VRMARK Cyan Room DX12 Benchmark - AMD VS Nvidia

We have tested this new benchmark with pretty much every GPU that we could get a hold of, giving us a look at the performance of not just most of AMD/Nvidia's modern lineup but also a few of each company's older offerings. This will help us see how much this benchmark benefits from each manufacturer's latest GPU architectures, as some older cards lack support for certain advanced features.   

Looking at the Nvidia hardware on this graph we can see that older Maxwell hardware sits far behind their Pascal counterparts, with Nvidia's GTX 1070 sitting far ahead of the company's last generation flagship, the GTX 980Ti. In most games, especially older DX11 titles, both of these GPUs offer fairly similar performance, with the GTX 1070 Founders Edition usually taking a small lead. This time the GTX 1070 Founders Edition offers a performance boost of around 900 points, which is a performance increase of around 19.5% performance boost.

When comparing competing AMD and Nvidia hardware, we can see that AMD has won out here in every case, with the R9 380 easily surpassing the GTX 960, the RX 480 offering a roughly 10% performance boost over the GTX 1060 6GB and the RX Vega series offering a lot more performance than Nvidia's price competition the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080. 

Despite AMD advantage in this benchmark, Nvidia still holds the top position here, with AMD lacking any performance or price competitor to Nvidia's GTX 1080 Ti.  

Looking at the GTX 960 and R9 380, or the GTX 980 Ti and R9 Fury X, we can see that AMD's older hardware has clearly aged better in this test, though this is due to AMD's forward-thinking design with GCN, offering advanced features that were inaccessible in DirectX 11. Most modern games are designed with older APIs however, and not many developers have moved over the DirectX 12 yet, so this kind of advantage is rarely seen in shipping titles.

I managed a smidge over 8100 with average FPS of 176 with my Vega 64 Quote

Overclocked I assume?Quote

Yep, Only a little though, Core was running at 1520 so nowhere nears it's max and memory was running at 1100, Needs a waterblock to get its rated 1620 boost clock it seems.Quote

This is the kind of positioning I wanted Vega to be in games. Quote

To be fair Vega does do well and nips at the heels of the 1080 Ti when games take advantage of it's hardware i.e Forza 7.Quote
