Tried "the evil within 1" last night on bootcamp win 10 with the latest driver from bootcampdrivers.com. Surprised and disappointed that it got only around 30 fps at 4k and only 60 fps at 2560x1440p. I expected the vega 64 could handle games few years ago above 60fps.

Or any settings can be tuned to achieve above 60fps?

Drop the resolution down to 1080p, turn off shadow details and things like that, mess around with Anti-Aliasing, and obviously you change the game resolution settings from low, medium, high, ultra, or do custom, which is what I would recommend.

I have never played the game you referenced, but the things I mentioned are things you can do with every game.

Here are just a few benchmarks I found, but clearly the Vega 64 is better in games and most other things. The Vega 48 does beat it out in a few things. Hope this helps!

These are Geekbench GPU Compute Scores:

OPENCL
2019 iMac 27-inch, Pro 580X = 129057
2019 iMac 27-inch, Pro Vega 48 = 139365
2017 iMac Pro, Pro Vega 56 = 162638
2017 iMac Pro, Pro Vega 64 = 172309

METAL
2019 iMac 27-inch, Pro 580X = 116880
2019 iMac 27-inch, Pro Vega 48 = 139283
2017 iMac Pro, Pro Vega 56 = 159551
2017 iMac Pro, Pro Vega 64 = 175049

Here are some more benchmarks:

Have you run any other benchmarks or tried any other games on your iMac Pro?

Not really...I do recall that the GeekBench 4 CPU results were about 3,500 for single, and close to 50,000 for multi. I have the 18-Core iMac Pro.

I do not really play games on the iMac Pro natively, however, I will game using Nvidia's GeForce NOW cloud gaming app. I know my iMac Pro can play some games natively, but I can pretty much any game I want using GeForce NOW, like Call of Duty: WWII (2017) and PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS (2017) and I am sure they will add the new Call Of Duty on there soon. I can play all those games on Max or Ultra settings...some games only have a max settings, others ultra.

I highly recommend it, but it is beta so you have to sign up and wait to get a code. There are other cloud gaming platforms that you can try as well.

ehm, geforce now has a max resolution of 1920x1200. why would you hurt your eyes with downsampling that on a 5k monitor and then talk about ultrasetting? macs are useless for gaming.

I have tried all cloud gaming services and they are useless really. even gaming on a mac in lower settings gives u better experience. get a mac
mini with a 4k monitor and a gaming pc for 2k usd with 4 times the vega experience
