4. Brief schemes
In the first pair of pivot charts, we’ll evaluate the performance difference between the AMD Radeon RX 480 and its predecessor the Radeon R9 380X represented by the ASUS STRIX R9 380X Gaming, the results of which are taken in each game as a reference point, and the u200bu200bFPS average of today’s test hero is delayed as a percentage of them.
Basically, the AMD Radeon RX 480 shows good performance gains over the Radeon R9 380X in almost all games. Except for the abnormally low scores of the Radeon R9 380X in the DiRT Rally game, the Hitman is particularly telling in this respect, with the Radeon RX 480, with twice the amount of memory and a faster graphics processor, ahead of 62 to 83% over its predecessor. On average u200bu200b in all games, the Radeon RX 480 is 27-31% faster.
Next, let’s check out the look of the Radeon RX 480 on the background of the Sapphire NITRO R9 390 OC Tri-X with the same amount of video memory, but with an old Hawaiian GPU. By the way, the cost of the original versions of the Radeon R9 390 has now fallen to the level of the new Radeon RX 480, so this comparison will be quite appropriate and appropriate.
Well, we see how the Radeon RX 480 could not beat the Radeon R9 390. The only exceptions were Rainbow Six: Siege and the anti-aliasing mode in Hitman. On average u200bu200b, in all tests, the new version lags by 10-11% with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and by 14-15% at a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.
Finally, the most important and interesting pair of pivot charts: a performance comparison of the AMD Radeon RX 480 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 – two graphics cards released to face each other for two weeks.
The advantage of a graphics card with an NVIDIA GPU is obvious, except for Hitman again. In general, we can not help but note the trend that when moving from the oldest to the latest games (top to bottom), the performance of video cards diminishes, and the Radeon RX 480 does not look at all as “rough boy” as it seemed at first. However, in our beta gaming group, it turned out that the Radeon RX 480, on average u200bu200b, lags behind the GeForce GTX 1060 by 13.7-14.7% with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and by 14.1-15.0% with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.
