Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is set to launch on PC and consoles next week. Slightly shinier but as pricier as Modern Warfare 2, the PC port will showcase a slew of upscaling and latency-reduction technologies, including DLSS 3 “Frame Generation” and Reflex. Despite this, the Radeon RX 7000 GPUs are quite a bit faster than their GeForce RTX 40 counterparts. The RX 7900 XTX is as much as 30% faster than the NVIDIA RTX 4080 at 4K “Extreme.”
AMD’s official numbers show the Radeon RX 7600 and the RX 7700 beating the RTX 4060 and 4060 Ti by 20% and 44%, respectively. Even the RX 7900 XT leads the RTX 4070 Ti by 27% at 1440p. All four Radeon GPUs average over 100 FPS at their target resolutions, while the RTX 4060, 4060 Ti, and even the 4080 fall short of the triple-figure mark.
NVIDIA’s numbers are similar to AMD’s, with DLSS 3 being the primary difference. The RTX 4090 nets an average of 124.6 FPS at 4K, with DLSS boosting it to 206.5 FPS. The RTX 4080 produces 89 FPS while the 4070 59.8 FPS average.
QHD or 1440p is a free-for-all, with even the RTX 4060 averaging 59 FPS without DLSS. Enabling DLSS 3 “Quality” pushes it past 100 FPS. Meanwhile, the RTX 4080 and 4090 post averages well over 200 FPS with the Frame Generation technology.
At 1080p, the higher-end GPUs start to feel a CPU bottleneck, while the RTX 4060 and 4060 Ti deliver averages of 146 FPS and 167 FPS, respectively.
