Ashes of the Singularity
Ashes of the Singularity ($40 on Steam), running on Oxide’s custom Nitrous engine, was an early standard-bearer for DirectX 12. Many months later it’s still the premier game for seeing what next-gen graphics technologies have to offer. Nvidia drivers have greatly improved GeForce performance in Ashes over the past several months. We test the game using the High graphics setting, as the wildly strenuous Crazy and Extreme presets aren’t reflective of real-world usage scenarios.
This game traditionally favored Radeon hardware, but after a slew of DirectX 12 driver improvements by Nvidia, the GTX 1070 Ti trounces the Vega 56 and matches Vega 64 in performance. The difference is even more pronounced if you don’t have Windows 10 and thus can’t utilize DX12. In DirectX 11, the GTX 1070 Ti beats Vega 56 by nearly 20 fps. Hot damn.
