For Honor Closed Beta PC Performance Review

Introduction  

What happens when you pit fully armoured Medieval Knights against armies of Vikings and Samurai. For years this has been a topic of debate and in For Honor we finally get to see what could happen for ourselves. 

This weekend For Honor's Closed Beta has been taking place, giving gamers one of their first opportunities to play this game's online component and see how this medieval combat game performs.  

Today we will be looking at the PC version of the game, how its online multiplayer component performs and have a look at how the game looks when playing the game at Low, Medium, High and Ultra Settings. Are you ready to battle?

 

 

Drivers 

For this game, we will be using the newest drivers that were available when the game released, which is Nvidia's Game Ready Geforce 378.49 driver and AMD's 17.1.1 driver, both of which are the most recent GPU drivers for either company. 

 

Test Setup  

We will be testing this game on our dedicated GPU test rig using both high-end and mid-range GPUs from both AMD and Nvidia.

Intel i7 6850K

For the high-end, we will be testing AMD's R9 Fury X, the GTX 980Ti and Nvidia's new GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 GPUs.  

For the Mid-range offerings, we will be testing the new RX 480 and GTX 1060, both of which will be the ASUS Strix Gaming models.

To represent AMD and Nvidia's lower-end GPU offerings we have decided to use the AMD R9 380 and the Nvidia GTX 960. Both of these GPUs will be the ASUS Strix models. 

Both of these GPUs offer very similar performance in most scenarios and come in at very similar price points, so it will be very interesting to see which GPU will come out on top.

Just wondering here, but you think the 480 would do as well at 4k than a Fury X? With these new drivers, we keep seeing the 480 get closer and closer to its level. The extra VRAM helps to(not that it matters for this game).
It probably won't perform as well, but just curious if you know how roughly close it would be.Quote
