F1 2016, Deus Ex, Battlefield, Mafia
F1 2016 often provides competitive results and we see this once again when comparing the RX 580 and GTX 1060. This time the RX 580 was able to deliver 7% more performance than the RX 480 at 1080p, which placed it on par with the GTX 1060.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is an AMD sponsored title though as is often the case with time, Nvidia has been able to better optimize their drivers for improved performance. The GTX 1060 is roughly on par with the RX 480 now, though we see that the 9Gbps model has nothing extra to add. As a result the RX 580 enjoyed a reasonably comfortable win, leading the GTX 1060 by a 9% margin.
Here we see that the RX 480 and GTX 1060 are pretty well even at both resolutions. The RX 580 though is able to pull ahead thanks to a 6% performance advantage hitting 91fps on average at 1080p.
As they so often are, The Mafia III numbers are interesting. The Radeon GPUs are clearly faster at 1080p while oddly they struggle to match the GTX 1060 at 1440p. Focusing on the 1080p numbers we see that the RX 480 is 10% faster than the GTX 1060 while the RX 580 is 15% faster. So a clear win for AMD here then, at least at the 1080p resolution anyway.
