Graphical Options and Settings

At launch Prey's graphical options menu is a little lacking, with many features that are common to FPS games being missing from the game's graphical options menu.  

To start off with the game lacks a FoV (Field of View) slider, which will limit the game to a set viewpoint and annoy players who suffer from simulation sickness at low FoV values.  The game also lacks an option to disable motion blur, which again is something that will annoy a lot of PC gamers who prefer a sharper image to an image which has a motion blur effect. 

Prey also comes with a preset frame rate limit, though thankfully this is set to 144Hz, which will be suitable for most gamers. This value is modifiable in the game files, so 165Hz, 180Hz and 240Hz monitor users will be able to increase the framerate limit to suit their display configuration.

Thanks Mark.

Listen I don't want to be a mega pain or anything but could you lower the settings down a little and run the 1440p benches again? I just want to see if it's VRAM bound and that's why the Fury X isn't so hot at 1440p (good old texture caching FTL).Quote

Thanks for the article, Mark. It's clear that a lot of effort goes into these reviews.

Glad to see that the game's performance is pretty decent, too.Quote

In regard to the partnership between AMD and Bethesda, for this title the optimization work went into the Ryzen CPUs, instead of the GPUs. Although it should have been the other way around but anyways thats what they did

Alien, I'd just run High settings. I couldn't tell a difference between High and Very High, so it shouldn't be a big deal to tone it down. Saves you Vram and gets you extra performanceQuote

I'd say right now Ryzen is more important than a Polaris refresh. Makes more money sooo it makes sense. Until Vega comes aroundQuote
