Tomb Raider & ACS with a GTX 1080

Tomb Raider & ACS with a GTX 1080

Here is another batch of GTX 1080 videos with this time Rise of the Tomb Raider and Assassin's Creed: Syndicate. As you'll see, maxing out these games does not always guarantee a steady framerate, especially when you start to go above 1080p. If you don't mind a few drops here and there, you can enjoy Lara's latest adventure at 1440p, but the rise in resolution (or video settings) is much more impactful on Ubisoft's title. Again, it means you will have to choose between image fidelity or resolution if what you care the most (and you should) is framerate.
Note: The settings at the beginning of the first TR video are maxed out at 1440p with SMAA. The settings at the beginning of the second are the same as those at the end of the first.

RotTR - GTX 1080 - Geothermal Valley
RotTR - GTX 1080 - Soviet Installation
RofTR - Benchmark - 1080p/SSAA2x
ACS - GTX 1080

I thought you were gonna show a fps counter aswell.. I know how the game looks at ultra settings.. It doesn't look any different with my 980Ti.. Obviously.. :P

Edit: I see you used one in ACS.. Nice, shame though your monitor only does 60Hz and you run with sync on.. :P

There is also one in RofTR. :p

If I don't use vsync I'll get crazy tearing and you'll start whining even more. ;)

Pre-ordered my MSI non-ref GTX1070

TBH, It seems the GTX 10 series cards can easily beat most of the 3A games with 1080p resolution & Ultra settings, which means that quite a lot have the lowest fps over 60 and almost all of them are above 30fps when @1080p

Also, if you can, to add a fps analysis over the video, that'll make these demonstrations more clear :)

Framerate would be very much appreciated in such video. Along with detailed information on what settings and resolution was used. I am curious if ACS can achieve stable 1080p60 with everything maxed on a 1080.

There is framerate! As for settings and resolution, just watch, it's all in there.

Neh, that 980ti of yours is overclocked just as fast as a 1080.

    MrWhite that's a pretty big deal, as its probably the biggest stumbling block for the tech. (34 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Stuff like inside out tracking and eye tracking, as well as motion sickness solutions should be in place. We've already got a product in development that claims to have eradicated that already (35 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The potential of it is massive. More so than what traditional gaming now is. Second gen is going to be very interesting. (36 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite We're sort of being spoon fed bit sized "experiences" that either work or don't. I suppose that's part of the freshness of it, though. I just wish some big devs would get more involved. (37 minutes ago)

    MrWhite @KORNdog: Ironically, though, the VR scene is also playing it safe. Too safe. There's not enough big risk titles like RE7. (38 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX I can't really wrap my head around being dismissive of indie games. That's a pretty broad label. (3 Hours ago)
