Wildlands, Mass Effect, Dawn of War III
Released in March 2017, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands is a demanding open world title, but at 1080p we saw respectable frame rates using the very high quality preset. Once again the RX 580 was just a few frames faster than the RX 480, here we see a 5% bump from what is essentially a mild factory overclock.
The 9Gbps GTX 1060 is even more underwhelming though the standard GTX 1060 was still able to best the RX 580 in this title. That said the margins were slim and 1080p while there was nothing separating them at 1440p.
Also released in March, we have Mass Effect: Andromeda and like For Honor this game provides very competitive results. Performance at 1080p using the ultra quality preset was good though the game did feel a bit laggy at 1440p on all graphics cards tested.
Finally, the last game tested is also the most recently added to our battery of benchmarks: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III. This title was tested with the latest AMD driver which advertised a 7% performance boost for the RX 580. The Radeon GPUs were most impressive when looking at the minimum frame rate as the RX 580 was 13% faster than the GTX 1060 when comparing the minimum result.
