AMD Vega showcased running DOOM in 4K at 60fps

AMD recently held a behind closed doors press event, in which it showcased its upcoming high-end VEGA GPU. This GPU is reported to be the AMD Radeon RX490, will compete with NVIDIA’s GTX1080 and from the looks of it, it will be able to run DOOM in 4K at 60fps.

YouTube’s ‘Tekknological’ shared a video (embedding is disabled unfortunately), showcasing the AMD Vega GPU running DOOM in 4K with more than 60fps. DOOM was running under the Vulkan API, and it appears that in this particular title, the AMD Vega GPU is faster than NVIDIA’s GTX1080.

Here is hoping that AMD will showcase to the public the AMD Vega GPU today, during its New Horizon event (in which it will give us an exclusive advance preview of our new “Zen” CPU ahead of its 2017 Q1 launch).

Last week, we shared the first leaked Ashes of the Singularity benchmarks for this brand new GPU from AMD. And this video basically confirms that the GPU that was used in those leaked benchmarks is AMD’s upcoming GPU (as the GPU ID on both the DOOM and Ashes of the Singularity tests is exactly the same).

Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
