DirectX11 vs DirectX12 Ashes of Singularity Benchmark (R9 280X)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Decided to run the Ashes of Singularity Benchmark on my system and compare the DX11 vs DX12 results. This is with my dual X5690s and a MSI R9 280X on High settings:

DX11 (high settings):


DX12 (high settings):


As you can see above just switching to DX12 increased my average frames per second by 41.3%. I also noticed DX12 seemed to have less variance in benchmarks as out of the 3 tests I did for each all were within 3% on the average FPS. DX11 had a variance over 10% on the tests with this result being the best.

For reference the same test ran on the minimum graphics settings:

DX11 (low settings):


DX12 (low settings):


With the graphics turned all the way down and keeping the resolution the same DX12 scored an average of 86.6% higher FPS than DX11 on my setup.

Impressive to see the CPU scaling in DX12.

Thank you for posting this, i have a dual x5650 setup i was in the process of retiring. this makes me rethink that idea if it becomes more widespread with other dx12 titles.

Dual socket 1366's still have plenty of life in them IMHO. I love my X5690s.

Yeah so far early impressions are that DX12 provides a substantial increase in performance for AMDs GCN cards. Hoping November's new driver release will further increase performance.

Are consoles going to get dx12 mainly the xbox? If not i feel like very few games will push any envelopes and thus we will have status quo still.

The Xbox One is DX12 capable but the PS4 is not. The Xbox One will have the same features as the GCN 1.1 cards so it will not fully utilize all of the DX12 features but will get the core feature set.

the PS4 is capable, its a GCN chip, but Sony has its own API.

AFAIK, most of the benefits of DX12 are already in their API.

True. Though I would not expect the PS4 to benefit as well as the Xbox One will in this scenario as the Xbox One will be a much easier port from PC.
