FCAT Frame Experience Analysis Hitman Absolution
Hitman Absolution Frame Experience Analysis
Above a percentile chart of the 30 seconds @ 2560x1440. Here we plot FPS and place it in relation to percentiles. This methodology could be used to determine average FPS as well.
Check the 50% marker:
- R7-260X does roughly 23 FPS on average in this scene sequence
- R9-270X does roughly 38 FPS on average in this scene sequence
- R9-280X does roughly 57 FPS on average in this scene sequence
But now lets look at frame latency.
On this 30 second run all graphics cards manages to remain at a very constant rendering flow with fairly low latency for the two fastest cards. We cannot detect any noticeable anomalies like glitches and stutters. This is a very good result really. The one drop in latency for the R9-280X is not visible, and nothing of concern whatsoever.
For those that do not understand what you are looking at, the above is a scene rendered, the first 30 seconds of the Hitman integrated benchmark.
With this chart, lower = better. Huge spikes above 40-50ms can be considered a problem like a stutter or indicate a low framerate. For all three cards this is a near perfect result.
