Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a first-person shooter developed by MachineGames and Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. A spin-off of the Wolfenstein series, the game was released for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in July 2019 and Stadia in November 2019 as a launch title.

This game title uses the id Tech 6 multiplatform game engine developed by id Software. It is the successor to id Tech 5 and was first used to create the 2016 video game Doom. It supports both Vulkan API and OpenGL API and a wide range of advanced features.

We tested this game title using the built-in benchmark with the riverside map with Uber game settings. We did use the Wolfenstein beta build on Steam in order to get the latest Ampere async compute optimizations. These are not in the public build, but it should be ready soon according to NVIDIA.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition is over 2x faster than the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 at 4K Ultra HD with RTX and DLSS enabled. Even with DLSS and RTX disabled the GeForce RTX 3090 was able to deliver nearly 3x the performance of the NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 and 2x the performance of the GeForce RTX 2080.
