The NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN Z Review
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (DirectX 9)
The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered.
Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel.
The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.
Our settings for Skyrim
Here is a video our testing run through, for your reference
Skyrim remains our last vestige of DX9 and at 2560x1440, there is literally no differences in capability between the compared graphics configurations. All three were running around 170 FPS on average and had very similar amounts of frame variance.
At 4K though things look bad for AMD. The company has stated quite plainly that the fixes for frame pacing with DX9 just are never coming, and as a result, Skyrim shows some dramatic frame time variance in our testing. This pushes average frame rates (when removing the runt frames) down to about 90 FPS on the R9 295X2 while both NVIDIA solutions sit at about 120 FPS.
