Now it is time to sum it all up, and put all the video cards head-to-head and see how they lineup when comparing AMD versus NVIDIA video cards in this game.  We are testing in both Vulkan and DX11 on all video cards.  On this page, we will separate them first and start with the high-end video cards at two different settings to give you the best comparison we can.

1440p “Ultimate”

Here are all the AMD and NVIDIA video cards compared to each other at 1440p with “Ultimate” graphics settings.  Naturally, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is going to take the cake here and provides the best gameplay experience.  Let’s look below that.

It seems the GeForce RTX 2080 FE and even the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER are faster than the Radeon RX 5700 XT in this game.  All three are reference video cards, no factory overclocks, and this is how it lines up.

Interestingly the DX11 performance between the Radeon RX 5700 XT and GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER are very close.  However, once you factor in Vulkan the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER boosts well over the Radeon RX 5700 XT under Vulkan and gives us more performance.  Though the Radeon RX 5700 is the slowest, it is still playable as long as you run in Vulkan.

1080p “Ultimate”

To remove any bottlenecks we included a 1080p “Ultimate” preset comparison here.  We also removed the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti since it dominates, and we all know it.  Doing this doesn’t really change the playing field, the RTX 2080 FE and RTX 2070 SUPER are still faster than the Radeon RX 5700 XT. However, when Vulkan is at play the Radeon RX 5700 XT is catching up to the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER very closely here.  The gameplay experience is exactly the same between the two video cards under Vulkan.
