Decided to run the Ashes of Singularity Benchmark on my system and compare the DX11 vs DX12 results. This is with my dual X5690s and a MSI R9 280X on High settings:

DX11 (high settings):


DX12 (high settings):



As you can see above just switching to DX12 increased my average frames per second by 41.3%. I also noticed DX12 seemed to have less variance in benchmarks as out of the 3 tests I did for each all were within 3% on the average FPS. DX11 had a variance over 10% on the tests with this result being the best.

For reference the same test ran on the minimum graphics settings:

DX11 (low settings):


DX12 (low settings):


With the graphics turned all the way down and keeping the resolution the same DX12 scored an average of 86.6% higher FPS than DX11 on my setup.

That is pretty bad ass going from DX11 to D12. I just wonder why the 380 plus people that viewed this did not comment on it. Must all be Nividia fans jealous there cards don't see that much improvement from DX11 to DX12.

It probably helps their DX11 performance wasn't shit in the first place.

LOL or maybe just maybe AMD actually is much better hardware compliant with DX12 and that is why there is much of a better performance increase.

Why the fanboyism? I just do not understand it from either side. There are for more important things in the world to worry about.

@Mercennarius
i didnt realize this had been there a month, i posted a similar question on the Xeon owners thread earlier today and lo and behold ...twin Xeons and dx12 here.....lush.

Very interesting too especially with my setups.

No fanboy here....i am a Xeon addict.

If going by Maxwell 2, it actually supports a higher feature level than AMD. Not as fast no, but that pretty much sinks your argument about anything to do with compliance.

It's been shown for a while now the GCN architecture benefits from DX12 (async) especially. What people omit is that the Ashes bench on DX12 has no outright performance lead. I believe Nvidia is slightly ahead.
No real news here and with games like Deus Ex Mankind Divided being pushed right back to late 2016, I don't see any cause for any excitement. Each vendor will have new gfx hardware out next year, no doubts each more focussed on DX12.

You can get Ashes to show exactly what you want, and OP thats what you just did on your screenshot.

Youre putting the resolution down(1650x1050) which isent going to do anything execpt getting redicilous high fames. Play it as high as possible with everything turned on, and you will se quite some other munbers. Nobody in their right mind uses a ALFA edition of a game for testing, since thats not how the game eventually will end up being.

Ashes is just a fart in the wind.

Actually no. On that computer that is the highest resolution the monitor allows, thus that is the resolution I ran it on. Both DX11 and DX12 were ran at the same exact settings to show the difference at equal resolution and graphical fidelity. Yes the game is still in early access and not a finished product, but the results are food for thought and interesting none the less, which is why I decided to share them here.

So I just ran the benchmark with the latest update and my new setup (Saphire 290X, higher resolution monitor, 48GB of RAM). Here's DX11 vs DX12 at 1080P and "High" settings:

DX11


DX12


Average frame rate was increased 68.6% going from DX11 to DX12 at 1080P.

Nvidia Fanboys crying about their cards loss in perceived performance due to http://www.overclock.net/t/1569897/...singularity-dx12-benchmarks/400#post_24321843

http://www.overclock.net/t/1569897/...ingularity-dx12-benchmarks/1210#post_24357053

Since Nvidia kinda made up the part where their cards really support AC, since they were doing it in software on the CPU for so long, now the fruition of AMD doing it in hardware is coming with DX12 showing that even a early chepaer card will create better visuals... it may hurt Nvidia AND AMD since consumers with early GCN cards may not need to upgrade.

And still at that resolution, your R9 290X isent really going to shine, thats going to happen at 2560x1440 and up. 1080 is hopefully a thing of the past just like win 7.

So Ashes of the Singularity just received a large update this week (v.70). A few of the MANY listed changes include:

Significant performance improvements (especially in DX12)

Don't draw shadows for MB frames, Re-use Initial frame data for MB frames for detail objects.

Better local sorting of mesh's within an object

Slightly better sort logic for draw_elements

txaa frames using same batch set with different dynamics

Improved performance for plasma whip projectile

RegionRenderer. Now takes color directly in 32bit format. Way less temporary memory, and memory movement.
So of course I decided to run the benchmark again at 1080P and compare DX11 vs DX12 with all fidelity quality settings the same. Here are the results after the latest update:

DX11:


DX12:



With the latest update I saws a 28% increase in average FPS moving to DX12. Also you can see that in both scenarios the game achieves noticeably higher FPS than before the v.70 update. It looks like DX12 performs much better in the "Heavy Batches" sections. Also DX11 registered a maximum of 4,067MB of VRAM during the benchmark while DX12 measured a maximum of 4,338MB.

Decided to compare the multithreading between DX11 and DX12:

DX11:


DX12:





As you can see both DX11 and DX12 can utilize more than 12 threads in this game. DX12 shows a significantly improved resource allocation between threads, while DX11 shows the majority of the work load left to just the primary thread. Adding more than 4 or 6 threads to DX11 would likely not improve performance as 80-90% of the workload is still being sent to just the primary thread. DX12 is clearly benefiting from having at least 12 threads here.
Also notice the difference in system ram usage.

Also notice that DX11 is using significantly more system RAM than DX12 is
Opposite is true, but interesting findings nonetheless. DX12 seems to do really well at least in that game.

I hope the upcoming Totalwar Warhammer will utilize DX12 too. CPU bottleneck in Totalwar series is really annoying.
But I'm not sure Kepler will benefit from DX12 ? Since Kepler optimization in new games is completely shit.

Man, all the useless fanboyism is so tiring. :banghead:

What I'm more interested in is why suddenly a type of architecture introduced years ago by AMD is suddenly being utilized so effectively in the latest version of Windows. I can understand optimizations being made by Microsoft to support some sort of architecture, but I'm just surprised it wasn't some new type of architecture that would force everyone to go buy new video cards. Instead they used something that was already around (GCN). It's just strange.
