Doom (Vulkan)

Doom's Vulkan renderer brings every CPU in this bunch more or less on par. Where only the highest-IPC chips of this bunch could push a 170-FPS average under Doom's OpenGL mode, Vulkan lets nearly all of them do it. Check out those remarkably consistent 99th-percentile frame times, as well.

As with Doom's OpenGL mode, none of the CPUs under test here spend more than a breath of time past the 16.7 ms mark. They all do an admirable job keeping under the 8.3 ms threshold, as well. We have to click over to the 6.94 ms mark to see any major differences in CPU performance here, and even then, the Ryzen 5s are right in the mix with Intel's best.
