AMD Radeon R9 Nano Versus NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980
Fallout 4 is an open world action role-playing video game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. Fallout 4 is set in a post-apocalyptic Boston in the year 2287, 210 years after a devastating nuclear war, in which the player character emerges from an underground bunker known as a Vault. Gameplay is similar to Fallout 3. The title is the fifth major installment in the Fallout series and was released worldwide on November 10th, 2015.
Fallout 4 was benchmarked with ultra image quality settings with TAA and 16x AF. These settings are tough for entry level discrete graphics cards, but are more than playable on high-end gaming graphics cards. V-Sync can’t be disabled in the games options, so we edited the necessary INI files and disabled vsync in the driver software as well. We used FRAPS to benchmark Fallout 4 after you emerge from the vault and are in The Commonwealth.
Benchmark Results: In Fallout 4 at 2560×1440 the GeForce GT 980 4GB reference card was found to be 2-3 FPS slower than the AMD Radeon R9 Nano 4GB reference card on the min/avg/max frame rates.
Benchmark Results: When we increased the resolution to 3840×2160 for some 4K gaming goodness the performance gap remained the same.
