A lot has been said about Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor‘s requirements on PC, but today we can check out its performance on a rig sporting a rather high end GTX 970 with 4 gigabytes of video RAM.

YouTube user teoKrazia ran the in-game benchmark at maximum settings, and clocked an average of 73 frames per seconds, a maximum of almost 378 and the occasional dip down to 42.

The full hardware profile of the PC used is as follows:

Intel i5 2500K@4.4, GeForce GTX 970 Twin FROZR V with FoceWare 344.11 WHQL drivers, 8 GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 MHz.

Incidentally, the benchmark also looks absolutely lovely. You can check the video out below.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
