1080p Testing with the GTX 960 and R9 380
When looking at the graph below it is hard not to be surprised by these results. The R9 380 and the GTX 960 are both GPUs that are mid-range, both often costing under £200 to buy new.
When buying a mid range GPU you do not expect to be able to play a new AAA game at maximum settings with an average of over 60FPS at the games highest graphical presets.
In Overwatch both AMD's R9 380 and Nvidia's GTX 960 perform very similarly, though AMD does take the advantage when being played at high settings. This is where SMAA is first applied to the game.
What may be most staggering is that a mid-range GPU can be used to play this new game at an average framerate of over 100FPS when at high settings, which is great for framerate junkies.
