Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is an action role-playing stealth video game developed by Eidos Montreal and published by Square Enix. Set in a cyberpunk-themed dystopian world in 2029, two years after the events of Human Revolution, Mankind Divided features the return of Adam Jensen from the previous game, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, with new technology and body augmentations. The game was released on August 23rd, 2016 for PC users.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Train Station

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided uses a heavily modified version of the Glacier 2 engine that has been tweaked so much that they are now calling it the Dawn game engine.

We took a look at GPU performance using the ‘High’ image quality preset with MSAA and VSync turned off. We picked to run just ‘High’ image quality settings due to how tough this game title is to render and we feel that most gamers will try to target this setting.

1080P Benchmark Results: On this game title we see the Sapphire NITRO+ RX 580 8GB Limited Edition coming out 40% faster than the Sapphire NITRO Radeon R9 380X and 9% faster than the EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 FTW. The Radeon RX 580’s average FPS of 71.5 and minimum frame rate of 57 FPS gave us a pretty smooth gaming experience that was enjoyable. 

1440P Benchmark Results: On a 1440P display we found that none of these three graphics cards could even reach 60 FPS with the high image quality preset, so to play this tough DX12 game title at 1440P you’ll need to drop it down to medium. The  Sapphire NITRO+ RX 580 8GB Limited Edition was 41% faster than the 380X and 10% faster than the GeForce GTX 1060.

    Why not compare the 580 with a 480 also in the benchmarks?
