With Dawn of War III at low quality 1080p settings, these graphics cards on the Ryzen 3 system would have a tough time delivering playable results. The Vulkan vs. OpenGL performance was similar in this case.

But with the CPU usage metrics we see again that using Vulkan significantly frees up resources on the Ryzen 3 processor.

When pushing high quality settings to stress these lower-end graphics cards further, the GTX 1050 was now faster by a few frames with Vulkan while using RADV on the RX 560 was still slower than RadeonSI OpenGL.

Again, to no surprise, the CPU usage is noticeably lower when using Vulkan.
