Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is an action role-playing video game developed by Ubisoft Quebec and published by Ubisoft. It is the 11th major installment, and 21st overall, in the Assassin’s Creed series and the successor to 2017’s Assassin’s Creed Origins. Set in the year 431 BC, the plot tells a fictional history of the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta. Players control a male or female mercenary who fights for both sides as they attempt to unite their family.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is a very demanding game on your GPU. Although the TUF 5600 XT had higher max frame rates in both resolutions on the 9900k system, in both 1080p and 1440p, the ASUS TUF 5600 XT had better averages on the i7-9700k test bench. On our 9900k system in 1080p resolution, we averaged 46 frames per second in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. On the 9700k system, we averaged 59 frames per second in 1080p. In 1440p, we averaged 37 frames per second in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on the 9900k system and 44 frames per second on the 9700k system.
Borderlands 3 is an action role-playing first-person shooter video game developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K Games. It is the sequel to 2012’s Borderlands 2, and the fourth main entry in the Borderlands series. Borderlands 3 was released on 13 September 2019 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on 30 October 2019 for Apple macOS.
In Borderlands 3, the results for the ASUS TUF 5600 XT were very close on both systems. I’d dare to say, within the margin of error. In 1080p, the TUF 5600 XT averaged 60 frames per second on our 9900k test bench and 61 frames per second on our 9700k system. In 1440p, there was a slightly larger gap between the two systems, as in two frames instead of one. On the 9900k system, the TUF 5600 XT averaged 43 frames per second and 45 frames per second on the 9700k system.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is an action role-playing game with first-person shooter and stealth mechanics that released in 2016. Set two years after Human Revolution in 2029, the world is divided between normal humans and those with advanced, controversial artificial organs called augmentations. You take up the role of Adam Jensen, a double agent for the hacker group Juggernaut Collective, who are equipped with the latest and most advanced augmentation technology. This game is beautiful and still very demanding on your system. The section bench marked was near the beginning of the game, after the tutorial.
The results for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided reflected the results of Borderlands 3 as they were very close on both systems. In 1080p The ASUS TUF 5600 XT averaged 69 frames per second on the 9900k system and 67 frames per second on the 9700k system. In 1440p the TUF 5600 XT averaged 49 frames per second on our 9900k test bench and 48 frames per second on our 9700k system.
Far Cry New Dawn
Far Cry New Dawn is a 2019 first-person shooter developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. The game is a spin-off of the Far Cry series and a narrative sequel to Far Cry 5. As a result, it features many pre-existing game play elements from the series, including a large open world, capturing outposts, and AI or co-op companions; but also introduces several elements from RPG game play, including an upgradeable home base and increased reliance of crafting from limited supplies.
In Far Cry New Dawn, the ASUS TUF 5600 XT performed better on our 9700k test bench. In 1080p, the ASUS TUF 5600 XT averaged 58 frames per second on the 9700k system. This is five frames per second than the 563 FPS average on the 9900k system. In 1440p, the ASUS TUF 5600 XT averaged 29 frames per second on our 9700k system and only 25 frames per second on our 9900k system. Now, keep in mind this is on the games max setting. So, the TUF 5600 XT could easily handle 1440p with lowered setting in Far Cry New Dawn.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is a tactical shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Paris and published by Ubisoft. It was released worldwide on March 7, 2017, as the tenth installment in the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon franchise and is the first game in the Ghost Recon series to feature an open world environment. The game moves away from the futuristic setting introduced in Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter and instead features a setting similar to the original Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon with the game world including a wide variety of environments such as mountains, forests, deserts, and salt flats.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands was an odd one for the TUF 5600 XT. We actually ran this benchmark 6 times to see if the first round was a fluke. But in 1080p, pretty much every run was at least similar. The TUF 5600 XT averaged 60 frames per second on our 9700k system in 1080p and only 44 frames per second on our 9900k system. In 1440p, the results were much closer. The ASUS TUF 5600 XT averaged 32 frames per second on the 9700k system and 34 frames per second on our 9900k system.
Hitman 2 is a stealth video game developed by IO Interactive and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It is the seventh major installment in the Hitman video game series and is the sequel to the 2016 game Hitman. The game was released on 13 November 2018 and was met with generally positive reviews, with critics considering it to be an improvement over its predecessor.
Hitman 2 is my least favorite of the in-game-benchmarks we run. My reason for this is seen in the results. The in-game-benchmark always ends up with stupid high max frame rates. At times, as high as 500 to 600 frames per second. This to me seems to be an unrealistic representation of the results you see in-game. That being said, after extensive testing, it does seem that the averages work out to be about what you see in actual game play. With that, here are the results. In 1080p, there was a large gap between the two test systems. This was another one of the tests we ran 6 times, as opposed to the three we regularly run. In 1080p, the ASUS TUF 5600 XT averaged 99 frames per second on the 9700k system, but only 53 frames per second on the 9900k system. No idea why there is such a gap between the two, at least in 1080p. In 1440p, the TUF 5600 XT averaged 33 frames per second on our 9700k system and 32 frames per second on the 9900k system.
