Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
Here's another new game we've added to the list, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. Unfortunately as this is a new title and it does use the Unreal 4 engine, AMD has some drier work to do here as well. Vega 56 was 10% slower at 1440p when compared to the GTX 1070 and again just a few percent faster than the old Fury X.
Another older game we've brought back for this one is Crysis 3 and despite it's age AMD also have some driver work to do here as well. Shockingly Vega 56 was actually slower than the Fury X at 1080p, though it did pull ahead at 1080p. That said it still trailed the Fury X at 1440p as it turned in a GeForce GTX 1060 like performance.
Tom Clancy's The Division [DX12]
Okay so now we're getting into the low level API testing and first up we have The Division using DX12. Here Vega 56 looks very impressive racing ahead at 1080p and maintaining that strong lead even at 4K. This is also seen at 1440 where Vega 56 delivered an impressive 94fps on average making it 18% faster than the GTX 1070.
The Hitman results are interesting as Vega 56 looks great at 1080p but when we jump to 4K things settle down and now AMD is only able to match the GTX 1070. This is also true for the 1440p resolution as both Vega 56 and GTX 1070 average the same 117 fps.
