Benchmarks: Thief, Watch Dogs, Dragon Age

Thief was another big title of 2014 and we had to wait till the GTX 980 Ti was released before it could be enjoyed at over 60fps at 2560x1600. The GTX 1080 takes things to the next level, with a 41% performance boost averaging 90fps, while we run into a system bottleneck at 1366x768.

Watch Dogs is still a visually impressive title, though when using the GTX 1080 it does start to show its age as frame rates hovered above 100fps at 2560x1600. The GTX 1080 was 26% faster than the GTX 980 Ti and 69% faster than the GTX 980.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is one of the newest games tested so far as it was released in late 2014. Clearly the title even today is still very demanding, as the GTX 1080 averaged just 77fps at 2560x1600 making it 31% faster than the GTX 980 Ti which averaged 59fps. We have come a long way since 2012’s GTX 680 which rendered just 27fps on average.
