Deus Ex: Mankind Divided DirectX 12 Performance Review

Moving up to 1440p we can see a similar trend to our 1080p results, with AMD's RX 480 and R9 Fury X gaining some noteworthy performance boosts, particularly the R9 Fury X when it comes to minimum framerates.
At this resolution, we can see that Nvidia's Pascal GPUs deliver similar performance in DirectX 11 and DirectX 12, with the Maxwell powered GTX 980Ti losing performance when moving to the new API.
It is clear from these results that this beta API update is nowhere near ready for public release, as typically we see larger performance gains when moving to this new API, especially in GPUs which support Asynchronous Compute.
Performance wise we can see in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided that AMD delivers the best GPU performance in DirectX 12, with the RX 480 outperforming the Nvidia GTX 1060 and the R9 Fury X outperforming the GTX 1070. If we had a GTX 1080 to test it would almost definitely top the charts, but AMD rules the roost when it comes to price-performance in Deus Ex.
