Middle Earth Shadow of War Test Setup


While playing and benchmarking the Middle Earth Shadow of War, I am using a Gigabyte X370 Gaming 5 motherboard powered with an AMD Ryzen 7 1700. The CPU is overclocked to 4GHz so we can get better frames per second specially at 1080p. Below are the rest of the system specifications:

Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64bit
Motherboard: Aorus X370 Gaming 5
Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 1700 @ 4GHz
CPU Cooler: Thermaltake Pacific RL360 LCS with Pacific W4 RGB CPU Block.
Memory: Galax Hall-Of-Fame DDR4-3600MHz 16GB
Storage Drives: Patriot HellFire M.2 NVMe SSD, WD Blue SSD
Power Supply: Seasonic 850W Prime Titanium
Chassis: Thermaltake Core P5

The graphics card used in benchmarking Shadow of War are the following:

For the graphics drivers, I used the NVIDIA GeForce 388.13 WHQL driver for the GeForce graphics cards, while for the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64, I used the AMD Crimson ReLive 17.11.1 Win 10 64-bit driver. I used Fraps to capture the frame rate and I also used the built-in benchmark tool to record the frame rate for consistency.

Note that I find a difference on the FPS numbers displayed on the built-in game benchmark compared to the numbers I got with Fraps. You can see what I mean on the benchmark video I included in the next page. However, the numbers I reflected in the graphs are the results I got using Fraps.

Now let’s proceed to the next page for the benchmark results…
