AMD’s Radeon Vega Frontier Beats Nvidia’s GTX 1080 in 4K Test Playing DOOM

DOOM_20160516014709

There’s no doubt that id Software’s DOOM is one of the most beautiful games in recent years. It’s a game that is – artistically speaking – one of the most demanding games out there to date. It’s a game that pushes PC hardware to the limits when it comes to 4K gaming as many know. It is even a game that has become one to benchmark your 4K PC builds with if you want to know what your computer can handle.

Standing as one of the most optimized games out there, DOOM without a doubt will demand a lot out of your hardware, and will continue to do so as PC gamers prep for 4K gaming in the future. So what does YouTuber Redman84 do? He decides to benchmark the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier and puts it to the test against Nvidias GTX 1080 and GTX 1080ti. The results? The Froniter absolutely handles DOOM in 4K resolutions like a champ. You can see the video down below.

The downside to all this? The Vega Frontier is not meant for consumer use. It’s a workstation card, which means we’ll need to wait for its consumer counterpart to launch, and hopefully press close to the same benchmarks as shown in the YouTube video above.

Regardless, this comes to show that AMD has made some major strides to push ahead of the competition. You can read more here about AMD’s video card used in the video.
