We used the Bioshock Infinite demanding ‘Ultra’ setting and a 1920 x 1080 resolution to push today’s gaming hardware. Our data was recorded using a section of the game, not the built-in benchmark.
Metro: Last Light
We used a 1920 x 1080 resolution and the Metro: Last Light built-in benchmark set to ‘High’ quality to offer an intense challenge for the gaming hardware while also making playable frame rates a possibility.
We used a 1920 x 1080 resolution and the Tomb Raider built-in benchmark set to ‘Ultimate’ quality.
Punching pixels through the mighty GTX 970, gaming performance is where the Fusion Barbarian truly comes to life.
The GTX 970 simply breezes through our set of gaming benchmarks – registering 40-50% better performance than the contenders in Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider. Metro: Last Light frame rates were increased by 36% compared to the next fastest system configuration.
1920×1080 is no match for the GTX 970, especially when Gigabyte’s factory-overclock is taken into account. With Chillblast’s Fusion Barbarian sporting a GPU with this much power, the system looks to be perfectly capable of running titles at 1920×1080 with high – 120Hz and 144Hz – refresh rates, or an increased pixel count of 2560×1440.
