AMD has managed to easily outperform Nvidia at 4K resolution in the newest Doom game. The tests were done by the folks at GameGPU and carried out on the beta version of the game, so we should keep in mind that this could change in the final version.
The test system was based on an Intel i7 5960x, a Gigabyte UD7 X 99 WiFi motherboard and 32 GB DDR4 RAM at 2666MHz. The nVidia GeForce cards were using the 361.75 drivers while the AMD cards were using Crimos Edition 16.11.1 . The tests were carried out at 1080p resolution, 1440p and 4K. AMD has managed to achieve 60 frames per second on all high-end video cards, these being theR9 290, R9 290x, R9 295×2, R9 Fury X and R9 Nano. NVIDIA GTX 980 Ti received scores below R9 290, which is a little odd. AMD is doing excellent in 1440p resolution: while the nVidia GTX 980 Ti has achieved an average of 51 FPS, the R9 290 sustained an average of 55FPS.
The fact that nVidia has problems in DX 12, specifically with Async Compute, is already known. We are looking forward on how nVidia will fix this issue and what the upcoming tests will look like.
