Radeon RX Vega: Benchmarks galore
The Division, a gorgeous third-person shooter/RPG that mixes elements of Destiny and Gears of War, kicks things off with Ubisoft’s Snowdrop engine. We test the game in DirectX 11 mode.
Vega 56 trounces the GTX 1070 Founders Edition by roughly 13 percent across all resolutions. Chalk that up as a solid win for AMD. The air-cooled Vega 64 and GTX 1080 Founders Edition essentially trade blows, with the liquid-cooled Vega getting a decent 7 to 9 percent uplift from its cooler temperatures and higher clock speeds. The similarly priced GTX 1080 Ti blew away all comers though, and—spoiler alert again—will continue to do so without testing.
Minimum frame rates aren’t listed in this review. We tend to mention that metric only when it’s an issue, and it wasn’t. All of these cards pump out smooth gameplay in the games we tested.
