Watch Dogs Benchmarks - AMD Radeon R9 1080p and 4K

Watch Dogs Benchmarks - AMD Radeon R9 1080p and 4K

Introduction and Specifications

Considered to be one of the most highly anticipated games of 2014, Watch_Dogs is definitely one of those titles that you just have to play. However, many wonder about how the game will actually run on their computer and that is why we benchmarked the game using the Ultra preset at 1080p and 4K resolutions. For our test, we used the latest 14.6 beta drivers from AMD that are optimized for the game.

For the graphics cards, we tested the AMD Radeon R9 270X, R9 280X, R9 290X and the dual-GPU R9 295X2.

For our test, we first walked around the city streets in the day time for 1 minute and then drove around the city in a car for another minute.

Conclusion

As you can see Watch Dogs seems to run pretty well on AMD graphics cards despite the initial problems. At 1080p, a R9 280X seems to be your best bet if you want to play on Ultra settings and don't want to experience any stuttering. Going with a R9 290 or R9 290X will guarantee 60+ fps gameplay at 1080p. As far as 4K goes, you're really going to want to go with either CrossFire R9 290(X)'s or a R9 295X2 for the best experience.
