Deus Ex: Mankind Divided DirectX 12 Performance Review
Published: 8th September 2016 | Source: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided | Price: |
When playing the game at 1080p we can see that the game does not gain much performance on most hardware, with Nvidia's GTX 1070 Founders Edition and the GTX 1060 Strix only gaining a small amount of additional performance.
On the AMD side, we can see that the RX 480 and the R9 Fury X has some larger performance gains, particularly when it comes to the game's minimum framerate, making the game seem much smoother. The largest gains can be seen on the AMD R9 Fury X, though it is expected that the game will receive additional performance enhancements in the future.
Looking at Nvidia's older GTX 980Ti we can see that this is the only GPU that we have tested that actually loses performance when running in DirectX 12. It seems that Nvidia's new Pascal architecture is much more capable in DirectX 12 than Maxwell, which is something that we should expect to see more of moving forward.
