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 shows some interesting results, with the Vega56 repeatedly outperforming Vega64 at higher resolutions. The slightly lower average boost clock speed and fewer GPU cores of the Vega56 are likely allowing the card to maintain that boost clock speed better than the Vega64 can.
Either way, RX Vega56 puts in a strong showing against the GTX 1070 FE by comfortably outperforming Nvidia’s offering at all resolutions.
