Performance Summary Charts
Performance summary charts & graphs
Here are our results of 26 games and 1 synthetic test. All results except for Firestrike are expressed in average fps (in Bold) and also generally in minimum fps (where they make sense, in smaller italics next to the averages). Each platform is compared against the other in the adjoining results column in white (Skylake) versus black (Devil’s Canyon). Please open this chart in a separate tab or window for better viewing.
As we can see, the performance difference between two platforms is very minimal. There are only minor variations, and if there is a trend, perhaps Skylake has slightly better minimums. At the very least, our Skylake benchmarks validate the Devil’s Canyon benchmarks that we published in our original evaluation. We do not know if these minor differences are typical of Skylake versus Devil’s Canyon in gaming, but we will explore this in a future evaluation using more video cards.
Here is the RX 480 compared with the GTX 970 EXOC, the R9 390 OC, the reference 290X and with the GTX 980 as published in our original evaluation. All of the cards except for the RX 480 in the first column on Skylake are benched on Devil’s Canyon. Please open this chart in a separate tab or window for better viewing.
Let’s head for our conclusion.
