At 2560x1440 gamers will require at the very least a GeForce GTX 780 Ti or GTX 970 for perfectly playable performance with all the eye candy turned up. Graphics cards such as the GTX Titan and GTX 780 struggled to average 50fps.
The Radeon R9 290X matched the GTX 770 with an average of 44fps, though it is interesting to note that most mid-range GPUs were able to average around 40fps including the Radeon R9 285/280X.
Those wanting to play in all weather conditions will require some serious GPU power, as the rainy conditions at 1440p reduced the GeForce GTX Titan X to just 46fps with a minimum of 39fps. Meanwhile the GTX 960 surprised again by delivering unexpected performance as it matched the GTX 780.
AMD Radeon GPUs struggle with current unoptimized drivers. The R9 290X was 3fps slower than the GTX 780.
