Gaming: Strange Brigade (DX12, Vulkan)

Strange Brigade is based in 1903’s Egypt and follows a story which is very similar to that of the Mummy film franchise. This particular third-person shooter is developed by Rebellion Developments which is more widely known for games such as the Sniper Elite and Alien vs Predator series. The game follows the hunt for Seteki the Witch Queen who has arose once again and the only ‘troop’ who can ultimately stop her. Gameplay is cooperative centric with a wide variety of different levels and many puzzles which need solving by the British colonial Secret Service agents sent to put an end to her reign of barbaric and brutality.

The game supports both the DirectX 12 and Vulkan APIs and houses its own built-in benchmark which offers various options up for customization including textures, anti-aliasing, reflections, draw distance and even allows users to enable or disable motion blur, ambient occlusion and tessellation among others. AMD has boasted previously that Strange Brigade is part of its Vulkan API implementation offering scalability for AMD multi-graphics card configurations.

    Hi Ian,

    Your testing mentions running Linux 'when feasible' and when in 'full swing' - is that any time soon? I think benchmarks would benefit from cross-platform tests (remember the debacle of Threadripper performance on Windows..)

    Cheers

    This review sucks there is not a single data for how the Socket A Duron 900 stacks up against the rest :D After all 19 years passed we should know how far the CPUs advanced :D Reply

    I would not want to buy a limited edition piece of hardware with only 1500 sold as there is likely to be a lack of support; compatibility issues. Reply

    I just want a Intel 12-core 5 GHz chip. Lets hope the next generation delivers that. Reply

    Why the brand loyalty? That's not logical. Just buy the best solution for the intended task, no matter who makes it. If right now that's Intel, because of AVX or 1080p high-refresh gaming, then so be it, but for Blender atm AMD is king. It depends on the task. Some absolute notion of branded desire is bizarre.

    Mixed. Too many bad experiences with stability and software support with AMD. Reply
