RX 480 Vs GTX 1060 Running DOOM With Vulkan Support, A Different Story
The RX 480 Vs GTX 1060 debate is a long one. I am not going to get into that right now as we have already covered the comparison in the RX 480 Vs GTX 1060 battle. You can check out our GTX 1060 review roundup if you have not already. The GTX 1060 has come out on top but only by a small margin and gamers are wondering if they should even be paying the extra cash for such a small performance boost.
We have a clear winner in the RX 480 Vs GTX 1060 battle but what about Doom with Vulkan support? Why are sites avoiding that in the benchmarks? Well, let’s see how the underdog AMD RX 480 performs in Doom.
The RX 480 Vs GTX 1060 battle in Doom with Vulkan support is a completely different story than in other games. Vulkan has been derived from AMD’s Mantle and so it favors AMD GPUs right now. This is why we see that the slightly less powerful card takes a big lead in Doom at 4K, 1440p and 1080p as well.

What does all this mean? It means that Nvidia has its hold on the high-end GPU market but if you talk about mid-ranged GPUs, here the Vulkan API could, in fact, enhance the performance in-game. But as of right now not many games have Vulkan support. But if in the future game developers do opt to go with the Vulkan API this could be great news for AMD and budget gamers that have mid-ranged AMD GPUs.
