4K Screenshot Graphical Comparison

In Prey, one of the main graphical issues is that you will often see textures draw into higher detail levels and often take a long time to react to character movement, which will often result in the game's textures looking sub-par when compared to other modern AAA experiences. This issue is present at all graphical settings, even when the game is at maximum settings, though at low the game has some horrifically bad textures, 

This issue is present at all graphical settings, even when the game is at maximum settings, though at low setting the game has some horrifically bad textures, which is particularly visible on the stock of the shotgun shown below. 

Moving up the game's graphical settings will increase the number of interactable objects in some scenes, like mugs and other items in office settings, though some scenes will change more than others in this regard. 

Moving up from low there is an immediate change in the game's lighting as settings like Screen Space Directional Occlusion and Screen Space Reflections are enabled. 

Prey has a huge need for Anti-Aliasing, suffering from a huge number of jagged regardless of what settings you play the game at. Even at 4K with maxed out AA jaggies were still clearly visible, which may put off those who are very sensitive to Aliasing.

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
