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 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 does not disappoint and comes out comfortably on top showing that NVIDIA have improved the use of this feature in Pascal cards with the DX12 titles.
Carrying on into 1440p, I had to double-check my results; the Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 barely shows any decrease in framerate over 1080p! This shows that the first result was most likely CPU-bound and the GTX 1080 had more to offer. Looking at the other results, the Radeon R9 290 pulls further away from the GeForce GTX 970 showing AMD’s strength in this particular title.
