Fallout 4

Publisher: Bethesda Softworks

Our Fallout 4 benchmark is a 30-second FRAPS recording of a manual playthrough, where our character runs forward through a woodland area just outside the Corvega Automation Plant. The scene is very challenging relative to the rest of the game, with massive draw distances and complex volumetric lighting. This means the results below are not representative of typical gameplay, but rather of the most challenging points in the game. We test at the game's 'Ultra' preset, the highest available, and v-sync is disabled in the game's .ini file.

Total War: Warhammer

Publisher: Sega

For this game, we use a custom-made benchmark that shows a heavily populated battle between the Empire and the Greenskins. In the interest of full disclosure, this benchmark was supplied by AMD. This is a DirectX 12 test, and since FRAPS does not currently work with this benchmark we rely on its built-in reporting, which still give us an average and minimum frame rate. We test with the 'Ultra' preset, the highest available.
