Asus’ lead again appears significant in the charts, though we doubt anyone would actually see the difference between 53.3 and 51.1 frames per second. On the other hand, a comparison of the strongest card to the base model is a far more valuable metric.
All of the cards lose their ability to play completely smoothly at our medium resolution when AA is enabled, but the bench appeared smooth at 1920x1080 for all but the slowest card as we watched with AA disabled.
AvPTool does not show minimum FPS, and the game’s minimum FPS is so close to its average that we had to actually watch this one to determine “relative” smoothness.
