GTX 1080 vs RX Vega 64 4K HDR Shootout

The crew at ComputerBase pit an NVIDIA GTX 1080 against an AMD RX Vega 64 in a 4K HDR showdown that wasn't pretty for either card, especially the GTX 1080. Translator required. 

The individual benchmarks show that they really exist: games that do not lose performance with HDR. Interestingly, they are not the same titles, GeForce reacts differently than Radeon. Thus, the GeForce GTX 1080 in Mass Effect: Andromeda is unimpressed by whether SDR or HDR is used. Also in Far Cry 5 the difference is very small. On the Radeon RX Vega 64, Assassin's Creed Origins, Battlefield 1, F1 2017, Final Fantasy XV, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Shadow Warrior 2, and Star Wars: Battlefront 2 will not show which mode is active.
