Tom Clancy's The Division DirectX 12 Performance Review
Published: 16th December 2016 | Source: Ubisoft | Price: |
During our testing, we will be playing The Division using the game's built-in Ultra preset and testing the same in-game sequence using both the game's DirectX 12 and DirectX 11 code paths. Below are our results.
At 1440p we can see some very similar results to our 1080p testing, with Nvidia GPUs seeing decreased performance under DirectX 12 and AMD systems seeing improved system performance.
On the AMD side, we can see that Radeon users see some significant boosts to both minimum and average framerates, resulting in a steadier gameplay experience. On the Nvidia side we see performance decreases on both their Maxwell and Pascal-based GPUs, though only the Maxwell-based GTX 980Ti sees a significant decrease in GPU performance.
