Ashes Of The Singularity

Ashes

Planet by planet, a war is raging across the galaxy. The technological singularity has given humanity the power to expand further than they ever have before. Now, they compete with each other and their sentient artificial intelligence adversaries for control of newfound worlds.

ashes_1080

Ashes Of The Singularity is a GPU heavy game that can place thousands of units on the battlefield at once and the HIS RX 480 IceQ X2 Roaring Turbo 8GB gave us 55.3 FPS at 1080p. We limited the 1080p test to lower tier enthusiast and mainstream cards.

ashes_1440

Here at 1440p in AOTS we got 36.4 FPS from the HIS RX 480 IceQ X2 Roaring Turbo 8GB, so you will be good to go at 1440p with the HIS card.

Battlefield 4

Battlefield 4A

Explore a vast range of experiences that allow you to play your way. Be the lone wolf to take control of your own destiny or work together in tight-knit five-man squads to strike as a team. New maps, more vehicles, weapons and destruction allow you to create your own path and play to your strengths. Absolutely nothing compares to the sheer scale and scope of Battlefield 4.

battle_1080

At 1080p Battlefield 4 isn’t horribly demanding and the HIS RX 480 IceQ X2 Roaring Turbo 8GB gave us 81.2 FPS. Gameplay was smooth as silk, with no lagging, dragging, or micro-stutters.

battle_1440

Kicking the resolution up to 1440p we got 49.0 FPS from the HIS RX 480 IceQ X2 Roaring Turbo 8GB and experienced no issues, with rock solid gaming.

battle_4k

The 4K resolution wasn’t kind to the mainstream video cards, but they aren’t designed to run at this high of a resolution, and our HIS RX 480 gave it a good try at 25 FPS. With lowered graphical settings the game may be playable, but we stuck with 1440p on this test as the highest playable resolution.

GTA 5

GTA 5

Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV.
Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a street hustler looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.

The biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world ever created, Grand Theft Auto V blends storytelling and gameplay in new ways as players repeatedly jump in and out of the lives of the game’s three lead characters, playing all sides of the game’s interwoven story.

gta5_1080

GTA 5 is a thrill ride from beginning to end, and the HIS RX 480 IceQ X2 Roaring Turbo 8GB shoved 87.7 FPS at the screen at 1080p.

gta5_1440a

Notching the resolution up to 1440p, the HIS RX 480 IceQ X2 Roaring Turbo 8GB gave 45.4 FPS in heavy action scenes.

gta5_4k

Running GTA 5 at 4K is visually stunning and GPU intensive, and the HIS RX 480 IceQ X2 Roaring Turbo 8GB gave it a run for it’s money, but came up a little short with 26.9 FPS, so we’d say stick with 1440p.

  1. I’ve been trying to find the length of this card but can’t see it anywhere online (even the manufacturer’s official site!). Could you guys include that info in the “Closer Look”? Would be much appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Brendan
