Game Testing & Performance
Ashes of the Singularity
Planet by planet, a war is raging across the galaxy. The technological singularity has given humanity the power to expand further than they ever have before. Now, they compete with each other and their sentient artificial intelligence adversaries for control of newfound worlds.
We can see pretty quickly; Ashes of the Singularity is perfectly playable at any resolution with the Gaming X Trio even at an Extreme level of eye candy.
When compared to Similar cards, the Gaming X Trio does great, just edging out the competition at the 1440p level.
At 4K, it still trades blows with other 1080Ti based cards and does an impressive 86 FPS.
Dues Ex: Mankind Divided
The year is 2029, and mechanically augmented humans have now been deemed outcasts, living a life of complete and total segregation from the rest of society.
Now an experienced covert operative, Adam Jensen is forced to operate in a world that has grown to despise his kind. Armed with a new arsenal of state-of-the-art weapons and augmentations, he must choose the right approach, along with who to trust, in order to unravel a vast worldwide conspiracy.
This game can be quite brutal on a GPU once the eye candy level starts creeping up, but the Gaming X Trio can handle it. Even fully maxed out at 4K, the Trio still manages ~38 FPS on average.
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Rise of the Tomb Raider is an action-adventure video game developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix. It is the sequel to the 2013 video game Tomb Raider, a reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise. It was released on Xbox One and Xbox 360 in November 2015 and for Microsoft Windows in January 2016. It is set to release for PlayStation 4 in the second half of 2016.
Rise of the Tomb Raider was officially announced in June 2014. The game's storyline follows Lara Croft as she ventures into Siberia in search of the legendary city of Kitezh, whilst battling a paramilitary organization that intends on beating her to the city's promise of immortality. Presented from a third-person perspective, the game primarily focuses on survival and combat, while the player may also explore its landscape and various optional tombs. Camilla Luddington returns to voice and performs her role as Lara.
Upon release, Rise of the Tomb Raider received positive reviews, with critics praising its graphics, gameplay, and characterization. It was the best-selling Xbox One game during Christmas week and had sold over one million copies by the end of 2015. Additional content was also released, including a new story campaign, a new gameplay mode, as well as new outfits and weapons for Lara.
The Gaming X Trio maintaining solid frame rates in Rise of the Tomb Raider, even at a heavily loaded 4K resolution it is able to keep a 60Hz monitor pegged out most of the time.
Grand Theft Auto: V
"When a young street hustler, a retired bank robber, and a terrifying psychopath find themselves entangled with some of the most frightening and deranged elements of the criminal underworld, the U.S. government and the entertainment industry, they must pull off a series of dangerous heists to survive in a ruthless city in which they can trust nobody, least of all each other.
Grand Theft Auto V for PC offers players the option to explore the award-winning world of Los Santos and Blaine County in resolutions of up to 4k and beyond, as well as the chance to experience the game running at 60 frames per second."
Grand Theft Auto: V is the newest game in our benchmark suite. The game offers players a huge range of PC-specific customization options, including over 25 separate configurable settings for texture quality, shaders, tessellation, anti-aliasing and more. It has the highest recommended system requirements in our game benchmark suite.
Even at around 4 years old, Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto: V is still a monster capable of making lesser PC’s cower in fear. With very high settings, the rest of the system bottlenecks the GPU, and keep in mind this is a very capable system, but even at 4K on very high settings we still see an average north of the 60 FPS mark.
