Image quality settings and benchmark system

We use a run with the best image quality settings for this game, the highest possible quality mode (Ultra). Games typically should be able to run in the 60 FPS range combined with your monitor resolution. From there, you can enable/disable things if you need more performance or demand even better game rendering quality. There's a lot of features you can configure, we recommend you to stick to the best quality settings and leave it at that. There are numerous possibilities. The game includes FPS limiters between in addition, to that there are different graphic presets like low, medium, high, and ultra, and an integrated benchmark.

Optionally you can enable an HD Quality texture pack. Since we test with 8GB graphics cards predominantly these days, we install and enable it as default. Should you have a 6GB or lower graphics card and play at a resolution higher than 2560x1440, we recommend you leave it disabled.

Below is an overview of the settings.

Test environment (system specification)

Our graphics card test system is based on a sixteen-core AMD Ryzen 9 5950X processor on the X570 chipset platform. We use Windows 10 all patched up. Each graphics card runs on the same PC with the same operating system clone.

System Spec

  • Ryzen 9 5950X
  • X570 (ASUS Crosshair VIII HERO)
  • 16GB DDR4 3600 MHz CL14
  • NVMe, M.2. SSD

Graphics drivers

  • GeForce graphics cards use the 472.12 (download). 
  • Radeon graphics cards we used a beta AMD Radeon Adrenalin 21.10.1 driver (download). 
  • Resize BAR (rBAR) is activated
Our test PC was outfitted with this heavy setup to prevent and remove CPU bottlenecks that could influence high-end graphics card GPU scores. Let's head onwards to the next page where we'll look at some screenshots and then start measure several monitor resolutions in terms of relative performance versus quality settings.
