Give Vulkan more time and it'll probably at some point compete with DX11 or surpass it. Although this does bode very well for Linux users and SteamOS.

Ya it is kinda the same story isn't it? The higher the resolution gets the better AMD do compared to Nvidia and the gap's from 1080p get much shorter or switch into AMDs favor. Guess that's down to architecture since it's the same story with 3 different APIs(DX11/12, Vulkan)

TBH the 980ti is still better than the Fury X even at 4k. Thanks to certain devs. THen again it is only the rare game.

Would have thought it may have had something to do with HBM for the extra performance at higher res along with some more refined drivers from AMD.

384 seems a bit meh especially for 6GB. I guess its better than 256 for the 4GB.


Kind of funny really. Just like how the 7970 came such a long way thanks to more mature drivers. Just look at where the 290x can get you now.

Great to see AMD doing well although I wonder what the OC results would be, I know Nvidia would surpass AMD even with an OC on the Fury X but I wonder by how much.
