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.
Ashes is slightly less promising than the initial 3DMark tests – while the results are right in the mix with the other GTX 1070 Tis, I would’ve thought this AMP Extreme card would come out on top due to its OC profile and the +150MHz to the GPU core.
