No Man's Sky PC Performance Review
Published: 14th August 2016 | Source: No Man's Sky | Price: |
At 4K we can see that none of the GPUs that we have tested are capable to 4K 60FPS gameplay, though it is worth noting that we do not have a GTX 1080 or a Pascal Titan X to test. One other thing that is worth noting that regardless of what GPU you use you will still have performance dips in some situations.
Again we can see that AMD is at a huge disadvantage in this game, particularly due to this game's use of the OpenGL API. Hopefully, Hello Games are working on these performance issues, though these may take a long time to implement.
One thing that would be nice to see in the future is an update that will implement Vulkan API support on the PC, as the next generation API should be able to enhance the games CPU and GPU performance if implemented correctly. We know that this worked well for DOOM, so it would be great to see Vulkan support in No Man's Sky.
