    The benchmark was made to show the CPU overhead of API's so yes it's made for that reason, to compare API's.

    English is not my primary language, so I can't make it clear enough to you. What I meant to say is, when I made that post, I meant to compare scores of the same API (DirectX 11) and not DirectX 12. There's no point in comparing AMD's DirectX 12 scores against nvidia's DirectX 11 scores, as the comparison is invalid. He could have pointed out that it's likely a typo?

    Look at red and orange scores. They are DX11. Both AMD and NVIDIA.

    And nvidia scores higher in that department, which is what I have said? Even with the improved CPU overhead drivers, AMD trails behind nvidia in CPU overhead tests in DX11, or am I wrong?

    The original discussion started when you compared DX11 to DX12. You already said it was a typo after I posted the charts. Lets forget it :)

    No, you are right. But seems for the future, atleast according to that test, AMD will be better than Nvidia at DX12.
    And seeing kepler performance in w3 and now perhaps Batman, it seems AMD could be a safer choice. Will wait for win 10 and dx12 beeing standard in games before choosing a new GFX

    Seem to be way over 100ms+.... Wonder what settings and setup that is.
    Difficult to judge when we know so little..

    Exactly, you are supposed to take a mind picture of the beauty of the game. You know since it would be hard to take still pictures while moving, so the game stops just for you to take a picture with your eyes, ain't that nice? :D

    Yes, and I am still sleepy. I guess fasting and working and multitasking on the forums is not easy. I am getting Batman, but it seems that the game is broken from the Dev's side, regardless of what hardware you are using.

    It's a new type of gameplay. You have to predict 5 seconds in advance. Predict the buttons press them and hope for the best.

    Yeah, stupid AMD sucks, I love my 10 fps with the almighty Gameworks.

    I can't even play this game because my laptop is weak but it really makes me mad when I see people here whining and saying oh I'm getting a 970. It's not just childish behavior, it's condoning Nvidia's shameful business practice.

    Here's a benchmark with a 970, 1080p, avg fps just above 40

    To be honest that just looks like a piss poor attempt at optimization. The day one patch could have broke it too?

    Rocksteady signed a deal with Nvidia to optimize their game for Nvidia cards and to ban AMD from even seeing the game code before the game comes out. This means that Nvidia has been working with Rocksteady for months. They have no justification, the game should be optimized perfectly for Nvidia. Just imagine if AMD worked for months with the developer and this happened, this subforum would be swarming with 'I'm going with Nvidia' messages.

    For example
    ''980 + 4690K Tried to play about ingame fully maxed out. The stuttering renders it unplayable. I have it capped to 60 and it just drops to 35-45fps too randomly and shoots back to 60.''

    Yeah that looks really bad for AMD or NVIDIA.

    The games still new for all the complaints to come flooding in here. I wonder how it performs on consoles.

    I'm watching a walkthrough on youtube that's on PS4, it looks very good with minimal lag on occassion. I'd say it performs very well.

    PS4 performance is solid at 1080p 30, a drop or two to 27 fps during heavy explosions or smashing things with bat-mobile.
