Skyrim – Single GPU
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
Our last game, and our oldest it seems, shows the most confusing results. In this case, the GTX 780 Ti is actually running a bit faster than the GTX 980. It is also another case where the R9 290X is slightly faster. At 4K those results actually skew a bit further in favor of the R9 290X.
As I expected by now the pattern is repeated with the GTX 970 and R9 290, giving AMD another win.
