Halo Reach PC Performance Review with AMD Ryzen APU Testing

4K Performance

Let's get started with something simple. We recommend playing Halo Reach with the game's framerate locked to 60FPS. With the game's framerate locked, it's more stable, and has less to no framerate variation with the right hardware.  

Even at 4K, 60FPS framerates remain a doddle for modern hardware. Yes, our old R9 380 and GTX 960 fell below this lofty target, but it is worth remembering that these old 2GB graphics cards already sit in PC gaming's retirement pile. In both the new and used markets, Nvidia's GTX 1060 and Radeon's RX 580 graphics card are extremely affordable, making their ability to run Halo Reach at 4K 60FPS a real feather in their respective caps. 

This means that even those with mid-range graphics cards can connect their PCs to a 4K TV to enjoy Halo: Reach at a crisp 4K resolution and a smooth 60FPS framerate. Now that's what I call good news.

I strongly recommend you guys get this via Xbox game pass.

So far I have found this service the best one available. Just when you think PC titles are worth it, you only have to jump on your xbox to see the library open up even further.

Halo MCC
Outer World
Gear/4/5

etc

Reach has horrid fps when unlocked as mentioned already in the article (good job mark!), but my god these games are just amazing. First person shooter in their simplicity and yet so good.

I need to look at the FoV myself, i did not notice the same limitations you had, but perhaps that is something skewed from the start for me since I use a widescreen at 3440 x 1440Quote

The problem I had was only for that one vehicle, but it could be a simple bug. I don't have an ultrawide screen to test here to see what difference it makes.

Yeah, Game Pass is great, especially for the money that you pay for it right now. The value of Game pass alone will help Xbox a lot next-gen.

I'm surprised how well Reach holds up at high resolutions. Great models for all the main characters, well, at least for their armour (The Faces!!!!!!!! Ugh). Lots of detail that isn't really seen on the old Xbox 360 versions. Not bad for such an old game.Quote
