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

Even though Skyrim is not the GPU hog that Crysis 3, Far Cry 3 and Sleeping Dogs, a LOT of people still love to play this RPG and it shows some compelling results.  The HD 7850 is without a doubt the best card of these three and the HD 7790 and the GTX 650 Ti are closer than they have ever been.  The HD 7850 averages a frame rate of 80 or so, while the HD 7790 and GTX 650 Ti result in average frame rates of 51 and 41 respectively.  Even more important though is the spikes in frame times seen in both the GTX 650 Ti and HD 7790 parts – an indication that the 1GB frame buffer is a limit at our Ultra preset.
