Leaving aside the criticism about the lack of optimization of Quantum Break, the first performance tests show that AMD continues the trend to surpass NVIDIA in performance in all newly DirectX 12 released titles like Hitman and DOOM.
Quantum Break: AMD takes the Lead in Performance
These tests reveal that a GeForce GTX 970 Overclocked yield a performance of 31 FPS compared to 41 FPS of the Radeon R9 390, while its big brother, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Overclocked reaches 40 FPS, away from the 55 FPS of Radeon Fury (Fury in the benchmarks is actually the Fury X). At a resolution of Full HD, 2K / 1440p the Radeon R9 390 keeps the difference of 10 FPS extra performance while the Radeon Fury gets a margin of 12 fps .
Technical difficulties aside for the PC version, “Quantum Break” has received good, but not great, reviews across both platforms. The game currently sits at a 77 on Metacritic, with the best reviews coming from Destructoid, Polygon and Game Informer with scores of 85. The Washington Post (70), GameSpot (60), the Guardian (40) and Time (40) were among the more negative reviews of the game. While the overall gameplay of “Quantum Break” was well-received, the live-action episodes were too jarring of an experience for many critics.
