Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
The area where we perform our test in this 2016 release is in a part of the game known as Golem City. The “augmented ghetto” of the game’s world is incredibly detailed, littered with detritus, and filled with dozens of NPCs, all of which combine to put a serious hurt on both CPUs and graphics cards.
Where the third-generation Ryzens traded blows with their Intel competitors in Crysis, Deus Ex is a different story altogether. Both of the new CPUs take a back seat to all three of our Intel CPUs in this title. I’m not qualified to pass judgment on why, but if you forced me to guess I might suspect that it has something to do with memory latency.
