PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Mirror's Edge Catalyst, Mass Effect Andromeda
You can’t do a 20+ gaming benchmark series these days without including PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, could you just imagine the comments section, we mean guy can’t let GTAV go. Anyway a bit of a bloodbath here, AMD clearly has some more driver development work to do. The GTX 1070 storms ahead at 1080p delivering 27% more frames. Vega kind of comes back at 4K but by this point the frame rates are so low it doesn’t matter. Meanwhile at 1440p the 1070 was 24% faster making this a very convincing win for Nvidia.
Mirror's Edge Catalyst
When it comes to hardcore parkour Vega 56 gets around okay, matching the GTX 1070 at 1080p, though it did slip away at 4K. Looking at the 1440p results the 1070 was a few frames faster so another small win for the green team.
Mass Effect Andromeda
Moving on to Mass Effect Andromeda we find Vega 56 trailing the GTX 1070 at both 1080p and 1440p which is a little disappointing. Looking at the 1440p numbers there isn’t much in it but still Vega 56 comes in a few frames slower. Typically AMD is very competitive in this title so another worrying sign for Vega.
