MSI N580GTX Lightning Review

Shogun 2 is set in 16th-century feudal Japan, in the aftermath of the Ōnin War. The country is fractured into rival clans led by local warlords, each fighting for control. The player takes on the role of one of these warlords, with the goal of dominating other factions and claiming his rule over Japan. The standard edition of the game will feature a total of eight factions (plus a ninth faction for the tutorial), each with a unique starting position and different political and military strengths.

All settings are pushed to ultra with hardware shadows and SSAO enabled.

We use a very intensive game section to test at 1080p with the image quality settings maxed, and the Lightning proves to deliver excellent performance throughout.

The steam version of the game offers several prebuilt benchmark options which may be useful to test directly against your own system. Below are both results from the automated Direct X11 720p and 1080p benchmarks.
