Wolfenstein: Youngblood - 4K Benchmarks

Wolfenstein: Youngblood benchmarked at 4K is where all the fun is at, with nothing AMD has on the market capable of driving the game past 80FPS. NVIDIA has a stack of cards ready to go just that, and even right up to 120FPS and beyond. Check out the results below:


Performance Thoughts

30 - 60FPS

Wolfenstein: Youngblood at 4K is the most punishing test yet, where it all starts with AMD's new Navi-based Radeon RX 5500 XT and its average performance of just 21FPS. This isn't a desirable result at all, with 30FPS minimum something I'd be aiming for to play the game (somewhat) enjoyably.

AMD's older-gen Polaris-based Radeon RX 480 fits the job perfectly, offering up Wolfenstein: Youngblood at 4K 30FPS (just -- with 31FPS average). Up from there we have the AMD Radeon RX 570 with 34FPS average, the new Navi-based Radeon RX 5600 XT with 38FPS average, a tie in performance with the previous-gen Radeon RX 580 at 38FPS.

The slightly faster Radeon RX 590 manages 42FPS average at 4K in Wolfenstein: Youngblood, but this is where the boys get separated from the men at 4K -- AMD takes a big leap between its Radeon RX 590 at 42FPS average at 4K, right up to the HBM2-powered Radeon RX Vega 56 with its much-improved 57FPS average.

60 - 90FPS

Starting off the 60FPS and above league we have the Navi-based Radeon RX 5700 with 65FPS average, a great result for 4K gaming on the second-fast Navi graphics card AMD has on its roster... however, it ties with the previous-gen Vega-based Radeon RX Vega 64 for 65FPS at 4K.

The full Navi GPU in the Radeon RX 5700 XT pumps away at 73FPS average, just 2FPS behind the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER with 75FPS. The AMD Radeon VII and GeForce RTX 2070 are virtually tied for performance at 4K with 78FPS, and 79FPS average, respectively -- while the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER hits 88FPS average.

90 - 120FPS

The largest test here is above 90FPS and into the 120FPS average territory, where NVIDIA has 4 cards capable of this and AMD isn't anywhere near it. The closest AMD Radeon graphics card doesn't even breach 80FPS at 4K, with NVIDIA kicking things off with its GeForce RTX 2080 and 96FPS average.

From there, we have the suped-up GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER with 100FPS average -- while the flagship GeForce RTX 2080 Ti performs beautifully at 119FPS average (just 1FPS away from 120FPS average) while $2499 buys you 125FPS at 4K in Wolfenstein: Youngblood, a truly momentous effort from Turing here.
