Since this is a closed beta there is scope for performance improvement from both GPU vendors before the game launches roughly 3 weeks from now. So we cannot conclude that AMD cards are faster than their Nvidia counterparts. The good thing is this game uses the Anvil Next 2.0 game engine which is also used in the Tom Clancy Rainbow Six, Tom Clancy Ghost Recon and Assassins Creed series of games and AMD cards have generally been slower in past Assassins Creed titles than their Nvidia counterparts. The performance in this game bodes well for Polaris and Vega cards in Ubisoft titles going forward.

Interesting showing here:

A RX 480 @ 1435MHz vs. GTX 970 @ 1555MHz vs. GTX 1060 @ 2100MHz


On another note, I really appreciate that PCGamesHardware shows actual boost clock speed of each card. I don't know why reviewers fail to do this.

Their benchmarks are weird to me.

For example, I have that exact XFX 470 and its clocks are 1256 MHz not 1160 Mhz. I would say its just a mislabel but no way in my experience does my 470 lag behind my 480 that much. With a little OC the 470 feels like the same card.

Yeah not sure where those clocks are coming from either. The black edition is usually XFX's pre-OC'd edition.

I don't see any under 1226 stock:

Maybe throttling
No way. Can't be, unless it is a major user error.

This card has one of the nicest coolers I have ever seen in a $200 card. It BLOWS my Red Devil 470 off the map on temps, it is probably the best 470 on the market.

In my testing it is less than 10% slower than my reference 480 (that I have tweaked with undervolting but no overclocking), and when OCed it goes toe-to-toe with the 480.

Something screwy is going on.

New AMD driver is only for RE7.So I think There is no New Profile for "For Honor"?

The game is a fighter, yeah? 4v4 With some trash AI thrown in a small arena. If it was on the scale of Oblivion, yeah I'd expect some CPU bottlenecks, but an arena game? Nah.

Small scale doesn't necessarily = low cpu usage.

I guess there is the possibility of small games having detailed collision meshes and hitboxes, as well as complex AI, but there's not really anything like that going on.

Yeah its like a moba but over the shoulder combat vs the more common top-down.

Our analysis didn't reveal any problems with the RX480 minimum frame rates, the frame time graphs are smooth enough as well - 1080p/Extreme preset w/ FX8370.
Thanks for testing that. I've always thought that GN's results were skewed low for AMD since they are constantly behind compared with any other review. I really think something is broken with their AMD testing with how many issues they had vs yours with a much weaker CPU even. I wonder if they don't have xbox recording or something else interfering with their test setup.

Capturing, processing and visualizing frame time data is really time consuming and if everything is working as intended (no stutter or sudden drops) then it's really not worth the work as 99% of the users really don't have a clue about what is going on in the graphs.
On the other hand, if you have something weird, it's the only proper way to showcase the issue - don't know why they didn't include some evidence of it in their video.
