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. (Wikipedia).
The Very High preset was used for 1080P, 1440P, and 4K. We used the DirectX 12 API.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided tends to favour AMD hardware, so it is no surprise to see the Vega56 outperforming GTX 1070 FE. The average performance lead for AMD’s RX Vega56 is 19% at 1080P and 1440P, and 18% at 4K.
AMD’s own Vega64 Air is slightly faster than the Vega56 (perhaps not justifiably so given its price difference) but the lower-cost card still sits at a good performance point for 1440P gamers.
