Test results: WQHD (2560x1440)
The step-up from FullHD (1080p) to WQHD (1440p) is a large one in terms of resolution, which gives the graphics cards some 77% more pixels to chew on. We have not changed the settings for Medium and Ultra between the two resolutions.
At medium, most of the cards do no appear to have any issues with the resolution. The GTX 1080 Ti drops from 161 fps on FullHD to 156 fps on WQHD and the R7 370 goes from 61 down to 50 respectively. For a minimum framerate of 60 fps at this resolution, the RX560 is already enough.
On ultra, the GTX 1080 Ti is still the fastest graphics card, but both the Vega 64 and Vega 56 are only marginally behind. The mainstream rivals, such as the GTX 1060 6GB and the RX 580 keep the competition exciting with very similar scores. While the RX 580 was a little faster at medium, on ultra we see the GTX 1060 being faster that the Polaris. The 3GB GTX 1060 has a performance gap of 39% to the 6GB version and is surpassed by the R9 380.
