Call of Duty Infinite Warfare PC Performance Review

RX 480 VS GTX 1060 - Low, Medium, High and Ultra Settings

 

When running Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare on our RX 480 Strix and GTX 1060 Strix we can see that a steady 60+FPS is easily achievable at high settings at 1440p, which is great for a modern PC release.  

We can see below that the game prefers AMD's RX 480 to Nvidia's GTX 1060, with the AMD GPU having much higher average and minimum framerates. Both GPUs move under the steady 60+ FPS range at Ultra settings 1440p, though the RX 480 sits very close to 60 when it comes to minimum framerates.

480 beats a 980ti at 1440p? Well that was a shocking result to come by. Has COD always favored AMD like this?

Regarding vram consumption, many many games run like that. Use as much as possible even if it's not needed. It's faster to pull from memory than it is to reprocess something, think this is called hardware/shader/etc streaming or something like that.Quote

I'm wondering this as well. The last COD favoured AMD as well, but I don't know whether that's true of issues going further back.

On a different note, I like that your review isn't just a slugfest of hatred. The game clearly deserves praise for its excellent performance and options, but the terrible decision (if it was indeed a 2-way decision) to split the community really puts a downer on everything. Also, I wish the graphics and level design had a little more... guts. It just looks so safe and dull at this stage.Quote

Funny how the 1070 is all the way up top like it should be, whereas the 980ti cant even beat a mid ranged gpu...Quote

It's a telltale sign of how unoptimized either the game or the drivers are as an RX-480 should not be beating a 980 Ti at all at anything.Quote

There is a problem with this test.... with a 980ti (@1480/7600) I have many more frames at 3440x1440 and all settings on max. about 80 fpsQuote
