Next up in the GTX 1060 game benchmark series lets take a look at the latest Total War title. We will explore how well the new Nvidia GTX 1060 can run Total Warhammer on Ultra graphics settings, so that we can better understand what performance to expect from our $300, should we choose to get Nvidias lower end 1000 series card. Also we will test the graphics card running at 1080p and 1440p screen resolutions and see the difference between the reference GTX 1060 Founders Edition versus the overclocked GTX 1060 MSI version of the same card.

Total Warhammer on Nvidia GTX 1060 Ultra Benchmark Comparison Graph

The frame rate numbers are derived from the new benchmark tool that Total Warhammer has built in. We use this to help standardise the results across cards, but beware that the actual FPS in TW warhammer can radically change during an intense close up of a battle or even compared to zooming around the campaign map.

NOTE - We only have modern Nvidia graphics cards to test at the moment. Once the new AMD cards arrive we will compare all this awesome benchmark data against them as well. We also wanted to get the benchmarks out to you as soon as possible. However, we have lots of juicy data across the whole of Game-Debate for hardware comparisons against game system requirements and any other graphics card, so be sure to take a look here.
