Gaming Performance (part 1)

Battlefield 4

Battlefield 4 is one of the most popular games of the Battlefield franchise, being released in 2013. It is based on the Frostbite 3 engine, which is DirectX 11. In order to measure performance using this game, we walked our way through the first mission, measuring the number of frames per second (fps) three times using FRAPS. We ran this game at Full HD, setting overall image quality at “ultra.”

The results below are expressed in fps and they are the mean between the three collected results.

GeForce GTX 1060 6 GiB benchmark

On Battlefield 4, the GeForce GTX 1060 6 GiB FE was 20% faster than the GeForce GTX 970 and 15% faster than the Radeon R9 390.

Dirt Rally

Dirt Rally is an off-road racing game released in April 2015, using Ego engine. To measure performance using this game, we ran the performance test included in the game, in Full HD resolution and image quality configured as “ultra” and MSAA 2x.

The results below are expressed in fps.

In this game, the GeForce GTX 1060 6 GiB FE performed similarly to the GeForce GTX 970, and was 4% faster than the Radeon R9 390.

Doom

Doom is a horror/sci-fi/first person shooter game launched in may 2016, that uses the id Tech 6 engine. We tested the video card performance in this game using the OpenGL API option, with the quality option as “high”, FXAA on, and Full HD resolution, measuring three times the frame rate using FRAPS.

The results below are expressed in fps and they are the mean between the three collected results.

Dying Light Dying Light is an open-world horror game launched in January 2015, using the Chrome Engine 6. We tested the performance at this game with all quality options as “high” and Full HD resolution, measuring three times the frame rate using FRAPS. The results below are expressed in fps and they are the mean between the three collected results. On Dying Light the GeForce GTX 960 was 6% faster than the Radeon R9 380.

On Doom the GeForce GTX 1060 6 GiB FE was 15% faster than the GeForce GTX 970, and had a similar performance to the Radeon R9 390.

We ran GTA V at Full HD, with image quality set as “very high” and MSAA as 2x.

The results below are expressed in frames per second.

GeForce GTX 1060 6 GiB benchmark

On GTA V, the GeForce GTX 1060 6 GiB FE was 15% faster than the GeForce GTX 970 and 24% faster than the Radeon R9 390.

Hitman

Hitman is a stealth/action game launched in march of 2015, using the Glacier 2 engine, which is compatible with DirectX 12. In order to measure the performance using this game, we ran its performance test, measuring the framerate with FRAPS three times. We ran the game at Full HD, DirectX 12 enabled, and with image quality set as “ultra”.

The results below are expressed in fps and they are the mean between the three collected results.

GeForce GTX 1060 6 GiB benchmark

On Hitman, the GeForce GTX 1060 6 GiB FE was 23% faster than the GeForce GTX 970 and 4% slower than the Radeon R9 390.

Mad Max

Mad Max is an open-world action game launched in September of 2015, using the Avalanche engine. In order to measure the performance using this game, we ran its intro, measuring the framerate with FRAPS three times. We ran the game at Full HD, with image quality set as “very high”.

The results below are expressed in fps and they are the mean between the three collected results.
