Ok so don’t take my analysis too seriously. You really have to watch SweViver’s video. He is FAR more indepth and reliable than I will ever be.
But just to clarify Skyrim was in my “shit --> ok/good” category.
When I say Skyrim “struggles even on lowest setting” I’m paraphrasing.
What SV actually says is it “starts to struggle already at PiTools 1.0” even though the FPS indicator is showing 90 fps mostly, so basically he must be picking up glitches etc. To me that’s quite “shit”. But it’s also ok. Because bear in mind he also is running this at “high” preset and “maximum ingame supersampling” because this is how he’s testing games, which I fully agree with. He wants to give us values based on an experience we’ll be happy with i.e. normal FOV and in the case of Skyrim max ingame settings. But sure you can just turn that down only a little I imagine and it won’t “start to struggle” at 1.0. So when I say “struggles on the lowest setting” I’m talking about PiTools 1.0 setting not the ingame settings.
Basically these tests are run in a rigid way, so “lowest settings” for SV and for me are basically just PiTools 1.0 but where the game looks good and are not to be confused with what you would call lowest settings, which would be lowest supersampling in -game too.
Hope that clarifies.
And don’t worry - I get the impression he has purposely tried mostly the tougher games and games like Skyrim at highest SS to really strain the cards to give us a meaningful difference. A lot of peopel doing the testing have done crappy settings where you go from an averag of 85 to an average of 90 which is useless because FPS is capped at 90(1). He’s trying to really strain things with high settings and difficult games to really show us a meaningful difference.
But 1080Ti will be great for most games including Skyrim I’m sure.
