Presets VS OC3D's Optimised Settings - Navi VS Turing - RX 5700 VS RTX 2060
Looking at the graph below, you will see that our "Optimised Settings" perform similarly to Horizon Zero Dawn's "Original" preset, but offer some significant upgrades when it comes to graphical detail.
The main upgrade that you should see below is Horizon's extended draw distances, significantly reducing pop-in while making the game's environment more detailed than before. With these settings, you can be content that your game looks better than the PlayStation 4 version while getting strong performance levels out of your hardware.
Navi VS Turing
Below we can see that AMD's RDNA architecture runs Horizon Zero Dawn extremely well, with AMD's RX 5700 offering average and 5th percentile framerates of over 60 FPS when running through our custom benchmarking area.
AMD's RX 5700 runs Horizon Zero Dawn significantly faster than Nvidia's RTX 2060 in our test area. That said, Nvidia's GTX 2060 is an RX 5600 XT competitor, not an RX 5700 competitor. It is likely that an RTX 2060 Super would achieve average framerates of over 60 FPS when using our optimised settings.
