Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III
Dialing in Warhammer’s highest detail settings imposes a substantial performance penalty. Its own tooltips claim that the High Anti-Aliasing option (which supplements FXAA by rendering to a higher-res off-screen buffer) can reduce frame rates by 50 to 100%.
Radeon RX Vega 64 lands closer to GeForce GTX 1080 Ti than GTX 1080 in our Warhammer benchmark. All of these cards offer playable performance, though.
Vega 64’s >12% lead over GTX 1080 shrinks to almost 9% at 3840x2160, and GeForce GTX 1080 Ti’s advantage over the new Radeon grows to almost 19%. But we’re still looking at playable performance from all three of those cards.
AMD’s position is made stronger by our presumption that this is a DirectX 11-based game, which usually amounts to a slant towards Nvidia.
