Origin PC Millennium: Ghost Recon Wildlands & Shadow Of Mordor Benchmarks

Next we'll look at performance with a couple of triple-A title games, Middle Earth: Shadow Of Mordor and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands. In these game tests, we set up both 1080p / high frame rate tests, as well as 4K very high image quality testing, to show both ends of the spectrum for fast action, lag-free gaming on the and top-notch visuals.

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Performance
Glorious Orc-Slaying Vengeance
Monolith’s surprisingly fun Orc-slaying title delivers a ton of visual fidelity even at the lowest quality settings. So, to maximize eye candy while also heavily taxing the cards, we ran the game's built in benchmark with its Ultra quality settings at a couple of resolutions, topping out at 4K on these tricked-out dragster gaming PCs.

Obviously, having two overclocked GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards, any system should be able to handle 1080p and even 1440p gaming with ease, but what happens when we crank the resolution up to 4K? The Millennium lets out a hearty laugh, that's what. In Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, the Millennium topped 200 frames per second at 4K, compared to 270 fps at 1440p and 280 fps at 1080p.

We have only recently begun compiling benchmark data for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands. However, the one other system that we have benchmark data for, Dell's Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition, is equipped with a single GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. This provides us an opportunity to see how performance scales in SLI with two GeForce GTX 1080 Ti cards underneath the hood.
