Benchmarks: Gears of War 4, Titanfall 2, Civilization VI, Call of Duty: Infinite
Gears of War 4 is a DirectX 12 title but it's also an Nvidia sponsored title so unsurprisingly the GTX 1050 comes out ahead, though only by a slim margin. Both GPUs managed around 60fps on average using the medium quality settings so the game still looked quite good while maintaining very playable performance.
Titanfall 2 historically tends to favor AMD and we see a bit of that here. The RX 560 is able to catch the GTX 1050 in this title as both delivered around 70fps with a minimum frame rate of 59fps, so solid performance here from both graphics card camps.
AMD enjoys a decent performance advantage in Civilization VI, though sadly this isn't a game that really requires more than 30fps. That said, the more the merrier and it's great to see the RX 560 flexing in yet another DX12 title, outpacing the GTX 1050 by a 15% margin.
Like Titanfall 2, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is another game that AMD generally does well with. The RX 560 was just a few frames faster than the GTX 1050 here, though performance all around was impressive considering we are using the high quality preset at 1080p.
