Graphical Settings Comparison - Low to Ultra High - GTX 1060 VS RX 480
Now we move into a more in-depth performance comparison of the game's graphical presets, showcasing how demanding Kingdom Come can be at its higher settings, offering almost Crysis-like levels of strain on the system. On pages 4 & 5 you can view the visual differences between these graphical settings.
When comparing AMD's RX 480 and Nvidia's GTX 1060, it is clear that the Radeon GPU comes out on top. The RX 480 offers higher minimum framerates at all settings while providing higher average framerates at all settings except for Ultra High, where Nvidia edges a victory by 0.1 FPS, which is not enough to consider it a real win for Nvidia.
Moving beyond high settings results in huge framerate dips, which are typically not worth the increases in graphical detail that Kingdom Come delivers, though these settings become a lot more playable if settings like shader quality, shadow quality and post-processing quality are reduced to high. These changes offer a much better gameplay experience with a minimal hit to graphical fidelity.
