DirectX 12 - Ashes of the Singularity
Ashes of the Singularity is a new real-time strategy game set in a future where the technological Singularity and advanced “Post Humans” wage war against each other for the resource Turinium. Ashes of the Singularity redefines the possibilities of RTS with unbelievable scale, provided by Oxide Games’ groundbreaking Nitrous engine.
…and so it begins; first out of the gate – Ashes of the Singularity; the first DirectX 12 title in our benchmark suite. DirectX 12 games which have shown significant use of asynchronous compute have been a strength of AMD recently, however, the Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti does not disappoint and edges out at the top of our chart – NVIDIA have improved the use of this feature in Pascal cards with the DX12 titles. At 1080p, some CPU-bound limitations glare through with the GeForce GTX 1080 coming in slightly under the GeForce GTX 1070 and Radeon R9 Fury X (which would not normally be the case).
Carrying on into 1440p, the Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti barely shows any decrease in framerate over 1080p! This shows that the first result was most likely CPU-bound and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has plenty more in the tank. Looking at the other results, the GeForce GTX 1080, GeForce GTX 1070 and Radeon R9 FuryX show similar strong results compared to each other but are a good 10fps behind the Ti here. The Radeon R9 290 pulls further away from the GeForce GTX 970 showing AMD’s strength in this particular title.
