Thief Frame Experience Analysis


Above, the percentile chart of the roughly one minute gaming @ 2560x1440. Here we plot FPS and place it in relation to percentiles.

  • 50% of the time measured frames is doing roughly 47 FPS, so that is the average framerate (high = better).


The first 15 seconds of the Thief benchmark sequence are difficult with the rain and everything. That results in small stutters and hitches, all cards tested show this visibly on screen. Once it passes that first 15 seconds we no longer detect a significant enough glitch or stutter in frametime scaling (chart wise) that is extremely significant or long-lasting. For those that do not understand what you are looking at, the above is a gametime scene recorded for ~30 seconds. With this chart, lower = better. Huge spikes above 40 ms to 50 ms can be considered a problem like a stutter or indicate a low framerate below 20 FPS.

As you can see, at 2560x1440 the 2GB graphics memory is just too little, this is creating several stutters and at the end of the run some irritation.
