I am celebrating the magical appearance of a new graphics card today by benching my old hardware, a Ryzen 7 3700x / GTX 960 2GB. Vulkan seems to struggle a bit on my current GPU in some cases, like Hunter's Moon 3.6, which can slow down the framerate to 40+ fps with its big blood decals on my machine.
I played through Frozen Time at 1440p on Vulkan. Frametime in the fps counter seemed to hover at 17-18ms, which is what I saw during the benchmarks too.
My first submission is for nVidia GeForce Game Ready Driver WHQL 471.68. Perhaps should be ignored because I noticed an issue.
FPS was locked at 60Hz, likely due to a Geforce driver setting. I had "Low Latency Mode" set ON, and G-Sync set to fullscreen and windowed. Both are custom settings.
My second submission is for a clean installation of WHQL 471.96. Windows Update was run for "reliability improvements," moving the system from KB5005033 to KB4023057 (August 10th to 13th updates). Now I'm seeing proper uncapped FPS counts. Frozen Time's bench has improved to a stable 16ms and around 63fps.
Submission 3: "benchmarks-frauds-amd-e1-2500-apu"
benchmarks a Pavilion Slimline 400-314 with AMD E1-2500 APU, a 15 watt mobile dual-core part incorporating a Radeon HD 8240. Fresh Windows 10 installation a year back, configured for low performance, but it still eats nearly half the RAM just booting, and thrashes the hard drive while browsing light websites without video. Standard Windows Updates, no special drivers.
Interesting findings: Benching OpenGL 3.3+ without pipelining in KDIZD, I noticed the brown walls flash yellow once. After finishing my bench runs I ran both OpenGL 3.3+ full non-pipelined and pipelined again, and saw it again in the non-pipelined test, only on that map. In these runs Frozen Time was bad with 4-5fps and frame times over 250ms, but Hurt was even worse, with framerates of 3-4 and frame times over 350ms! After the Geforce 960 runs I expected Frozen Time to be the performance hog here. CPU bottleneck at fault? I hope to get some more benchmarks for systems more in line with the request, but these systems were closest to hand.
