Fallout 4 - AMD vs Nvidia Performance Review



Let's have a look at Fallout 4's performance with AMD's R9 Fury X and Nvidia's GTX 980Ti. Is Godrays the new HairWorks?

Hi

I installed the Nvidia update and went with the recommended settings which were "Ultra" on my GTX 980. I really appreciate your article and photos. I got a couple hours into the game and at 1440P on Ultra it was very smooth for me.

I really am going to go in and make the changes to low quality and turn god rays off eventually. Right now i wish I had a vacation day available to actually play today

Loving it so far

awesome review Mark, lots of info to read up on for those who are not yet playing the game.

it would be awesome if you could add in sli/crossfire scaling for people still rocking older hardware and maybe if you got time to add in i5 vs i7?

only if you got time

Am I the only one who's not seeing the article/and link in the OP?

Nice write up WYP, although it would be interesting to see some i5 vs i7 comparisons. Someone in a different thread reported a website benchmarking both and there were big differences between them.

It's not there, I've added something to the OP.

I'm finding the performance to be pretty good thus far. I'm getting a steady 60fps pretty much everywhere, with the very occasional drop into the 40's kind of like the way Skyrim was.

That's at 1080p with an i7-6700k and GTX 780 where neither are overclocked.

I was just had a little play and I was hitting 80-95fps @ 1440 ultra only with the AA n all that rubbish off, using i7 4970k @4.5 and 980ti classy @ stock
It the first time i have played FO4, or any fallout actually but i quite like it, even though I'm not one for those type of games

Nice write up Mark. Really informative thanks and I especially liked the comparisons on the God rays on/off. For a relatively small graphical advantage it seems to be a big hit on the performance.

I'm not sure what percentage of gamers have refresh rates higher than 60hz. I agree it would be annoying to shell out for a 120/144/165hz beast and be locked at 60 but I imagine the devs are trying to cater for the most mainstream setups.

I'm actually pleased that the game is playable on single (admittedly top end) cards up to 1440p on release.
