    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.

      1. Igor Zivkovic says:

        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.
