Wolfenstein: Youngblood 1440p Performance

For Wolfenstein: Youngblood we are performing a manual run-through at the beginning of the “Riverside” mission.  There is intense firefights, lighting, fires, explosions, particles, and graphics with plenty of NPCs as we blow through them all.

For our second round of Wolfenstein: Youngblood performance comparisons, we are testing this game at 2560×1440 which is 1440p.  We have the game set to the “Mein Leben!” Graphics Preset which is the highest in-game settings.  NVIDIA Adaptive Shading is on the default “Balanced” mode and ASYNC Compute is turned on for every video card.

On this graph, we have the performance shown from fastest to slowest video card.  At 1440p we are starting to see a bit more where the GPU matters in this game.  Now only the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti offer performance averaging over 100 FPS at this resolution.  Everything else now falls under 100 FPS.  The AMD Radeon VII is still sitting right in-between the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER and GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER.  The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT is also sitting once again right between the GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER.  This time it’s a little bit closer to RTX 2060 SUPER performance. 

The AMD Radeon RX 5700 still trails, but not too far behind.  At 74 average FPS, the AMD Radeon RX 5700 is still very playable at “Mein Leben!” settings at 1440p.  That means every video card here is at their “Highest Playable” settings.
