Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 8GB Review: Vega In The Crosshairs

Middle-earth: Shadow of War (DirectX 11)

2560x1440 Results

Shadow of War yields one more example of Radeon RX Vega 56 beating GeForce GTX 1070, yet succumbing to GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, if only barely.

Meanwhile, Radeon RX Vega 64 bests the GeForce GTX 1080.

3840x2160 Results

Relaxing quality to the Medium preset allows us to achieve playable performance at 3840x2160. There, GTX 1070 Ti and Vega 56 essentially tie. One day ago, AMD’s second-fastest card was still selling for $50 more than its launch price, resulting in similar value stories in Middle-earth. Aware of Nvidia's impending introduction, though, AMD found a way to get Vega 56 down to ~$420 (at least temporarily), making GeForce GTX 1070 Ti look overpriced in comparison.
