Let's take a detour out of the big leagues and into Rocket League. This popular esports title runs on the Unreal Engine. We pushed the resolution up to 1920x1080 here and used the game's highest-quality appearance settings.
Rocket League proves a close match for Pascal and Vega. The Ryzen 5 2400G closely shadows the GT 1030 in both performance potential and delivered smoothness, while the Ryzen 3 2200G commendably turns in 99% of its frames a couple milliseconds under the critical 33.3-ms mark. The GT 1030 ultimately provides the most fluid and smooth gameplay here by a small margin among our entry-level contenders.
Some spikiness in our frame-time graphs translates into time past 50 ms on the board for both Ryzen APUs' Vega IGPs, suggesting one or two noticeable hitches in gameplay. Happily, neither Vega IGP noticeably spends much time past 33.3 ms. We have to draw the line at 16.7 ms before any of the Ryzen APUs or the GT 1030 give us cause for concern. Here, the GT 1030 spends three fewer seconds in total than the Vega 11 on frames that take over 16.7 ms to render, while the Vega 8 spends over five more seconds yet compared to its more powerful sibling.
