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.

Here is a video our testing run through, for your reference

Other than the odd, but VERY repeatable and reproduceable glitch on the Radeon R9 280X testing, the results show a very small advantage for the new R9 285 Tonga GPU over the R9 280.

 

Even at 2560×1440 on the Ultra preset (with FXAA enabled) the Radeon R9 285 is able to output more than 80 FPS average frame rate, more than enough to play the game at this resolution. Performance on the new GPU is again just barely ahead of the retiring Radeon R9 280.
