Quake Champions, Prey, For Honor, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
Quake Champions is a game we decided to include last minute and this is the first time we benchmarked this title. Here we see some very competitive results from AMD at 1080p though things became a bit too overwhelming at 4K. Backing down to 1440p we find mixed results, AMD hard the better 1% low while Nvidia peaked a little higher. Overall performance was much of a muchness so another draw.
Prey is yet another game where AMD typically does very well and yet we again find Vega 56 struggling against the GTX 1070. It’s the minimum frame rate, those 1% lows, that look particularly bad at 1080p though by the time we get to 4K the margins are much the same. Again we see, this time at 1440p, that the minimum fps result is an issue for Vega despite the average looking quite good.
Vega 56 and the GTX 1070 again go head to head and deliver pretty much the same results, this time in For Honor. That said while it was a dead heat at 1080p the 1070 pulled ahead at 4K. At 1440p we start to see the 1070 edge ahead but really we are just talking a 1 - 2 fps difference at this realistic resolution for these mid-range to high-end GPUs.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [DX12]
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is another title that we’ve tested using DX12 and this hands the advantage to Vega. AMD won quite comfortably at 1080p and remained ahead for the 4K testing as well. Meanwhile at 1440p the Vega 56 card was 12% faster than the GTX 1070. Though shockingly just 8% faster than the Fury X.
