Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III (DirectX 11)
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%.
Vega proves its mettle once again in Dawn of War III, essentially matching a GeForce GTX 1080’s frame rate and demonstrating lower frame time variance. Through our benchmark, you’re looking at roughly 17%-higher performance than EVGA’s overclocked GeForce GTX 1070.
That lead shrinks to ~14% at 3840x2160.
Even Radeon R9 Fury X is faster than GeForce GTX 1070 in this AMD-sponsored title, despite its 4GB of HBM.
