If you are on the fence about picking up the new Wolfenstein because you aren't sure your GPU can handle it? Overclockers Club tested the game with some older hardware as well as the current generation, including the GTX 770 and GTX 980 in addition to a RX Vega 64 and GTX 1080. After running through the benchmarks they find that the GTX 980 is more than capable of handling this game, so grab it if you have a GPU of that calibre. If you are looking for the best possible experience, the Vega 64 is the way to go.
"Having additional GPUs may have proven useful for this work since we leapt from barely playable on the GTX 770 to max settings on the GTX 980. The GTX 1080 naturally surpassed the GTX 980 and the RX Vega 64 beat them all, both at stock and with the undervolt and power limit. Based on this sampling of performance data, if you could pick any GPU to play Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus on, the RX Vega 64 would be the best of those test. However, you can very comfortably go with something older and cheaper, like the GTX 980 without compromising a setting. To my mind, that is pretty impressive for a modern game with modern graphics."
