If Nvidia don't release a driver that massively improves performance, I can imagine when AMD release their RTX 2080 Super competitor whenever they do, it could actually match a 2080Ti. It's interesting considering GTA V has been one of AMD's worst games. It's one of the most popular of all time yet AMD could never catch Nvidia.

LOL, yeah I hear this game wreaks havoc on certain antivirus software.

Another fantastic article, thank you Mark !

Nice to know that with reduced settings I can play this at 4k on pretty much any of the three rigs I will have shortly. Whether I will get it though? IDK. I'm not a fan of Rstars games really. Well, apart from Max Payne 3.

I'm not buying due to that reason. I bought GTA5, played it for 10 minutes and hated it. I think I need to consult a shrink to deal with my hatred of console controller games!

it's just always felt like an amazing world, yet the content is just like, mini games. IDK. Just not for me.

I love playing GTA just for the sandbox aspect but I don't think I have spent more than 20 minutes playing the actual game properly. Same goes for Just Cause tbh. I spent about 40 hours playing JC2 just messing around lol.

Firstly, great vid, and write-up, guys, top notch.

loved the side by side comparisons, however, whilst you mentioned that the colour was more on point with team red, i have to say it looks especially more sharp too. I was wondering if that was a setup/recording issue or perhaps a driver smoothing/sharpening enhancement. but to me it just looked visibly nicer, from the team red, when the 5700-2060s multiscreen is on, I can quite clearly see the difference, and it just repeats again when the 5700xt-2070s are on together.

not a criticism, just noting it.

just a couple screengrabs and then saving to jpg, isnt the best way to compare, but these two are what im on about.




thanks for the work. will try shoehorning it to work better on my ol girl tomorrow.

Annnnd I'm a hypocrite and bought it, LOL. I'm actually more interested in the benchmark, and to see if dual GPUs will actually get used here. Had some issues setting it up (the phrase 'Rockstar Social Club' now officially makes me gag), but it's running. Already crashed once, so far so good, LOL!

I also have a second rig with a Radeon VII, so I can compare team red and green together, albeit with different screens. AMD has always had better default colors than Nvidia, like for decades now. Not sure why, but it's unmistakable. Color quality on the green side has always been more 'pale', at least without tweaking anything.

Initial impressions: this is the new Crysis, as Tom alluded to in the video. It's a killer. First benchmark at stock settings using Vulkan, with two 1080TI's and a 3900x 12 core got me a whole 45fps at 3440x1440 100hz. That's all default graphics settings (looks like it auto-set most things to ultra, but some to medium). Applying my OC profile to my GPUs brought that up to a 50fps average. Tweaking will need to be done for sure.
