Dying Light Benchmarked, Performance Review

Dying Light takes place in an expansive urban environment where players navigate using free running 'parkour' mechanics while scavenge for supplies to craft weapons and defend against the city's growing infected population.

When new GPUs arrive we usually compare them to their predecessor but rarely go back more than one generation.

The Crew Benchmarked, Performance Review

Ubisoft's new action-driving MMO has 7,000 miles of roads, 15 cities and 15 million individual objects.
