Rise of the Tomb Raider DirectX 12 Performance Update

1440p Testing with AMD R9 Fury X and Nvidia GTX 980Ti
At 1440p we can see that both sides gain performance with this new DirectX 12 patch, with Nvidia achieving a higher minimum framerate at all settings and AMD achieving both higher minimum and average framerates.
AMD's R9 Fury X gains the most performance from this new update, with most of the performance benefits coming from Asynchronous Compute but the higher minimum framerates achieved wit this update on Nvidia hardware does improve the DirectX 12 gaming experience on Nvidia hardware as well.
This new update makes AMD and Nvidia's GPU performance very similar under DirectX 12, making the performance data nowhere near as one sided as the original DirectX 12 data from earlier this year, showing that Nixxes has spent a lot of time optimizing their DirectX 12 version of the game for all hardware, not just Nvidia's.
