Total War: Shogun 2 – DirectX 11

Shogun 2 was released last week and features an enhanced version of the Total War engine which uses DirectCompute for depth of field, contact hardening shadows (higher quality) and hardware tessellation.

Testing was performed at 1680×1050 with no anti-aliasing or anisotropic filtering and maximum in game settings.

When we tested Shogun earlier today, as the results above show, the 267.71 driver gave us less than ideal performance from our GTX 590. That seems to have been resolved in 267.84 though as the framerates increase significantly, to a stage where we exceed our dual 6990′s on minimum and maximum framerates.

Here is an example of how the game looks at our tested settings.
