Lastly are the 4K results where the AMD Radeon metrics become interesting due to no longer hitting the 60 FPS cap it's strangely encountering. The Radeon RX 580 was performing frames ahead of the GTX 1060 as it should along with the Radeon RX 590, but the higher-end Vega and Fury graphics cards in this configuration were coming in short of expectations.

Showing some Radeon performance oddities still at hand is the Radeon R9 Fury outperforming the Vega graphics cards, which were only performing around the Polaris performance level. The GTX 1080 / RTX 2060 and above could still deliver above a 60 FPS average with 4K medium quality settings.

Even at 4K high quality settings, the strange Radeon performance continued but at least the game was rendering correctly and better off than we've seen out of the Radeon driver stack for gaming compared to a number of years previously. The RTX 2060 / GTX 1080 were still hovering just above the 60 FPS mark in this configuration.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and TITAN RTX could still hit around 120 FPS at 4K with ultra quality settings.

For those curious about the NVIDIA/AMD GPU and CPU usage in this demanding scenario...

Hopefully these NVIDIA performance numbers are insightful if Strange Brigade is a title of interest to you. Hopefully the Radeon performance issue(s) get sorted out soon and thanks to this game being benchmark-friendly will be found in more Linux benchmark articles moving forward.
