Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation is a real-time strategy game set in the future where descendants of humans (called Post- Humans) and a powerful artificial intelligence (called the Substrate) fight a war for control of a resource known as Turinium.
Players will engage in massive-scale land/air battles by commanding entire armies of their own design. Each game takes place on one area of a planet, with each player starting with a home base (known as a Nexus) and a single construction unit.
We opt for the Extreme quality profile and run the GPU-Focused test using the DX12 game mode.
It is when testing Ashes, particularly at 1440p and 4K, that we really see the Nitro+ card really stretch its legs – at both of those resolutions, the Sapphire card delivers at least 8 more frames on average than reference Vega 64.
