Graphical Options and Settings


Deus Ex offers everything that you would expect from a AAA game graphically, with exclusive fullscreen and windowed options, support for Anti-Aliasing options other than FXAA and the ability to define what you want the game's maximum refresh rate is before you start playing. 

Almost all of the game's graphical options are available to tinker with before entering the game, though these options can also be configured in game. This game will support DirectX 12 after a future patch, so at this time the DirectX 12 option is currently locked to off. 

There are a few options that cannot be changed outside of the game, but these are limited to in-game brightness and Field of View.

The game has plenty of graphical options for players to tinker with, alongside a large range of graphical presets. We would recommend that players start off with the high preset at their desired resolution and then changing your settings accordingly after using the game's built-in benchmark to achieve your desired framerate. 

To quickly gain some performance I would advise that players turn shadow related options and Ambient Occlusion Off ad well as depth of field and Motion blur. We would also recommend that players do not use MSAA as this has a huge performance impact.

One for the bargain bin perhaps. I was never a fan of DE any way so there's no way I'm paying up to £50 for a game like this.

Ah well, Nuka World in a couple of days and after that I will probably begin a complete playthrough of FO4 using a female character any way.Quote

Think I'll see how dx12 is before I think about getting this game. My usual way of working my graphics settings is to set everything to max @4k, and then drop down to custom resolutions like 3456x1944 etc, until I get a comfortable framerate. And maybe dropping the textures down for Vram.
I don't see the point in turning off things like HBAO and hairworks etc and missing out on the experience just for higher resolution. I'm talking about Witcher and Fo4 and ROTTR etc... Of course this game will probably be a different story altogether..Quote

its like crysis and crysis 3 all over again either needing sli or waiting a generation to play at max fidelity, Oh well I guess I will wait for the DX12 patch and hope the 1080 actually benefits from asynchronous compute like the AMD cards doQuote

I find it interesting that every single test card just so happens to be an Asus card.. lol

Edit: Just for future reference as I didn't find it, I think you should give a screenshot for each setting used at different resolutions(that is if they change between resolutions) so we can know exactly what is what. I think it would be useful
Because for example if these results were all AA maxed at every resolution, dropping it to disabled/0 could mean the game is actually playable at say 1440p instead of nearly just so. Although i think 4k still would have sucked performance wise.Quote

I've seen quite a few different tests done with single cards and the results are all over the place as everyone seems to be getting different results even when using the same GPU's and settings.Quote
