No Async Compute on Rise of the Tomb Raider?

Hello! so i was just curious to see if this game (being a DX12 title and all) supported Async Compute... i found a registry entry to enable or disable this feature. it's located in...
(Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Crystal Dynamics\Rise of the Tomb Raider\ Graphics)

changing "AsyncCompute" in that location from 1 to 0 and re-testing the benchmark showed literally zero difference in benchmark scores.

I thought this game was supposed to use use Async Compute? or am i mistaking?


DX12 AsyncCompute ON -

DX12 AsyncCompute OFF -


As you can see there is like no difference with it enabled or disabled. any clarification to this would be greatly appreciated.
