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 1920×1080, the GeForce GTX 1070 FE was found to be 36% faster than the EVGA GeForce GTX 970 Hybrid Gaming card on the average frame rate. We’re seeing the GTX 1070 FE to be approximately 7.5% slower than the factory overclocked Zotac GeForce GTX 980 Ti Amp! Extreme card, which is impressive to say the least!
Benchmark Results: With the display resolution cranked up to 2560×1440 we GeForce GTX 1070 FE was still putting up a good fight by being 45% faster than the EVGA GeForce GTX 970 Hybrid Gaming card, and was still knocking on the door of the Zotac and ASUS 980 Ti.
Benchmark Results: When we increased the resolution to 3840×2160 for some 4K gaming goodness, the GeForce GTX 1070 FE was found to be only 10% faster than the Fury X and 48% faster than the EVGA GeForce GTX 970 Hybrid Gaming card!
