AMD is the clear winner with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, with performance that rivals NVIDIA's latest and greatest - and at much cheaper price points, too. If we consider the Radeon RX 470 can be found on Amazon for around $199, and that NVIDIA sells its GeForce GTX 1060 Founders Edition for $299, that gives AMD an incredible win with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
The Radeon RX 470 is capable of 42FPS average in Mankind Divided at 1080p, so with a few detail adjustments, you could hit 60FPS average. NVIDIA's own GeForce GTX 1060 Founders Edition pushes 37FPS average, which has AMD in the lead without a problem. The lead is extended with the RX 480 at 1080p, with 46FPS average.
The older, hotter, more power hungry Radeon R9 390X has just 1FPS more than the new, Polaris-based RX 480 - a huge improvement over the years for AMD, and now with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
Increasing the resolution to 2560x1440 still has AMD performance sitting in a very impressive place, with around 30FPS average for its Radeon RX 470, Radeon RX 480, and Radeon R9 390X. NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 performs quite strongly at 1440p with 44FPS average, so again - with some adjustments to the in-game visual settings, the GTX 1080 could reach 60FPS average without a problem.
In wrapping things up, AMD is the clear champion here with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and that lead should only improve with the DX12 patch. AMD has been working closely with Eidos Montreal on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and it has paid off - one of the biggest games of the year, and AMD is the performance leader in it.
If we're seeing this type of dominance in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, it'll be interesting to see where we find ourselves in October when Battlefield 1 launches. EA and DICE have been working hand-in-hand with AMD with Battlefield 1, so I'm excited to see what type of performance gains AMD will have over NVIDIA when Battlefield 1 launches soon.
Next up: Multi-GPU battles in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and I'll also throw some more cards into the benchmarking mix like the Pascal-based Titan X. I'm also going to try and get some 3440x1440 results in Mankind Divided, too. Stay tuned, folks!
