Dragon Age: Inquisition VGA grapics performance
We take out a dozen or so graphics cards and benchmark First Dragon Age: Inquisition. Join us in this article where many graphics cards are being tested with the new First Dragon Age: Inquisition. 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.
Sprawling hills, green pastures, flowing rivers, lots of demons – The Hinterlands of Ferelden are a lovely place. Not that other regions of Thedas are better off. Rifts that link the physical world to the demonic Fade have appeared across the land, allowing hideous monsters to pour through and terrorize as they please. To make matters worse, mages and templars cut each other down at every turn, leaving plenty of collateral damage in their wake. Now, as the leader of the newly-formed Inquisition, it’s up to you and your band of heroes to strengthen your cause through politics and battle and put an end to all the chaos. You’ll need a sharp tongue and a sharper blade if you’re to succeed – thankfully, Dragon Age: Inquisition, a massive RPG by the developers at BioWare, gives you all the tools you’ll need to restore order. BioWare is a developer whose roots are in PC gaming, you can bet this version of Inquisition is the real deal. It's fine-tuned for good mouse and keyboard play; it's got pretty ok visual and interface options to tweak; and, of course, it's got 4K resolution and even AMD Mantle support.
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), we will peek at graphics memory usage, frame-time micro-stuttering performance and quality versus performance. But first, let's talk about how the game plays on PC and what it is all about.
