4K Benchmarks


Middle-earth: Shadow of War is a sequel to the popular Shadow of Mordor, which was powered by the Lithtech engine. 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 War at Amazon.

Metro Exodus is one of the hardest tests that our graphics cards have to go through, with 4A Games' latest creation being one of the best looking games on the market. It is a serious test that pushes GPUs to their limits, and also features RTX technologies like DLSS.

Far Cry New Dawn was developed by Ubisoft, and is powered the Dunia Engine, an engine that has been modified over the years for Far Cry and last used in Far Cry 5. Dunia Engine itself was a modified version of CRYENGINE, scaling incredibly well on all sorts of hardware.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is one of the latest games to join our graphics card benchmark lineup, with the game built using the Foundation engine as a base, the same engine in Rise of the Tomb Raider. Eidos Montreal R&D department made lots of changes to the engine during the development of Shadow of the Tomb Raider to make it one of the best-looking games out right now.

4K Benchmark Performance Thoughts

Note: Please don't buy the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER for 4K gaming, but I thought I would run the results and check them out for myself.

Shadow of War at 3840 x 2160 on a sub $200 graphics card with nearly 30FPS average? Hot damn. That's the magic of GDDR6 on a lower-end card, but wow-oh-wow does the GTX 980 Ti show its strength in its old age at 33FPS average at 4K.

Metro Exodus drops to just 12FPS, Far Cry New Dawn to 23FPS, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider to 21FPS. This isn't playable to me, period and I do not recommend it.
