    Optimizations for IC? Interesting.

    To get any kind of interest back into this franchise i need a fresh original start, with way more storytelling.

    Back in 90s/early 2000s the Tomb Raider games were just that, they gave you just a minimalist story telling to give you a purpose for the current actions you're expected to perform, and Hitman to this day seems to stick to this.
    Modern Tomb Raider games you have partners (Jonah Maiava + NPCs you meet along the way), you have a deep Background story often revisited in flash-back, you have freedom of movement for a good part of the game...

    I want them to dive deep into the creation of the lore and world of the Assassins, with meaningful interactions.
    Put me in a John Wick assassin universe, with a lore, with charismatic characters i'll build a relationship with over time, engage with.

    Charts have been updated based on Adrenalin 21.1.1 drivers.

    Nice boost on the new driver.

    edit: @Hilbert Hagedoorn where is the CPU thread thingy? Maybe im just blind but cant find it lol

    edit2: Oh ok im dumb, its in the frame time graph. I was looking for the core scaling...

    6800 = 3080 . Nice . That raster perf is what i like . Glad i went with AMD this season :)

    I recently upgraded my 10 year old Dell U2711 1440 monitor to an ASUS PG35VQ Ultrawide, please can you also test at 3440 x 1440? The PG35VQ is an incredible screen btw, played my first HDR game yesterday, Far Cry 5 looked amazing

    Can't say I enjoyed Hitman 2 but luckily bought at deep discount in a Steam sale. I found the gameplay very dull. This new un might look pretty but silly price, I'm usually 1-2 years behind with games as I choose not to participate in price gouging

    Man, for some titles AMD can rock. The 590 performs almost like a 1070 here.

    its just like 20-30% slower than normal 1440p, I've applied a -25% offset as I check the 1440 benches and it lines up almost perfectly with my own

    btw adding a whole resolution to test with this number of GPUs is a colossal amount of work, few reviewers do what HH does, even including RX470

    LOL, I think I saw Hilbert include a NVidia 580 in one review, stopped using one (I should say 3) of those in 2013! Those great days of SLI & TRI. Some might say, others not of course, that 1080 is less relevant nowadays when compared to 3440? If your gaming benefits from the highest FPS possible then 1080 still valid but Hilbert regularly tells us not to bother with newest top cards with 1080. Here are 3440 FPS results for the FE 3080:

    Depends massively on demographics. User data of Guru3D visitors, out of the past three months show in resolution:

    Ranking resolutions:

    1: 1920x1080
    2: 2560x1440
    3: 1280x1024

    18: 3440x1440 (1.39% of the visitors)
    43: 3840x2160 (0.38% of the visitors)

    Ehm, I think you grossly overestimate the significance of 3440x1440, and 1080p is not less relevant at all. The reason I don't test 3440x1440 is that I need to draw a line somewhere in reviews due to time. Every and any user will have a request that personally suits him or her circumstances the best. That's understandable, but for 3440x1440 would mean switching monitors all the time, rebooting, launching game .. etc it eats away so much more time.

    And this is one of the reasons why the gaming industry is not innovating as it could and should. Release a DLC of a 2016 game with few bugs and people is like "yes please take my money" (and this could apply to all the copy/paste games like Assassin's creed or fifa too); try and release a new IP, refreshing and with a massive beautiful open world with some bugs in the first month after release (cp2077?) and people creates a shitstorm about it beacause it's good but not as good as they dreamt.

    Why would they do that when they can keep the same game of 2016, add some maps and put a full price on it? The only way to force them into something new is stop buying DLCs for more than, let's say, 20€$. They don't even bother improving graphics (and you can see that from the performance benchmarks, same numbers as 2016). Same mechanics, same graphics, almost no story. Just some new assets put in their good level editor in just SIX levels, but you can kill the same dumb target in 10 ways so they are 6*10=60 levels, yeah right...

    Always nice to see when a techsite updates outdated charts after a new driver release. Something that simply isn't possible in Youtube videos.

    More often than not Guru3d reviews are spot on with the experience you will get with said component /game /software.
    His 2080 ti is right on the money :D

    Ha ha, I've been on this site for nearly 10 years M8 so I don't misunderstand the continued popularity of 1080. Other tech sites only reinforce what you are saying. It is also clear (from this website & others) that comparatively few game at 2560 x 1440 some 10 years after I bought my Dell U2711. I paid nearly £900 for it 10 years ago but of course I needed it for my work LOL and therefore was able to reclaim the VAT & capital business allowance but it was still a very expensive purchase.
    And as you often remind us, the more demanding your monitor the more expensive a graphics card is if you want better FPS. And the continued popularity of 1080 is also presumably tied into use with very high refresh 1080 monitor use?
    And yes, I'm aware that you put a lot of hard work into testing graphics cards for us, thank you. And probably it's the new generation of graphics cards that most of us await with the most interest, certainly is for me and they create the largest number of comments.

    Wow, AMD really kicks ass. TBH this is what I hoped to see in every game when the 6000 series were released, unfortunately that was not the case.

    It feels special to be among the 1.39% of all visitors :>

    lol -> 43: 3840x2160 (0.38% of the visitors) i didn't even know there was 43 res's. Plus 5k and 8k makes 45.
