Deus Ex: Mankind Divided DirectX 12 Performance Review

1080p Testing

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's Direct 12 Patch is out now

1080p Testing


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.

Just started playing this. I'm in the town trying to figure out what to do to get to the book store.

Initially I tried running it at 1080p ultra with the Fury X DX12. Not a good idea. Any way, dropped to "on" for the settings (instead of Ultra) and changed the textures to high. Looks a tiny bit fuzzier mind. Also turned off sharpness as apparently it has the biggest CPU penalty. I'm only running a 2ghz CPU.

Nice solid 60 FPS with the occasional small stutter to low 40s. Seems like a decent game, if only I could figure out where to go.Quote
