While NVIDIA's GPUs have a big performance advantage in DirectX 11 games, the arrival of games that take advantage of DirectX 12 and Vulkan seems to give the green team headaches.
Over the weekend, id Software rolled out a Vulkan patch for Doom and benchmarks performed by German tech site ComputerBase reveal shocking results.
I pasted the Full HD results below but the site also has 2560 x 1440 and 4K results. While NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1070 gains just 4 percent with Vulkan, AMD's Radeon R9 Fury X gains a massive 66 percent! Similarly, the Radeon RX 480's performance jumps 46 percent by enabling Vulkan.
The lack of hardware support for Async Compute seems to be biting NVIDIA in the ass.
