Wolfenstein: Youngblood - 1080p Benchmarks

Wolfenstein: Youngblood benchmarked at 1080p is really something else, pushing up the performance of our flagship graphics cards past 250FPS which is simply insane. Check out these results:

Performance Thoughts


If you're looking for 1080p 60FPS performance out of Wolfenstein: Youngblood, then look no further than even the years-old AMD Radeon RX 480. The Polaris-based GPU is still pumping out performance worthy of your dollars in Wolfenstein: Youngblood, with 64FPS average at 1080p and maxed-out settings.

AMD's older Radeon RX 480 beats out the new GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER, the GeForce GTX 1650 (non SUPER), and the new Navi-based Radeon RX 5500 XT. These cards could see gamers playing around with detail settings a little to nail down 60FPS average without an issue.


Sitting in the 60-120 FPS area we have a few graphics cards at 1080p, with a large gap between the Radeon RX 480 and its 64FPS and the Radeon RX 5600 XT (thanks to its new BIOS) with 86FPS average in Wolfenstein: Youngblood. This shows there is still some wiggle room for both companies to nail down the 1080p market with more cards.

The Radeon RX 5600 XT performs well (again, with its new BIOS) at 1080p in Wolfenstein: Youngblood with 86FPS average, while the older-gen Polaris-based Radeon RX 570 is above it with 91FPS. The Polaris awesome sauce doesn't end there, with the Radeon RX 580 a little better with 103FPS and the Radeon RX 590 better again with 113FPS -- all at 1080p.


This is where the fun begins: 120FPS. The first card to breach 120 FPS in Wolfenstein: Youngblood at 1080p is the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER which pushes 132FPS average. The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti manages 2FPS more at 134FPS average, while the HBM2-powered AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 manages 145FPS.

We have the lowest member of the Turing RTX family in NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2060 with 154FPS average in Wolfenstein: Youngblood at 1080p, while the new Navi-powered AMD Radeon RX 5700 pushes a hefty 160FPS average. The older-gen HBM2-based Radeon RX Vega 64 still does great work with 162FPS average at 1080p, while the suped-up GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER manages 174FPS average.


Above 180FPS is a special thing in Wolfenstein: Youngblood, especially if you've got the monitor chops to get there -- remember, there are plenty of 1080p 240Hz gaming monitors on the market now. I wouldn't necessarily recommend getting a 1080p 240Hz gaming monitor for Wolfenstein: Youngblood, but I do enjoy pushing GPUs to their limits and seeing crazy FPS numbers.

NVIDIA begins the above 180FPS game in Wolfenstein: Youngblood at 1080p with its GeForce RTX 2070, while the Navi-powered Radeon RX 5700 XT performs well at 1080p with 184FPS average. Above that we have the 16GB HBM2-powered Vega-based Radeon VII graphics card from AMD at 188FPS average, while the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER pushing 201FPS average.

The two last cards in this 180-240FPS area are the GeForce RTX 2080 with 214FPS average, and then the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER with a huge 221FPS average. 1080p in Wolfenstein: Youngblood really lets these higher-end NVIDIA graphics cards let lose, with nothing on AMD's side capable of breaching 200FPS average at 1080p.

Beyond 240FPS

Oh yeah -- 240FPS and above is juicy, with NVIDIA's two flagship Turing-based graphics cards the only ones on the market capable of driving Wolfenstein: Youngblood at 240FPS+ with everything maxed out.

We have NVIDIA's flagship GeForce RTX 2080 Ti pushing an eye-melting 252FPS average in Wolfenstein: Youngblood at 1080p, while the even-more-insane TITAN RTX and its holy-crap amount of 24GB of GDDR6 memory pumping all the way up to 257FPS average. Crazy results here, folks.
