    Ah, finally. :p

    Decent performance overall. Big gap between 470 and 1050ti, different class of cards.

    I dont see why would anyone want to run this game using dx11 renderer when dx12+async offers more performance even on nvidia cards.

    Dx12 done right?

    Why not put the GTX 970, which is the most used card according to Steam?

    Interesting fact on the CPU side. This game performs better on a 6c/6t than 4c/8t CPUs.

    One more reason to wait for Ryzen.

    Does this title support Dx12 MultiGPU for Nvidia cards?

    Thanks Hilbert. So this is more in line with the pcgameshardware results than the GameGPU review.

    Pure trolling. Its on par with the 470. So the 470 and all below it are garbage too?

    Careful Zero. Just becouse you have couple of Fury cards does not mean everyhing below it is garbage.

    Great review Hilbert. Good to see a title where both camps nvidia and amd video cards do benefit from DX12 and Async compute. This game loves more cores on the cpu side of things , hence 6 core or 8 core CPUs it's the way to go the way i see it. More and more new games do benefit from that , hence in my opinion for people upgrading soon need to understand the sweet spot is 6c12t or 8c12t cpu if you really want to be future proof do not go the 4 core route.

    Or that finally one of the devs makes use of the hexacores that have been around with Intel for so long :rolleyes:
    But yeah, first fps that I've seen that seems to like more than four cores for some real advantages.

    Yes indeed it does and it's faster than dx11 sli.
