    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has a decent in-game benchmark (under Extras menu, if I recall). Very demanding game on the GPU side, so worth adding.

  • The_Last_Metroid

    Sleeping dogs has a benchmark! At least the definitive edition :)

  • Thanks for keeping that list updated. Forza Motorsport 7 has a built-in benchmark. Happy New Year!

    • No worries, and thanks for contributing! I’ll add that now :-)

    Hi William, check the FINAL FANTASY XV Official Benchmark, you may include it too.

    • Thanks, will do!

        Not to sound as FF fan (which I’m not :) ), but I love testing any benchmark on my low end configuration and found out here is another FF benchmark: FINAL FANTASY XIV: Stormblood, if you are interested: it’s released on April 28, 2017.

    • Perfect, I’ve added it!
