While AMD Vega release might have been a disaster but the graphics cards themselves aren’t that bad at all. Here we are going to look at the fact that AMD Vega cards are getting better as more and more titles are coming out. With each new title the cards perform better and better and here we are going to see how well the cards perform in CoD WWII, Wolfenstein II, Star Wars BF2, Destiny 2, Shadow of War Etc.
There was a lot of hype surrounding AMD Vega but at launch, we did not get what we expected. Fortunately, things are getting better and here we are going to take a look at how well the AMD Vega cards perform in modern titles that have just come out. There have been a couple of tweaks made to the cards via software updates and driver support.
Call of Duty: World War 2 Benchmarks
The AMD Vega graphics cards are for the enthusiast market and that is why we will only be looking at 1440p and 4K performance. These cards are more than capable of running all these games at 1080p so it is no use making comparisons at that resolution. You can check out benchmarks of Call of Duty: World War 2 below:
You can see here that the GTX 1080 Ti has the lead but the AMD Vega cards can still manage to keep up. The difference is lower at 4K as compared to 1440p. Most of these cards are able to run the game at 60 FPS at both 1440p as well as 4K.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is one of the most anticipated titles of the year and here we are going to take a look at the benchmarks of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus at 1440p as well as 4K.
Only the GTX 1080 Ti is able to run the game at 60 FPS 4K but if you do some tweaks then the AMD Vega 64 should also be able to run the game at 60 FPS 4K as well. All graphics cards perform well at 1440p and that is as expected. At 4K the AMD Vega 64 beats the GTX 1080 and the AMD Vega 56 beats the GTX 1070 Ti.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 Benchmarks
There has been a lot of controversy surrounding Star Wars Battlefront 2 and you can read about it here. Putting that to a side here is how well the AMD Vega graphics cards perform in the game as compared to graphics cards from Nvidia.
At 4K we see that the AMD Vega cards beat the rest of the bunch excluding the GTX 1080 Ti. Even the little brother AMD Vega 56 manages to beat the GTX 1080 as well as the GTX 1070 Ti. It should be noted that only the GTX 1080 Ti was able to run the game at 4K 60 FPS but that can be sorted out with a bit of tweaking.
Destiny 2 Benchmarks
Unlike the console version of the game, Destiny 2 PC features uncapped FPS and support for 4K 60 FPS gameplay with HDR. This makes the PC the best platform to play the game for enthusiasts that live on the bleeding edge even though the game is considered to be a console shooter first. Let’s see how well the game runs on both AMD and Nvidia hardware.
At 4K again, the AMD Vega GPUs manage to outperform the GTX 1080 and 1070, You can check out all the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti cards that have been confirmed ahead of launch. At the highest settings at 4K no card is able to get to 60 FPS but that is alright as you will be able to do so by using the high preset. At 4K resolution, you will hardly be able to tell the difference.
Shadow of War Benchmarks
Shadow of War is also one of the most anticipated games of the year and apart from the microtransactions, the game did deliver. Here you can see how well the game runs on both AMD and Nvidia graphics at 1440p as well as 4K.
You can see that none of the graphics cards can run the game at 4K 60 FPS but note that the AMD Vega 64 beats the Nvidia GTX 1080 and the AMD Vega 56 beats the GT 1070 Ti.
Let us know what you think about these benchmarks and whether or not you think that AMD Vega graphics cards are getting better with time.
