Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War III PC performance review

VRAM Usage

When it comes to VRAM use Dawn of War III is highly scalable, from just over 1GB of VRAM use at 1080p minimum settings to almost 5.5GB at 4K maximum settings.  

In testing, we found that our 4GB R9 Fury X presented no performance issues when running at 4K Max settings due to VRAM use, which means that this game is likely designed to tone down textures in the event of a VRAM overspend, or that the game intentionally uses more VRAM than is required to speed up loading times when using different assets.

Me too! It really shows AMD's driver team has come a long way. That bodes well for Vega.Quote

Anyone else think minimum settings looks kinda close to the texture quality of the original Dawn of War?Quote

AMDs drivers have been great for years. I suspect the performance of this game is due to great optimization for GCNQuote

Well more recently it seems AMD is doing a better job of getting drivers out prior to or the day of a games release.Quote
