No Man's Sky PC Performance Review

1080p Testing


When compared to No Man's Sky's day 1 performance the game has improved immensely, seeing performance improvements on all GPUs tested and getting rid of the game's random slowdown elements.  

We did not compare the game's performance at Ultra between the Launch day and patched game versions as the original version of the game did not have functioning SSAA making performance comparisons useless. 

Performance on AMD's GPUs sees huge improvements, though AMD's performance is still well below their Nvidia equivalents. Hello Games will need to continue improving the game's performance on AMD GPUs, as while AMD usually has lower performance in OpenGL games an R9 Fury X should not be outperformed by a GTX 1060 to this degree.

So yes it did improve, but it's still not great. Better than nothing and just means they should have delayed the game a week to get around all this press.

Also, on the first page it says 1080 instead of 1070(under the picture). Just thought worth mentioning as I got confusedQuote

I dont think performance improvement is going to help the sheer amount of features that have been changed last minute or are missing entirely.Quote

True but it's a step in the right direction at least, even if it's not what it should have beenQuote
