Dishonored 2 PC Performance Review
Published: 13th November 2016 | Source: OC3D | Price: |
At 1080p only our GTX 1080 Founders Edition is able to play this game at a steady 60FPS, though even then this is without minor dips. Moving down to lower end hardware we can quickly see that Dishonored's Ultra settings are not designed for today's hardware, especially if gamers want to crank the game's resolution up to 1440p or higher.
We can see here that the R9 Fury X is barely able to beat the RX 480, showing that this game does struggle to play with older AMD hardware. Hopefully, Bethesda can increase their performance on older AMD hardware soon, as an R9 Fury X should easily outperform an RX 480.
On the Nvidia side, we can see a noteworthy decrease in performance when moving from the GTX 1070 to the GTX 980Ti, with a 5FPS decrease in minimum framerate and an 8FPS decrease in average framerate. The GTX 980Ti still handily beats the GTX 1060 Strix and the RX Fury X, with Nvidia having a clear performance advantage in this title overall.
