10/31/2016 Numerous new mods added, and a new batch posted to get testing on.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition
And here we go, a whole new Skyrim to mod re-tooled for modern graphics hardware. The modding interface could use some work, but it's great to see Bethesda and the mod authors working together to have some really great mods available at launch.
The opening carriage ride with no mods, tweaks, or optimizations. Just the defaults selected by the game.
1920x1080 Detail: High AA: TAA (Best quality) VRAM FPS Min 1669.0 26.0 Max 1968.0 60.0 Ave 1864.5 43.3 STDev 91.8 9.6
A nice place to start from in my opinion. As a general rule I am aiming for a solid 30fps or better.
