1440p Benchmarks - Is this GRID's performance sweet spot? 

1440p is often called the sweet spot resolution, and for good reason. More often than not, the performance cap between 1080p and 1440p gaming isn't as large as the resolution gap implies. A resolution of 1440p has 80% more total pixels than 1080p, but the performance cap is often much lower than that. 

At 1440p, our Powercolor RX 5700XT offers an average framerate of 90.4 FPS. At 1080p the same graphics card averages at 114 FPS. This represents a performance drop of less than 21% for an 80% increase in pixel count. Clearly, there is more to PC framerates than mere pixels, and GRID (2019) showcases this.

Aside from our RX 580 and GTX 1060 graphics cards, most of the GPUs we tested are well suited for 1440p GRID gameplay at 60+FPS framerates during standard daytime races. Move the game down to high, and most of these cards will be able to achieve the same thing in the rain. 

For 1440p gameplay, Nvidia's RTX 2060 and AMD's RX 5700 are ideal graphics cards, offering solid 60+ FPS performance at Ultra in standard races and 50+ FPS framerates in demanding rainy races. Turn the game down to high and you can expect 60+ FPS framerates at all times.

Was interesting to see the 5700xt so close to the 2070S and with a nicer imageQuote

With dx11 my vega is 9% faster. However with dx12, i can use radeon image sharpening.
Dx11 is also better with my GTX980. I am waiting for a Sli profile.

The game looks ok but Forza 7 or Forza horizon 4, destroy GRID in term of visual quality and performanceQuote

Feels bad to give rather harsh critique to people whose word I take as canon in other hardware like cases, but these performance comparison videos don't convey much information even if you overlay the FPS of each benchmark run.


There should be more, even if it's just fraps bench viewer (link) graph, FCAT being the gold standard, but when DigitalOcean gives pretty deep analysis of where the GPUs fare well or badly compared to their competition, there's not much these offer over their analysis. And I understand the massive amount of work involved in that, but at the moment this looks like a whole lot of extra work for content which others do better.Quote

What I'll say here is that you can't expect anyone that's starting something new to come out with AAA-class content immediately. It takes time to learn things and as we learn more things will get better.

If you can, please PM me some links to this DigitalOcean. I've never heard of them and would like to see what they can do. Googling them isn't showing me anything outside of web hosting services.Quote
