Graphical Comparisons - Low, Medium, High and Ultra Detail settings
Now it's time to compare the games default presets and judge exactly how much the visuals improve and let you guys see have a change to see what the performance losses in our benchmarks later will give you in terms if visual fidelity.
Below in the first set of Screenshots it is clear that the largest leap in visuals comes when you jump from the low preset to the medium preset, where you can see that there is some improvement in the games textures, particularly in the dirt and that the shadow quality improves dramatically.
The improvement in shadow quality is especially noticeable when you look at the blue trailer in the medium distance.
In the next set of screenshots we can see exactly when Nvidia's Godrays are turned on, which is in the Medium preset, particularly changing the visuals of the sky and dramatically changes the colours of a lot of the environment.
Moving to higher graphical presets we can see the texture quality of the game continue to improve, though a lot of the differences will be minor at best, especially when you are moving quickly.
In this screenshot we can see the benefit biggest benefit of the highest graphical settings, which is distant details. When you increase the games graphical settings beyond medium you can see that the amount of grass and other plant life increases at the far side of the toxic river, which goes a long way towards making this world look a little more alive.
