F1 2018 (DX11)

Succeeding F1 2016 is F1 2018, Codemaster's latest iteration in their official Formula One racing games. It features a slimmed down version of Codemasters' traditional built-in benchmarking tools and scripts, something that is surprisingly absent in DiRT 4.

Aside from keeping up-to-date on the Formula One world, F1 2017 added HDR support, which F1 2018 has maintained; otherwise, we should see any newer versions of Codemasters' EGO engine find its way into F1. Graphically demanding in its own right, F1 2018 keeps a useful racing-type graphics workload in our benchmarks.

In F1 2018, the RX 590 again carves out a clear space in between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1060 6GB. Given that the GTX 1060 6GB FE already performs slower than the RX 480 8GB, the RX 590 ends up closer to the GTX 1070 FE than to the GTX 1060 6GB FE.

    Who the hell is using SFX?

    There is plenty of small form factor case using regular ATX standard.

    Unless you use Silverstone cases, SFX is not even a matter.

    I am using a Silverstone case and a SFX power supply. Not that either of the two matter in regards to an RX590 announcement. Reply

    Unless the 1060 GDDR5X version comes out... which is soon. Reply

    GDDR5X is only having an impact at higher resolutions than 1080p... which the 1060 GTX is clearly not aiming at. Reply

    Exactly, this is selling at the same price as a 1060 GTX and offer a game bundle, it is brainless and right before christmas.

    Unlike a lot of people here, I think it is the best new card of the year. RTX was such a disaster and especially more with BF5 benchmarks.

    Still viable for smaller cases that have stricter heat requirements. Reply

    Boy oh boy, if AMD keeps pushing like this by next year they will be as fast as Nvidia was in 2016. Reply

    Problem is, far too many gamers just don't buy AMD even when they do have something genuinely competitive or objectively better. Many people use them merely as a means of buying a cheaper NVIDIA option when the latter drops its prices. I've even seen people say such dumb things as they hope AMD will release something good so they can buy a cheaper NVIDIA card. With such a consumer mindset, there's no incentive for AMD to target the high end at all. AMD are going after the mainstream, which is where the volume is. If they can do well there then they can build the brand recognition and aim higher later.
