SOFTSTAR has launched a model new single-player an motion RPG that’s rooted in Chinese language historical past and mythology, Xuan-Yuan Sword VII. Xuan-Yuan Sword VII makes use of real-time Ray Tracing and helps DLSS 2.0. As such, we’ve determined to benchmark this recreation and (on this article) deal with these two applied sciences.
For these RTX benchmarks, we used an Intel i9 9900K with 16GB of DDR4 at 3600Mhz. Naturally, we’ve paired this machine with an NVIDIA RTX 2080Ti. We additionally used Home windows 10 64-bit and the most recent model of the GeForce drivers.
Xuan-Yuan Sword VII helps ray-traced international illumination, and there’s solely a basic Ray Tracing possibility accessible. Briefly, you’ll be able to both allow or disable the World Illumination Ray Tracing results.
At native 2560×1440, our RTX 2080Ti was unable to supply a continuing 60fps expertise. Whereas for essentially the most time our framerates have been averaging between 63fps and 80fps, there have been scenes through which our framerate was dropping to 55fps. These with G-Sync displays could not discover these drops, nevertheless, we advise utilizing DLSS in High quality Mode. Except after all you personal an RTX 3080 or RTX 3090.
The rationale we advise utilizing DLSS High quality is as a result of there aren’t any noticeable variations between this mode and native resolutions. Not solely that, however DLSS Efficiency additionally does a terrific job, and may come near native resolutions. This is without doubt one of the greatest DLSS implementations, and we strongly counsel utilizing it.
Beneath you will discover some comparability screenshots between DLSS High quality, Balanced and native 1440p. The one method through which you’ll discover some – if any – variations between them is by opening them in new tabs and zooming in to distant objects. Critically, DLSS is completely unimaginable on this recreation.
With DLSS High quality and Ray Tracing at 1440p, we have been all the time getting framerates increased than 70fps. With DLSS Efficiency, we have been getting framerates increased than 90fps.
Our correct PC Efficiency Evaluation (through which we’ll benchmark each AMD and NVIDIA GPUs) will go reside in a number of days, so keep tuned for extra!
