Batman Arkham Knight || Gameworks Comparison

author MercilessHobo   1 years ago

Just testing out the visuals and framerate differences between having Nvidia Gameworks on/off. Might be useful for someone trying to decide between AMD and Nvidia as well. I wouldn't recommend using Gameworks if you want a smooth gaming experience, although the effects do look cool.

FX 8350
GTX 970 SC

Sorry guys, this video took me much longer than I expected it to take because the amount of dickery went so deep. It's not as though I previously didn't know about this stuff, but investigating properly... jeez, poor AMD :( Time and time again, it's the same story. I investigate. 0:08 - PhysX 1:16 - Tessellation (Important to understand later examples) 1:45 - Crysis 2's DX11 upgrade 2:31 - Fallout 4's Godrays 2:51 - Witcher 3's Hairworks 3:02 - Nvidia Gameworks Controversy 3:42 - Why hasn't AMD prepared for this? + Nvidia's defence 4:08 - AMD's competing technologies and open sourcery 4:59 - OPENGPU VS Gameworks... but will Nvidia accept? 5:36 - 3D Vision and Gsync 6:36 - Shadowplay XOXOXOX 7:15 - Conclusion I knew this would happen, but there are a number of recurring responses from people. I'm pleased with this video because it says what I wanted to quickly and without getting off-topic to defend myself. But I'll do it here: 'Nvidia's a company! They're not meant to play nice!!!', which is why they're DICKS. What they're doing isn't illegal, but it's anti-competitive. It's not about using their own technologies. It's about deliberately making life hard for everybody else, which DOES have a knock-on effect for users of competing products. 'Nvidia is more than half the audience!!!11' Doesn't change what I said tbh. But if you factor in Intel, who also does graphics, then they are about 50-50. 'AMD HAS RAPTR!!!!' Yeah I mention this. Raptr's video capture is GVR. It's good, but can't support EVERY application or desktop use, which is very useful for me on a day-to-day basis. It's also only HD, and the limitations in other areas are lower as well. It's not quite good enough. I would have included links to all of the sources but a quick google search of them works just as well. This video originally started off as a comparison between Nvidia and AMD technologies but naturally evolved into this as I investigated them. Brought to you by an Nvidia user.
