Sniper Elite 4 Performance Review

Graphical Options and Settings

Sniper Elite 4 comes with a wide range of graphical options on PC, including support for DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 game modes and even gives users the ability to enable or disable Asynchronous Compute.  

This is one of the first PC games to release with support for DirectX 12 on day one, which means that Rebellion developments have been working with DirectX 12 for some time, which could result in one of PC's best DirectX 12 game versions. 

Rebellion was one of the first Studios to support the AMD Mantle API, which offered huge performance gains in Sniper Elite 3, so many are hopeful that this will be the first DirectX 12 title that will take full advantage of the new API on both AMD and Nvidia hardware. 

Below is a screenshot showcasing the game's graphical options menu, which is both accessible inside and outside of the game, which is a great option for those that want to finely tune their graphical settings.

Great info dump. I'd be interested to see a set of results with the CPU massively downclocked with all setting levels in both DX11 and DX12 versus stock clocks.Quote

Pascal still being picky with Async I see. Better then worse half the time. I think going from dx11 to 12 without Async, those tiny performance gains probably come from only the CPU, even with Async again half the time it's like that too. Although it is rather interesting to see that you get the best improvements at lower resolution and you get less and less in return as you crank up the settings.Quote

Another good showing from the Fury X. The HBM is proudly displaying its wings with the higher resolutions. Vega and future HBM-equipped GPU's by Nvidia and AMD will be excellent for higher resolutions.Quote

Sorry to necro this one but I cannot find the benchmark anywhere in this game and was wondering if it was a separate bit of software.Quote

If I remember correctly this game has no built-in benchmark. You may be thinking of Sniper Elite 3, as it had one built-in.

I distinctly remember benchmarking gameplay for this one.Quote
