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

 

As our only remaining DX9 title, Skyrim remains an interesting beast.  Clearly all four of these cards are capable of running Skyrim at 2560×1440 and top quality settings without much of a hassle, but the R9 290X does come out on top of both the GTX Titan and the GTX 780 in average frame rate without any problems with frame time or frame variance.
