Rise of the Tomb Raider DirectX 12 Performance Review
4K Testing with AMD R9 Fury X and Nvidia GTX 980Ti
Moving up to 4K we see AMD’s R9 Fury X and Nvidia’s GTX 980Ti perform very similarly, though in this game Nvidia still hold the performance advantage.Â
Like all previous results we see that both the Fury X and the GTX 980Ti perform worse when using the DirectX 12 API in this title.
It is clear from the results here and on previous pages that DirectX 12 is not a magic bullet that will always deliver more performance than the DirectX 11 API.
Hopefully with further patching and driver releases we will see a more functional implementation of DirectX 12 in Rise of the Tomb Raider the future, but for now we recommend that players stick to using the standard DirectX 11 API. Â
