NVIDIA Star Wars TITAN Xp Collector's Edition Review: The GeForce Is Strong With This One

NVIDIA Star Wars Titan Xp CE - Shadow Of War And Ghost Recon Wildlands

Monolith’s surprisingly fun Orc-slaying title Middle Earth: Shadow of War, delivers a ton of visual fidelity even at its lower quality settings. So, to maximize the eye-candy on these high-end graphics cards, we used the game’s Ultra quality preset and ran the benchmark routine at a couple of resolutions, topping out at 4K -- or, excuse us, 3840x2160 for the sticklers out there. All of the game's graphics-related options were enabled, along with Temporal AA and Camera Blur. We should note this is the latest installment in the successful game series and our review of Shadow of War is right here, if you'd like to catch up on the happenings in Middle Earth.

The frame and rendering times show the Titan Xp CE churning through this benchmark faster than every other card across the board -- which is no surprise looking at its frame rates.

DirectX 11 Gaming Performance
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands is a tactical shooter, set in an open-world environment. The game is played from a third-person perspective, though there is an optional first person view when aiming certain guns. Players are members of the fictional "Ghosts", an elite special-operations unit of the United States Army. We tested Wildlands -- which is a DX11 title -- with all of the in-game graphical options cranked up to their maximum values, at both 1440P and 4K...

So, you thought the Titan Xp Star Wars Collector's Edition might falter in the Wildlands benchmark? Think again, you stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf herder. The Titan Xp pulled out in front at both resolutions and offered the best minimum framerates too.
