Benchmarks: 1080p

Even with AMD's recent driver update, the GTX 980 Ti still enjoys a serious performance advantage over the Fury X, delivering 24% more frames on average. The 980 Ti looks very comfortable with a 71fps minimum while the Fury X dropped down to 54fps and the standard 980 slightly slower again at 53fps. It's not often you see the GTX 970 beating the R9 390X with ease but that's the current situation here.

The same is true when comparing the R9 380 and GTX 960, the GeForce graphics card is a whisker faster here and just able to deliver playable performance at 1080p using the ultra quality settings. The same sadly can't be said for the R7 370 and GTX 950 though.

The latest crop of GPUs offer more models capable of pushing over 60fps, as you might expect. The Titan XP and GTX 1080 Ti were good for over 100fps at all times and averaged around 120fps. The GTX 1080 was also respectable, often pushing frame rates above 100fps.

It was a rather large drop down to the GTX 1070 but even so, with almost 80 fps on average performance was impressive. The GTX 1060 6GB easily topped the RX 480 despite AMD's recent driver update and here we see the RX 480 8GB delivering similar performance to the 1060 3GB.

We found that GPUs such as the RX 470 and GTX 1050 Ti were still able to provide playable performance at 1080p.
