The games with built-in benchmarks were run on Ultra (or their highest preset, but by another name) with AA (anti-aliasing) disabled. Overwatch and Battlefield 1 are run in real-time multiplayer matches, with their highest settings enabled and once again, AA disabled. We played two full-length games (5-10 minutes each) of Overwatch, while we played around 5 minutes of BF1 64-player matches in Conquest mode playing in one map with clear weather, and another map with dynamic weather and then averaged the results from these two runs.
This will provide us with enough variety, but I'm on the hunt for new benchmarks all the time. Now that both Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Battlefield 1 are here, I've now revamped my entire graphics card review structure to include those games. Both of them work with DX12, so we can get a good look at the performance not just between DX11 and DX12, but the performance difference between AMD and NVIDIA in both DX11 and DX12.
Included in our changes of the games we play and test, is Overwatch. Overwatch is a great game to test to see how the mid-range cards like the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, because it can easily hit 60FPS, and still be a great looking game that is incredibly fun, too. We run Overwatch in real-time matches with 12 players, with all of the intensity, explosions, energy beams and everything else happening - I have a really fun job.
