For Honor, the third-person fantasy medieval fighting game performs really well and looks great on current generation mainstream cards. Last time we had a look, the GTX 1060 had a slight advantage in areas where lush green vegetation dominates the scenery. How much faster is the RX 580 over RX 480 in these circumstances? To find out, we joined Runa, the forceful Viking amazon on her reconnaissance mission into the Myre, a Japanase swamp forest - our benchmark sections consist of two short in-engine cut scenes and a quick jog around the initial section of the map.
The RX 580 is around 5% faster around the Japanese forest, a nice improvement over the RX 480.
