Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare VGA grapics performance
It is that time of the year again, we take out a dozen or so graphics cards and benchmark Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Join us in this article where many graphics cards are being tested with the new Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. We have a look at DX11 performance with the newest graphics cards and technologies. The new and popular title is looking great from a graphics point of view. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the debut mainline Call of Duty title from Sledgehammer Games. It will focus on a private military company (PMC) that has turned rogue, attacking the US government. Set some time in the future, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will feature futuristic tech such as cloaked vehicles and special climbing gloves that will allow the player to climb vertical surfaces.
For today's article will benchmark Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. Join us in this article where the latest graphics cards are being tested with the new Call of Duty. As such we'll take the more popular and modern graphics cards today and have a look at DX11 performance with the newest graphics cards and technologies. The new and popular title is looking great from a graphics point of view. The release of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, just like Ghosts is weird, the fact that it is only 64-bit in fact eliminates a number of customers. A second requirement for the game is that you need to have at least 6 GB of memory. If you have 3 or 4 GB installed, the game will not startup. We actually monitored DDR3 RAM behavior in-game and the game does eat away just of 4 Gigs of memory if you apply heaps of image quality settings. The game engine itself is fairly equal to the prequel though and especially with all tricks and bells enabled, it does look okay if your graphics card can manage it of course. However, no matter how we benchmark the results remain a little unreliable. One test run will result on 40 FPS, the second 36 FPS and another 33 FPS. Then another factor is a challenge as well, some levels average out at say 40 FPS, yet there are a handful of scenes (with helicopters and such) where the frame rate will crumble down. Now 80% of the game plays with good playable framerates, but a handful of levels will just stall any graphics card whatsoever. These means that the results shown today are indicative, not a precise measurement by any standard.
As such today we'll show you graphics cards tested on three resolutions, Full HD (1920x1080), WHQD (2560x1440) and Ultra HD (3840 pixels × 2160 lines) .
