Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is set in the year 2029, two years after the events of Human Revolution and the “Aug Incident”—an event in which mechanically augmented humans became uncontrollable and lethally violent. Unbeknownst to the public, the affected augmented received implanted technology designed to control them by the shadowy Illuminati, which is abused by a rogue member of the group to discredit augmentations completely.

We test using the Very High preset, with MSAA disabled. We test using the DX12 API.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is another DX12 which shows a clear preference for AMD hardware – RX 5700 is faster than 2060 SUPER across the board, and effectively matches the 2070 SUPER at 1080p. Its relative performance lead over the 2060 SUPER is cut significantly as the resolution increases – from 15% at 1080p, to 8% at 4K – but it is a clear win for the RX 5700 here.
At this point in the benchmarking process, I was really beginning to think AMD had absolutely pulled it out of the bag, but let’s see how things pan out across the rest of our benchmarks…
