Benchmarks: Total War: Warhammer, Watch Dogs 2

Total War: Warhammer is a game that I feel really should be played using the DX12 API regardless of whether you are running AMD or Nvidia hardware. Like Ashes of the Singularity during battles when there are masses of units on screen the CPU takes a good old pounding using DX11.

Anyway even on DX12 the GTX 1080 Ti is still mighty fast pushing over 100fps at all times, at 1080p. At 1440p frame rates are again very strong and we often saw frame rates exceed 100 fps. Now at 4K the average frame rate has been heavily reduced as you would expect, still with an average of 65 fps it was an impressive 30% faster than the standard 1080.

Finally Watch Dogs 2 is the last game I have tested, I promise. Despite being a hugely demanding game on system resources, aka unoptimised, the GTX 1080 Ti still manages to reach 100 fps on average. Even at 1440p frame rates remain high and Nvidia's new GPU is still good for 91 fps allowing it to match the Titan XP.

Moving to 4K the 1080 Ti is still time 23% faster than the original 1080 as it went on to reach an average of 59 fps.
