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 for 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.
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.
"Hitman is a third-person stealth video game in which players take control of Agent 47, a genetically enhanced, superhuman assassin, traveling to international locations and eliminating contracted targets. As in other games in the Hitman series, players are given a large amount of room for creativity in approaching their assassinations
Developed by IO Interactive and published by Square Enix, Hitman is our first DirectX 12 benchmark.
Hitman just isn't that demanding so we started testing at 2560x1440 (1440P) and you can rest assured that if the GTX 1080Ti runs Hitman at 1440p if you are running 1080p the card will blow the lower resolution away.
The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an open world action role-playing video game developed by CD Projekt RED. Announced in February 2013, it was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on 19 May 2015. The game is the third in the series, preceded by The Witcher and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, which are based on the series of fantasy novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.
Played in a third-person perspective, players control protagonist Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter known as a witcher, who sets out on a long journey through the Northern Kingdoms. In the game, players battle against the world's many dangers using swords and magic, while interacting with non-player characters and completing side quests and main missions to progress through the story. The game was met with critical acclaim and was a financial success, selling over 6 million copies in six weeks. The game won multiple Game of the Year awards from various gaming publications, critics, and game award shows, including the Golden Joystick Awards, The Game Awards, Game Developers Choice Awards, and SXSW Gaming Awards. Two expansion packs were released for the game: Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine.
Unigine Heaven 4.0
We went with our Asus Maximus IX Apex and 7700K at 4.8GHz with Corsair vengeance running at 3000MHz for Heaven 4.0, we also used this setup for OCing the Video card. All other testing was done with the 7800X at 4.8 GHz on our ASRock Killer SLI/AC setup.
Extreme performance and stability test for PC hardware: video card, power supply, cooling system. Check your rig in stock and overclocking modes with real-life load! Also includes interactive experience in a beautiful, detailed environment.
Temperatures, Noise & Power Consumption
The IceStorm cooling solution on the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 8GB AMP! EXTREME Edition was extremely effective and running Furry Doughnut on MSI Kombuster with the default fan profile got us 55oC with a mere 39% fan speed while the GPU load was 99% for 45 minutes. The IceStorm cooling solution is extremely effective and this card shouldn’t need water cooling to reach extreme overclocks.
Inside a chassis, the Corsair Carbide Spec-04 with tempered glass side we set the fan profile to 100% and registered a 36dBA from 1 Meter from the tempered glass side of the chassis. Open testbed we registered 41dBA from 1 Meter and we are completely satisfied with the sound results on the Zotac card. Using the default profile we couldn't get the noise to even register on out 30dBA minimum Decibel Meter.
