This page is a work-in-progress. It is not complete, nor is it organized very well yet.
10/31/2016 Numerous new mods added, and a new batch posted to get testing on.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition[edit | edit source]

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.

Inital Benchmark

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.
