Wolfenstein II The New Colossus uses the Vulkan API which could favour AMD's offerings however NVIDIA have vastly improved their support so a win is not guaranteed.  The Guru of 3D tested the three resolutions which most people are interested in, 1080p, 1440p and 4K on 20 different GPUs in total.  They also took a look at the impact of 4-core versus 8-core CPUs, testing the i7-4790K, i7-5960K as well as the Ryzen 7 1800X and even explored the amount of VRAM the game uses.  Drop by to see all their results as well as hints on dealing with the current bugs.

"We'll have a peek at the PC release of Wolfenstein II The New Colossus for Windows relative towards graphics card performance. The game is 100% driven by the Vulkan API. in this test twenty graphics cards are being tested and benchmarked."

That CPU optimization thought!
I wonder if it is due to Vulkan API, or good coding.

BOTH.
Having said that, this is a very GRAPHICAL, single-player game so I wouldn't have expected much CPU load anyway.

Also, the comment about how "efficient" the R7 runs the game over its 16 threads is misleading. There is a thing called "thread jumping" where a thread of code can run on one core then switch to another core, so you can get the code averaging out even if the game is running less than 16 threads of code at a given time.

So seeing 16 threads which are each slightly used doesn't tell you that much... if the game was running BETTER (higher FPS) due to the extra cores that would be different.

Too bad Guru3D only has an aircooled Vega 64. From their numbers the water cooled would have beaten the 1080TI.

Their numbers are load of shit i pretty much avr between 140-165fps with my 5960x 1080ti with max video setting at 1440p

I don't believe you. There's probably at least one setting that is not on maximum.

I found other benchmarks that came out in the last week that confirm the results in the article link so...

Running RX-480 clean drivers with skylake i7... no end of crashes and freezing.

Before the first patch and amd driver update, the game ran well, a bit stuttery from time to time but it never froze or crash, after the updates and patches, i just want to kill amd.
