RS-285 Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of January 31, 2019 on the 8GB Radeon™ RX Vega 64, on a test system comprising of Intel i7 7700K CPU (4.2 GHz), 16GB DDR4 memory, and Windows 10x64.PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (DX11) with the High preset at (1920x1080), when running Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.2.1, the Radeon™ RX Vega 64 scored 61 FPS while Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.2.1 scored 64 FPS. Therefore, in the above comparison, Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.2.1 shows 5% greater performance. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers.
I game at 1440p so no use to me whatsoever. I get that 95% of gamers use 1080p but Vega 64 and now Vega VII are meant for higher resolutions. Unfortunately 1080p doesn't cut it for me.
They have been improving performance 5% here, and 5% there in various drivers over the past year.. it adds up.. also, improved performance isn't normally locked to a resolution. They are just showing the hardware they used and the resolution to derive to their conclusion. They have been doing this for a while now. It's not realistic to think they will magically put out a driver that instantly gives you a 15 to 20% increase..
I also game at 1440p, and the increases, all though suttle are there in the games i play, even when there testing only shows 1080p.
