The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (DirectX 9)
The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered.
Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel.
The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.
Our settings for Skyrim
Here is a video our testing run through, for your reference
Skyrim is much less GPU bound than other titles in our test suite so it isn’t until the 2560×1600 resolution that the new GTX 690 starts to differentiate itself, moving ahead of the GTX 590 by 17%.
We are still seeing some odd issues with the 7970s in CrossFire with this title – we are going to be re-doing our testing this week again as I think the culprit is our configuration, not the AMD hardware. Still, we found that with the latest driver update the GTX 690 is actually slightly faster than a pair of GTX 680s in SLI basically across the board.
