Benchmarks: Grand Theft Auto V, Ashes of the Singularity

The GeForce GTX 1080 might only be 16% faster than the Titan X in GTA V, but that margin makes all the difference. We now have a single GPU graphics card capable of ~60 fps at 4K with frame dips never dropping below the 50 fps mark. The GTX 1080 maintained a handy 31% lead over the Fury X here as well.

The Ashes of the Singularity gives us a glimpse of DirectX 12 performance, though we should note that this is a CPU intensive benchmark and not the best for measuring GPU performance.

For now however it's the best DX12 test we have. Anyway, when running the game on the DX11 API the GTX 1080 was 24% faster than the Fury X. However, once we switch to DX12 that figure changes significantly and now the GTX 1080 and Fury X are neck and neck.

It is difficult to draw any concrete conclusions here about the 1080’s async compute performance and we are in desperate need of some more quality DX12 titles.
