Fallout 4 (DirectX 11)
Fallout 4 is set in a post-apocalyptic Boston in the year 2287, 210 years after a devastating nuclear war, in which the player character emerges from an underground bunker known as Vault 111. Gameplay is similar to that of Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. The player completes various quests and acquires experience points to level up their character. With first-person and third-person perspectives available, players can explore Fallout 4's open world setting at will, allowing nonlinear gameplay. The player can bring companions to assist in battles and help with scavenging. Players have the ability to construct and deconstruct buildings and items, and use them to build settlements, which can attract and be inhabited by non-playable characters. –Wikipedia
Settings used for Fallout 4
In Fallout 4 the water and air-cooled version of the Vega hardware are within 4% of each other but when the resolution gets bumped to 4K, the newer version running at 350 watts is 13% faster. This new performance level is also within 2-4% of the GTX 1080, moving AMD’s new flagship card a bit up the ladder. Worth noting as well is that both games tested so far show very little actual in-game performance difference between the 350-watt iteration of the card and the 300 watt.
