AMD vs Nvidia: R9 290X is Better Than GTX 980 Ti SLI for Killer Instinct DX12?
GTX 980 Ti is Nvidia’s current flagship beast that can handle every game at ultra settings without breaking a sweat. However, over the past few months AMD has been blowing Nvidia cards out of the water and the rape continues as we look at some latest benchmarks for Killer Instinct using DX12.
- Intel Core i7 5960X Clocked at 4.6GHz
- Gigabyte X99 UD7 WiFi
- 32GB DDR4 Memory 2666Mhz
- SSD 120GB
- Nvidia: 364.72
- AMD: 16.4.1
Running the game at 1080p gave us minimum of 119 frames while max frames touched 135 using an Nvidia GTX 980 Ti. Running the same card in SLI gave us identical results, however, things get very intersting when we run the game on an AMD R9 290X.
The card is able to push 113 to 131 frames per second in Killer Instinct. Check out the gallery below for complete results (thanks; GameGPU)
AMD vs Nvidia battle is going in favor of AMD for the time being.
Nvidia’s 364.72 driver is being criticised for introducing performance related issues while AMD, the company who is often grinded for not providing decent software support, has stepped up its game to a whole new level since late last year.
Nvidia’s 364.72 update is causing performance related issues in Dark Souls 3 as well. Players are experiencing white screen, crashes, low FPS etc. For the time being it is advised that you revert back to 314.22 driver version.
If you are playing Dark Souls 3 and facing issues, here are some fixes that may help sort things out.
