Rise of the Tomb Raider DirectX 12 Performance Update

1440p Testing with AMD R9 Fury X and Nvidia GTX 980Ti

 

At 1440p we can see that both sides gain performance with this new DirectX 12 patch, with Nvidia achieving a higher minimum framerate at all settings and AMD achieving both higher minimum and average framerates.  

AMD's R9 Fury X gains the most performance from this new update, with most of the performance benefits coming from Asynchronous Compute but the higher minimum framerates achieved wit this update on Nvidia hardware does improve the DirectX 12 gaming experience on Nvidia hardware as well. 

This new update makes AMD and Nvidia's GPU performance very similar under DirectX 12, making the performance data nowhere near as one sided as the original DirectX 12 data from earlier this year, showing that Nixxes has spent a lot of time optimizing their DirectX 12 version of the game for all hardware, not just Nvidia's.

Not played it for a while but based of my experience, SLI does not offer better frame rates in terms of max but should offer a slightly higher, minimum and average.

I might give it a try next week and see what the Frame Rate is like, as before they started patching the game, at 4K maxed out I was hitting up to 40fps with SLI 980Ti's but on average it was 30fps so no better, than a single card.

When they started patching it the performance dropped in terms of smoothness etc, it was turned in to a stuttery mess.

Are you just running the inbuilt benchmark tool with the settings left on the presets, such as High etc?

Also incase you are using it, turn off shadowplay as that affects the performance based off my experience by up to 15%.Quote

Our benchmarks were done in gameplay, not using the benchmarking tool using the presets stated in the review.

In our testing we do not have the Geforce Experience or AMD Raptr installed.Quote
