AMD Ryzen's First Game Optimization: 'Ashes Of The Singularity: Escalation,' Tested

In testing with a Ryzen 7 1800X paired with DDR4-2933 memory at 1920x1080 resolution and “High Preset” image quality setting, the updated game and its in-game benchmark show a minimum increase of 26 percent in “Average FPS Large Batches,” to a maximum uplift of 33 percent in “Average FPS Normal Batches,” and 31 percent in “Average FPS All Batches” compared to testing with the previous version of Ashes. Although Ryzen 1800X will still be a bit behind the 7700K and 6900K in testing, after a fairly compact optimization effort we now see much closer FPS.

I wouldn't say this is the best game to use for comparison as it still puts up low numbers at a relatively low resolution even with high end equipment, but it is an improvement, though you still have to use Windows 10 so it is what it is.
