Batman: Arkham Knight, the fourth entry in Warner Brother's Batman: Arkham series, is based on the same Unreal Engine 3 as its predecessor and an Nvidia-sponsored title. Favoring one camp of GPUs is hardly the least contentious way to launch a new game, however it seems this release would have rattled cages regardless. Countless Nvidia and AMD users have expressed anger about Arkham Knight's performance and stuttering issues. Here's what we found in our tests.
The new GeForce GTX 980 Ti is targeting 4K gaming on a single GPU and with 6GB of memory onboard it's still overkill but without excess. We expect the GTX 980 Ti to be a processing powerhorse that rivals the more expensive Titan X but for $350 off the sticker price.
The Witcher 3 is the New Crysis We have tested nineteen DirectX 11 graphics cards to find out how the game performs in both AMD and Nvidia hardware. After extensive testing it's clear why The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt doesn't look nearly as good as the 2013's trailer: even in its current uber beautiful form, the game is simply too demanding for today's hardware.
Nvidia's Maxwell architecture is a wonderfully impressive piece of engineering for efficiency geeks, and it reaches near-apotheosis with the GM200-powered GeForce GTX Titan X. This is an architecture that has very clearly been tailored and tuned to maximize gaming performance per watt...
The GeForce Titan X is a processing powerhorse: 6 graphics processing clusters, 24 streaming multiprocessors with 3072 CUDA cores. Combined with six 64-bit memory controllers (384-bit) for a total 12GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 7GHz, that's 50% more cores and memory bandwidth than the current single-GPU king, the GeForce GTX 980 that was released a mere six months ago. Needless to say, we're eager to see what the new Titan X is capable of.
