I'm in the process of considering games for a 2014 update.
Downside is that I do this article in my spare time aside from my usual, so ideally I need benchmarks I can batch up to run four times and get numbers from. Sitting their with FRAPs for a minute, then x4 for multiple runs, x4-6 for GPU configs, x25+ for different CPUs, is not my idea of having fun.
Each CPU can take a couple of days to test, even more in 4-6 GPU configs, so there's that.
Options for 2014 update are:
F1 2013 (just released today in UK, benchmark looks ok: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hh-i8zoDcAk
Company of Heroes 2
Rome 2? (Still working on how to batch it)
GRID 2 (perhaps, uses same engine as F1 2013 though)
There's also the question of staying at 1440p. Some people are requesting I move down to 1080p, although that means the 4-way GPU setups will be fighting over 200 to 300 FPS, which seems a bit silly.
2014 should have an NVIDIA GPU update, hoping to get hold of 760s or up for it, for 1x/2x/3x/4x. One of my AMD GPUs needs RMA to go 4-way on that. Obviously moving to a 2014 update moves the drivers too.
So questions are:What Resolution?What Games?
(ones I can batch preferably)What GPUs would be suitable?
Any input is greatly appreciated. Given some of the feedback, I might push my AMD update into the 2014 results, making them first, rather than running the current lot of tests on the 2013 suite.
