trilogy developed by Eidos Montréal in conjunction with Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, you continue your journey as Lara Croft as she attempts to finish the life work of her father. Her in a journey that takes her from Central America to the hidden city of Paititi as she attempts to stop Trinity in their attempt to gain power. Section benchmarked was near the beginning of the first section that takes place in the hidden city. This was compared to the in-game benchmark which seems to be an accurate representation of the game play.
In 1080p, the Pulse 5700 XT did best with an average of 120 FPS. The Vega 2 and the reference 5700 XT tied with 119 FPS and the 5700 averaged 106 fps in 1080p. The Vega 2 did best in 1440p with an average of 84 fps. Next was the Pulse 5700 XT with an average of 79 followed by the reference 5700 XT with an average of 78 and the 5700 with an average of 71 fps. In 4k, the Vega 2 did best with an average of 45 fps. The Vega 2 seems to do better on higher resolutions. The Pulse 5700 XT was next with an average of 41 fps followed by the reference 5700 XT with an average of 40 fps and the 5700 with an average fps of 36 in 4k.

It is the sequel to the very successful Shadow of Mordor that released in 2014 and is based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s legendarium.

The Witcher 3 is an action role-playing game developed and published by CD Projekt. Based on The Witcher series of fantasy novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. This is the third game in the Witcher series to date and the best so far. You play as Geralt of Rivia on his quest to save his adopted daughter from the Wild Hunt. At its release in 2015, The Witcher 3 has some of the most beautiful graphics ever seen in a game, as well as some of the most demanding. Even today, almost 4 years later, the Witcher 3 still holds up very well and brings even the most powerful systems to their knees. The game was benchmarked during the hunt for and battle with the Griffin near the start of the main story.
