Kingdom Come: Deliverance uses CryEngine 3, which is famous for overwhelming even the highest tier GPUs at 4k resolutions.  [H]ard|OCP's testing reveals that there may be an issue with AMD's cards on this title at the moment.  This may be resolved soon as the two Vega cards performance varied greatly, sometime surpassing the mid-tier NVIDIA cards but then falling below what they should be capable of.  Keep your eye out for a driver update if you are playing this game or plan to.  As far as NVIDIA, not even the 1080Ti can manage playable framerates with all the bells and whistles turned up on 4k.  Check out the details in the full review.

"We take the new game Kingdom Come: Deliverance and test ten current video cards in it to find how each one performs, how those stack up, and what the highest playable settings are. We test 4K, 1440p, and 1080p, with multiple graphics settings, maximum distance sliders, and find out what you need to play this game and have a good experience."

The review shows the 1080ti getting average of 30 fps at 4k maximum in game settings. So this is what next gen console graphics will look like!

It seems that an adaptive sync monitor is a must for this title for the fluctuation in frames.

For all the haters out there check out digital foundries review where they talk about all the new features that hog resources, and mentioned that developers wanted ultra high settings for next generation of hardware fyi.
