Well... one thing is sure... I won't buy the game now :shadedshu:, the thing is too demanding for my system.

Damn, I need to upgrade my 780 Ti SLI just because of the 3GB RAM limitation. I'm even noticing it at 1080p on CoD: Advanced Warfare when I turn the quality settings up, especially anti-aliasing and that's a 2014 game. Basically, the cards run out of RAM before they run out of performance. Quite sad to have to consider replacement just for this, really.

@W1zzard Thanks for the Performance tests!

I see one error. You list the 980Ti as 8GB in the charts.

Looks like I will have to stick to "High" and not "Ultra" with my 980Ti so I can play at 60fps. Should still look awesome though! :D

Yeah, this probably isn't going to run too well on my 7950.

I love these game reviews!

Also, at High settings, RX480 beats GTX1060 by 10 FPS and 7 at Ultra!? Was DXMD made with some AMD voodoo?

It's the same reason why the GTX 1060 beats the RX 480 in Rise of the Tomb Raider or The Witcher 3 IMO. AMD's GCN cards excel at general compute tasks since they have relatively more SIMD FP units than Nvidia's chips. So when a lot of the post processing and simulation effects are done using custom shaders that utilize these SIMD units, AMD's cards tend to do better.

The GTX 1060 does much worse against the RX 480 in Doom using the Vulkan renderer:

Hmm, I was waiting for this game. looks like I'll need to sell my watercooled 980ti and buy a 1080 to get decent frame rates at 1440!!! Argg.....

Nvidia cards age horribly, and the 480 was 32% stronger than the 1060 in Vulkan - these are pretty much the exact results I expected.

What is crazy to me is that the 1070 is only like 20% stronger than the 480 in DX11!!! In DX12 they may be equal (Hence why AMD doesn't think it needs ultra cards yet).

The 1080 that won't even be stronger than the Fury X when the DX12 patch hits?! Frankly speaking you are better off waiting for the next Fury or just dealing with lowered settings.

You do know this game uses the same engine as Hitman right?

So what comes after Polaris (480) then?

Haha and? It also is the latest game with some of the best graphics, and again it isn't even using DX12 yet (Hitman only got these results with DX12 in use).

Maybe BF1 will prove that this isn't the new normal, but I highly doubt that.

481?

:) I'd expect at 490 by the end of the year, hopefully sooner.

490 will almost definitely be out by the end of the year, but I think it will be another GDDR card; unfortunately I don't want anything but Vega with HBM...

So far it looks like RX 400 will only consist of polaris (10,11) and Vega (10,11 too). Since we know that th RX 490 is a confirmed name, it will likely be vega (hence with HBM), since AMD didn't talk about a third family of chip.

It's good to see a game putting a real challenge to current GPUs. Necessity is the mother of invention and we are going to need more powerful GPUs for max at 1440p and certainly at 4K if this continues. Time to bump up the performance a notch or two Nvidia/AMD.
