Far Cry Primal has been out for over a week on consoles and only a couple of days on PC, and although the latter is so buggy it hurts, the performance benchmarks for your graphics cards are still relevant. We have got your AMD vs Nvidia comparisons on TechFrag which many of you will be surprised to read.
Before we go on to the results, lets look into the rig and the graphical presets. Firstly, the benchmark tests have used an Intel Core i7-6700K CPU, an Asus Z170 Deluxe motherboard with DDR4 memory. With Windows 10 Pro, they have used Nvidia GeForce 362.0 and AMD Radeon Crimson 16.2 Beta graphics drivers.
Moving on, Far Cry Primal was run at three different resolutions being 1920 × 1080 (Full HD), 2,560 × 1,440 (Quad HD) and 3,840 × 2,160 (Ultra HD).
Here are the results compared in the form of graphs.
As you can see, in the 1920 × 1080 (Full HD) resolution settings, only three Nvidia cards made it to the top 10 namely 980 Ti G1 Gaming, 980 Ti and 980 Strix.
The situation is the same in 2,560 × 1,440 (Quad HD) except that the 980 Ti drops a few points to R9 Fury Nitro and R9 Fury itself.
Even in the 1920 × 1080 (Full HD), 2,560 × 1,440 (Quad HD) it is just GeForce GTX 980 Ti G1 Gaming that manages to beat a number of AMD cards. However, even the 980 Ti G1 Gaming fails to do so on 3,840 × 2,160 (Ultra HD) where Radeon R9 Fury X takes over.
This is pretty disappointing for Nvidia as Far Cry Primal, being the latest release, is going to matter a lot to the PC gamers – it is selling big too!
