Sniper Elite 4 Performance Review

1080p Performance

Below we have tested each of these GPUs in both DirectX 11 modes and DirectX 12, with GCN, Pascal and Ploris GPUs running with Async Compute turned on for maximum performance. Alternatively, Nvidia Maxwell powered GPUs are run in DirectX 12 mode without Async Compute for optimal performance.  

In our 1080p testing, we can see that all GPUs tested do benefit from playing the game with the DirectX 12 API, though we can see that for the most part, that Nvidia offers the best GPU performance at this resolution. The only exception here is with the R9 380 and the GTX 960, with the R9 380 gaining a significant amount of performance when using the DirectX 12 API with Async Compute. 

Below we can also see that the GTX 1060 and above can achieve framerates of steady 60FPS or over, though the RX 480 can achieve a steady 60FPS with only a minor decrease in 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
