4k is still a long way to go for decent fps.

What is "decent" to you might not be the same for everyone else. Speak for yourself. I'm loving the 4K experience. I max all of my games at 4K and benchmark them, but if I need more FPS I'll simply turn down unnecessary settings like AA.

I really like the game Ryse: Son of Rome. It's one the most gorgeous games to date and the CryEngine is simply beautiful. At 4K 100% maxed settings I average 40.27fps with my Fury X. No screen tearing. I can enjoy a lot of my games at 4K actually. 1440p is not out of the question either. It depends on the title.

I know we all want the magic 60fps, and it isn't impossible if you lower some settings, but the 4K image quality is much better than 1080p, but not as much as a jump from 1080p to 1440p. Balance is all I need at the moment and so far it's great.

actually I want the magic 80-100+ fps, not 60 rolleyes.gif


but 40, damn

Ryse was kinda very cinematic/QTE game IIRC, so maybe 40 is fine there

but I would simply not play Witcher 3 or RotR (much less any MP game) @ 40 fps avg

Ryse does have live combat and some QTEs from time to time. It's optional during combat though. I find 40fps to be very playable. I think it's a great average for the HBM1 limitation [4GB]. Cool GPU temps as well. Remember that this is 100% MAX SETTINGS so of course I can easily go back and benchmark again with lower settings.

In the The Witcher 3 100% maxed, no Nvidia Gameworks, I average 36fps. Playable for me. Some of my favorite games of all time run around 30fps or less than 30fps [older console games] so the frame rate doesn't bother me at all. I'm sure if I disable some settings I can get much better framerate in The Witcher 3.

In Rise of the Tomb Raider I definitely had to disable some things. The biggest performance hit was Nvidia Gameworks HBAO+ when High Settings. With HBAO+ enabled I was getting around 26fps @4K. With HBAO+ Disabled and using the built in AO I had a decently large increase at 4K to 33fps. That's roughly a 27% increase of performance. I'm sure if I disabled other settings I can get better, but I played the game at 1440p. The game has some performance issues that are clearly not going to be addressed since no one is complaining enough and the company has already made their money. Still a great game though. I enjoyed it.

I played consoles during PS1/PS2 era too, but now Im so spoilt by PC gaming I turn up my nose at anything on PC that dips below 45-50

60+ solid is very desirable of course

to keep 100% above 60 at all times at fully maxed settings (even w/o AA) @ 1440p you pretty much need a 1080 tbh

with a 480 @ 1440p maxed you are going to get 30-40 fps in those games .. so either (1) drop down from Ultra to ~High or so or (2) go CF 480 .. or - (3) dont play the latest most demanding games smile.gif older games you should be able to max out on a 480 @ 1440p


HAHAHAHA! rolleyes.gif

Funny how 6 months ago reviewers claimed the 970&980 was quite adequate for 1440p gaming.
http://www.tweaktown.com/asktheexperts/215/upgrading-1440p-gaming-monitor-gpu-r9-390-gtx-970/index.html

All of a sudden with Pascal release,now you need a GTX1080?
False
This is the REALITY

http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/7722/nvidia-geforce-gtx-1070-titan-performance-under-400/index9.html

So, for newest games @ 1440p you need either a $650 GTX 1080 from Nvious.....
or a $200 RX 480 from AMD

You can throw all the spin you want on it but the fact is the RX480 will be a great card for 99% of users.

... Hitman, really ? redface.gif

thats on par with AMD showing off that Ashes CF result rolleyes.gif

I did specify Witcher 3, did I not ? the hottest most demanding SP game of 2015-2016 that also got new highly rated DLC just now rolleyes.gif


also when I said 1080 for 1440p I meant to ensure that your MINIMUM FPS is 60+ .. with 1080 @ 1440P Ultra settings your avg fps is going to 75-80+ or higher and minimum 60+ . .that is called rock solid thumb.gif

to get 55-60 avg in 1440p (in ALL games, not only Ashes or Hitman which is all AMD seems to be capable of playing rolleyes.gif ) a 980Ti/1070 is more then enough, even a 980 is ok if you can tone the settings down a bit

oh yeah, that 200$ 480 little trooper is going to slaughter all those games in 1440p, I can see it now

*.. I can see it struggling to make 40-45 avg fps in Blood and Wine biggrin.gif*
