I don't understand why sites benchmark such outdated games that don't push the card.


They should be using games like below for benchmarks.
MGSV
Witcher 3
Batman Arkham Knight
Dragon Age Inquisition
Dying Light
Just Cause 3
post #13 of 21
Crysis 3
Witcher 3
GTA V
Battlefield 4
Metro Last Light Redux
Farcry 4
Shadow of Mordor

would be more appealing to me.

Can answer three of your questions and add one more games results.

Fury 1100 MHz Core 4790K @ 4.6 GHz running 2560x1440 ISP

Crimson 16.1

Shados Of Mordor - Ultra - Min 61 Max 115 Avg 84

Crimson 15.12

Far Cry 4 - Ultra - Min 49 Max 128 Avg 104
Crysis 3 - Very High - Min 44 Max 94 Avg 58

Star Wars BF - Ultra - Field of View 100% - "Walker Assult (40player)" - Min 82 Max 127 Avg 105

One nitro fury can take on 1440p without having to worry about falling under 40 FPS freesync range.

Nope nothing like what happened at 290X launch.

I saw that too, it's a shame really. I presume it's to have some form of consistency with their previous benchmarks providing they take them into account.

From what I saw on the Benchmark Configuration page they tested the GTX 970 with the 347.09 driver which released in December 2014, that's a super old driver, I presume they didn't test the card again recently. The GTX 980 Classified was tested with the 344.60 driver from November 2014. And they also tested 290X with the 14.4 driver which is also an old driver from 2014.

The R9 Fury they tested is also running an older driver, the the 15.8 driver to be exact. The current latest driver is the 16.1 "Crimson hot fix" driver.
It seems to me that they test their cards intentionally with the launch drivers, or drivers which were released close to the launch of the cards.

Benchmarks can be extremely time consuming and can also be quite costly to acquire the products to review. I'm not sure how they obtained the cards to review, whether they purchased them or received them to review as that sometimes happens.

However the other cards in this benchmark are seemingly based on old data which may or may not be relevant today in terms of the driver updates which have been pushed out for the cards over time, these driver updates can lead to performance increases. But they are also not testing the latest games so this may not be too big of a deal.

It would be nice to see them update their benchmarks with some of the newer releases, Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider and Metro Last Light are the latest games which they tested.

Is this like an easter joke with the choice of games for a 2016 review ?

I see a strange thing, we get more and more reviews of Fury/R9 390 cards now,even though they've all been reviewed already months ago. Sometimes we see the same site reviewing a card they already did review months ago,sometimes with different temperatures and power draw than in the early review: like 970s almost equal in power draw to 390s. A review entirely based on 2010-13 game?. This smells.

There you have it.

The image above shows the Sapphire Nitro R9 Fury OC remains relatively cool, thanks to the backplate. Load temperatures rise to give a reading of 65.4C under extended conditions. The backplate helps stop the build up of hot spots on the PCB, exactly what we want to see.
