Battlefield 4 @ UltraWide (3440x1440)

 

 

Battlefield 4 makes great use of DICE's incredible Frostbite 3 engine, with some great dynamic destructible environments in both the single-player and multiplayer sides of the game. The same engine has been deployed into many other games made by publisher EA, such as the new Need for Speed, and Mirror's Edge Catalyst.

 

You can buy Battlefield 4 at Amazon.

Grand Theft Auto V @ UltraWide (3440x1440)

 

 

Grand Theft Auto V is one of the best looking open-world games on the market, with Rockstar Games making great use of the power of the PC by offering an optional first-person mode, and the huge upgrade in graphics over its console counterparts.

GRID Autosport @ UltraWide (3440x1440)

 

 

GRID Autosport is powered by Codemasters' own in-house 'EGO 3.0' engine, and while it was released last year, it is still one of the best looking driving games on the market. This is in the face of Forza Motorsport 6, Project CARS, and other driving games. While it looks great, it also runs beautifully even on modest hardware.

 

You can buy GRID Autosport at Amazon, and you can read our full review here.

Metro: Last Light Redux @ UltraWide (3440x1440)

 

 

We recently changed over to Metro: Last Light Redux, with developer 4A Games making the Redux version of Metro: Last Light the 'definitive' version of the game. Redux had a fresh coat of paint on the already impressive 4A Engine, and it really pushes our GPUs to their limits.

 

You can buy Metro: Last Light Redux at Amazon.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor @ UltraWide (3440x1440)

 

 

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is one of the most graphically intensive games we test, with Monolith using their own Lithtech engine to power the game. When cranked up to maximum detail, it will chew through your GPU and its VRAM like it's nothing.

Thief @ UltraWide (3440x1440)

 

 

Thief has been around for quite a while now, with the latest version of the first-person stealth game powered by Epic Games' older Unreal Engine 3. While it's old, it has some great multi-GPU scaling that we use to test out our various GPU setups.

 

You can buy Thief at Amazon.

Tomb Raider @ UltraWide (3440x1440)

 

 

Tomb Raider is still such a gorgeous game, with developer Crystal Dynamics using their own 'Foundation' engine to build Lara Croft into the new world. One of the best parts about Tomb Raider is the absolutely stellar multi-GPU scaling, so this is an important test to see how well our NVIDIA GeForce SLI and AMD Radeon Crossfire setups scale.

 

You can buy Tomb Raider at Amazon.

BioShock Infinite @ UltraWide (3440x1440)

 

 

Irrational Games built BioShock Infinite on a heavily modified version of Unreal Engine 3, putting it on the same playing field as Thief. It's still a great game to test on our various video cards, but this is one of the games we will soon be replacing as we get into the end of the year.

 

You can buy BioShock Infinite at Amazon.
