    Nice article HH.

    So this is a second game that we see this mix up performance. 280X fast as 780, 290X faster 780ti. And that poor 680/770 left behind. Whats happening with kepler cards and their drivers? Did they do that on purpose, lol?

    I agree. I haven't had this much fun in quite a while. Thanks for the article.

    I'm surprised to see that Mantle actually is slower than dx11, at least at the moment. But also, 980SLI for 60fps at 1440p? Wow :D

    I believe, when you write 14.9, it is the 14.11.2 driver no ?

    Huum, maybe due to the cpu used, i remember that some other benchmark was show different result for it...

    Funny i download the game at this moment...

    Is there any clue as to if Split-Frame Rendering (SFR) was used for multiple GPUs instead of the standard Alternate-Frame Rendering (AFR)?

    This was the case with Civilization: Beyond Earth and even though SFR didn't scale FPS as well as AFR, it did provide a noticeably lower latency which translated to smoother and more responsive game play.

    The mantle graph says MB instead of FPS. Very nice review.

    I have the exact opposite experience with Mantle. Mantle results in more fps and very smooth experience compared to DX11.

    Strange, i also thought the results weird. I'll test D11 on my rig tonight.

    Wait what? GTX 970 on full HD Ultra quality only 50 fps?

    I don't get it. What's going on with the games these days? I just ordered a GTX 970 and I'm already disappointed, this is quite a high-end card. My 560 ran Deus Ex Human Revolution on 60 fps. And that was a 250-dollar card. I bought this rig exactly when DXHR came out. I was expecting at least 70 fps from current games on Full HD from cards around 970 performance. The 970 also barely runs AC:Unity at 40 fps.

    Seriously do I have mental issues or games are starting to trash single-card setups?

    Bad coding and bad optimization that all, lower some settings will gain u good fps. most games have settings that take fps and do barely anything.

    2005-2006 era is gone, where high end GTX could reach 100fps at all games maxed out even the most demanding, i recon the money we pay for all gpus is overpriced way overpriced.

    Very enjoyable game! And the amount of content is staggering, one of the better titles of this year for sure. Did I mention the near bugless state of the game? :D

    Good look at the game, too, HH...especially from one whose cup of tea is not RPGs, apparently...;) I prefer this kind of game to anything else, actually. But really well-made, involving RPGs unfortunately come along only every few years or so, and when one is released it is usually to a lot of pent-up demand, as you noticed in the game reviews you've seen.

    Hell yeah, I agree. I remember when I got my 6600GT, boy did that card absolutely destroy games for the 200-dollar price tag.

    Yep i remmeber my first good ati card, Radeon 9550 it was the era where nvidia failed hard with FX(3DFX ex employes created the FX series to avenge nvidia :D), card cost me nothing and played FEAR at medium settings some at high with good fps, even with junk pentium 4 1.7ghz.

    7600GT was awesome as well, ate fear like nothing and all other games.

    Other than card being overpriced, or more accurate games are not optimized at all, most of them. consoles play big part at that.
