Doom, Total War: Warhammer, Rise of the Tomb Raider
The only Vulkan title to be included is of course Doom and here we see at 1080p, Vega 56 is able to hit the 200 fps frame cap. Even at 4K frame rates still remain above 60 fps at at all times and AMD takes the win. Looking at the 1440p results we see Vega is able to deliver 10% more performance which isn't bad, though given the RX 580 is almost 20% faster than the GTX 1060, we was expecting more to be honest.
Total War: Warhammer [DX12]
Total War: Warhammer was also tested using the DirectX 12 API and here Vega 56 again beat the GTX 1070 by a decent margin. In fact, Vega was 17% faster at 1440p though just 9% faster when comparing the minimum frame rate.
Rise of the Tomb Raider [DX12]
Finally we have Rise of the Tomb Raider and again testing was conducted using DX12. That said keep in mind that this is an Nvidia sponsored title and as such has always favored the green team, even with using the low level API. At 1440p performance is much the same and both Vega 56 and the GTX 1070 average 64 fps.
