Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is our second DirectX 12 title. We test using the Ultra preset, and at these settings it is still one of the toughest games to run smoothly, presenting a challenge for even flagship graphics cards. We run the built-in benchmark (hidden in the Extras menu), as it is very consistent and makes full use of the engine's features. We also rely on the game's own frame rate counter since FRAPS does not work with this game when using DirectX 12. We've actually found that your experience in-game will typically be with frame rates a little higher than the average frame rate from the benchmark, but even so it's the minimum frame rate that we focus on and that you should really take into consideration, because it's in the most challenging parts of the game that you'll really feel the slowdowns, and it's no good having a sub-par experience in the heat of battle.
