Discrete GPU Gaming Performance

Thief

Thief is a series of stealth video games in which the player takes the role of Garrett, a master thief in a fantasy/steampunk world resembling a cross between the Late Middle Ages and the Victorian era, with more advanced technologies interspersed. Thief is the fourth title in the Thief series, developed by Eidos Montreal and published by Square Enix on February 25, 2014. We picked this game title for CPU testing as it is known to scale well with CPUs. We use the games built-in benchmark and test with the default settings with these changes; exclusive fullscreen, vSync off, 1920 x 1080, 60Hz.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is an action role-playing stealth video game developed by Eidos Montreal and published by Square Enix. Set in a cyberpunk-themed dystopian world in 2029, two years after the events of Human Revolution, Mankind Divided features the return of Adam Jensen from the previous game, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, with new technology and body augmentations. The game was released on August 23rd, 2016 for PC users and we are using it to show DX12 performance on the CPUs that we tested. DX12 removed most all of the CPU overhead, so we wanted to see what happens to performance on DX12 game titles as well. We use the games built-in benchmark and test with the default settings with these changes; DX12 enabled, exclusive fullscreen, vSync off, 1920 x 1080, 60Hz, medium graphics.

Discrete Gaming Benchmarks Results Summary: Gaming performance hasn’t been anything to write home about on this mega-core processors, but gaming performance was smooth. You can run multiple streams and game at the same time with more than acceptable frame rates, so it can game!

      Get a real job and you can afford any of those things, kid.

      • Cyberguy

        But I can afford them. A thousand times over. And I don’t even need your “real job”. Why should buy something I don’t need? Grow up junior, you’re out of your league here.

        • arterius2

        • Cyberguy

          That’s it? That’s all you got? I’d hoped you were better at trolling that that.

          So sad. Come back when you get better at it junior.

  • Terry Perry

    These kind of things are for the RICH who can TAX Wright them OFF because it is for their Company or Business.The Average person can’t do that. We just get to drool and Dream some day. BUT NOW there is the 1800 8 core NO MORE Dreaming. See the Price of the M.B.what a Joke.

    • arterius2

      wtf are you on crack? Do you flip burgers for a living? $1000 is not for the rich, that is like couple days of salary, get a real job.

      • Cyberguy

        $1000 is way too much for this junk. Perhaps like you are fond of telling others, you should get a real job yourself if $1000 is all you get for a couple days work.

        Peasant.
