8K Benchmarking: 7680 x 4320 is AMAZING! - Part 1

By Anthony Garreffa from Aug 30, 2017 @ 23:54 CDT

8K Benchmarking... Not Good, Yet


Our 8K benchmarking will be an influx of change for the next few weeks, but with some preliminary benchmark results, we can see how a single NVIDIA TITAN Xp graphics card handles 7680x4320.


The TITAN Xp was benchmarked against the older TITAN X(P) and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, as well as AMD's new Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition graphics card. We have some very interesting results to share, and you might just be surprised with what the RX Vega 64 is capable of.



We ran a handful of benchmarks including Unigine Heaven for our synthetic test, while running Metro: Last Light Redux, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Far Cry Primal and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. I will be adding more benchmarks to this list, but for now, let's check out the performance.






Rise of the Tomb Raider is one of the best looking games on the market, a truly gorgeous game - and a wonder to benchmark. The team at Crystal Dynamics made a very scalable PC game that plays really well testing graphics cards. We've got DX11 and DX12 results in one here, showing the slight strengths of running DX12 mode.







Far Cry Primal is a game built on the impressive Dunia Engine 2 with wide open, beautiful environments. It might look stunning, but the performance is actually quite good - but most cards will be stressed at 1440p, and especially so at 4K and beyond.


You can buy Far Cry Primal at Amazon.







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.


You can buy Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor at Amazon.







Metro: Last Light Redux comes from 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.
