eSports games performance: a look in the world of professional gaming

Benchmarks of Dota 2, Overwatch, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Rainbow Six Siege and CS:GO


CS: GO & Rainbow Six Siege results

All other games in our test are in fact shooter games. In CS: GO we run into a CPU bottleneck at around 240 fps. AMD's RX 580 and all Nvidia cards from the GTX 1060 3 GB and up achieve this frame rate. The GTX 1050 reached respectively 212 and 222 fps on low and medium settings, where it should be noted that the higher settings do not impact the performance of this card that much. The same cannot be said for the RX 550 (169 and 193 fps).

Rainbow Six Siege scales pretty well. The 1050 is capable of 120 fps on low settings, the GTX 1060 3GB passes the 200-fps mark and from the RX 580 and up you can also get 200 fps on medium settings. The step up from the GTX 1070 to the 1080 Ti also comes with a small bump in performance, however it's not worth the (very) high price increase
