Tom Clancy's The Division DirectX 12 Performance Review

1080p Performance 

During our testing, we will be playing The Division using the game's built-in Ultra preset and testing the same in-game sequence using both the game's DirectX 12 and DirectX 11 code paths. Below are our results. 

As you can see, there is a clear difference between how the DirectX 12 API affects AMD and Nvidia users, with AMD powered GPUs benefiting from the new API in all cases and Nvidia GPUs seeing negative performance differences. 

We can see that Nvidia's older Maxwell-based GPUs suffer from larger performance decreases than their newer Pascal counterparts, which is a trend that is particularly clear when looking at the GTX 980Ti. On the AMD side, we can see that all GPUs tested have a significant performance boost when using the new API, with AMD's hardware outperforming their Nvidia counterparts when using the new API.

Same conclusion as before. AMD are better in DX12. Nvidia still lose performance.Quote

I'd just like to point out.... Since you are testing with a high end cpu and DX12 most famous for reducing cpu stress... why don't you test DX12 vs DX11 on older cpu architectures like bulldozer or ivy/sandy bridge?

Then we might be able to see some great differences about 10 fps or more(?)Quote

Some people on the OCUK forums were saying they got slightly better performance on DX12 with a 1080.


DX11 maxed out settings including HBAO+, HFTS etc... GTX 1080

And then this is my own testing with everything maxed/turned on i.e HBAO+, HFTS etc... at 1440P DX11 and DX12, DX12 giving quite a nice boost with the GTX 1080 -
