Dishonored 2 PC Performance Review
Published: 13th November 2016 | Source: OC3D | Price: |
Dishonored was a surprise success of 2013, shattering expectations by supplying gamers with both fantastic stealth gameplay while also allowing for players to go on a murderous rampage if they built their character correctly.
In Dishonored 2 gamers will be provided with more choice, whether they wish to play as Empress Emily Caldwin or the Royal Protector Corvo Attano, each of which will have their own unique set of abilities and playstyles. Beyond this, you will have the choice to play either as a Stealthy Assassin or cut your enemies down in a chaotic rampage.
Today is that day that we will give our complete look into Dishonored 2's PC performance, looking at the performance of both AMD and Nvidia GPUs covering several GPU generations.
Will Dishonored 2 perform well on PC, or will this game be a stain on Bethesda's reputation?
For this game, we will be using the newest drivers that were available when the game released, which is Nvidia's Game Ready Geforce 375.76 driver and AMD's 16.11.3 driver, both of which are the most recent GPU drivers for either company.
We will be testing this game on our dedicated GPU test rig using both high-end and mid-range GPUs from both AMD and Nvidia.
Game Test Rig
Intel i7 6850K
ASUS X99 Strix
G.Skill Ripjaws 4x4GB DDR4 3200MHz
Corsair H110i GT
Windows 10 x64
For the high-end, we will be testing AMD's R9 Fury X, the GTX 980Ti and Nvidia's new GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 GPUs.
For the Mid-range offerings, we will be testing the new RX 480 and GTX 1060, both of which will be the ASUS Strix Gaming models.
To represent AMD and Nvidia's lower-end GPU offerings we have decided to use the AMD R9 380 and the Nvidia GTX 960. Both of these GPUs will be the ASUS Strix models.
Both of these GPUs offer very similar performance in most scenarios and come in at very similar price points, so it will be very interesting to see which GPU will come out on top.
