Rise of the Tomb Raider (DirectX 12)
Rise of the Tomb Raider's DX12 mode results in another tight matchup for our contestants. The RX Vega 64 can't quite catch the GTX 1080, but the Vega 56 delivers a slightly more fluid experience than the GTX 1070 while turning in virtually the same 99th-percentile frame time.
Those 99th-percentile frame times don't tell the whole story for the RX Vega 56 and the GTX 1070, though. For that, we have to turn to our time spent beyond 16.7-ms threshold. Here, the Vega 56 spends nearly a second less on tough frames compared to the GTX 1070. Both the GTX 1080 and the RX Vega 64 spend only imperceptible amounts of time on tricky frames, as well, although the GTX 1080 maintains its slight edge.
