The Witcher 3
The Witcher 3 is another benchmark where we've re-used the settings that we've settled on in past reviews. We also chose to test this title at 2560x1440 rather than 4K. We didn't crank the resolution in part because we wanted to maintain consistency with the numbers we produced in our Radeon R9 Fury X review, but also because the game is demanding enough that playing the game at 4K with high settings wasn't a great experience even on newer high-end cards.

The GTX 980 Ti turns in another razor-thin victory over the GTX 1070 in The Witcher 3. Let's see if our frame-time metrics can tell us why.

As it happens, the GTX 1070 spends a bit more time working on frames past the 16.7-ms mark. Both cards still turn in admirable performance here, though. You'd have to be paying close attention to discern which card was painting Geralt on your screen with these numbers.
