Prey PC Performance Review
Published: 6th May 2017 | Source: OC3D Internal testing | Price: |
At 1080p Prey is a very easy game to run, with even our GTX 960 and R9 380 GPUs managing to achieve average framerates of over 60FPS. Please be aware that those using GPUs with less than 3GB of VRAM will suffer from texture issues, so please make sure that users with 2GB or 4GB GPUs use lower texture quality settings to avoid any issues.
In our testing, we avoided areas that caused Prey/CryEngine to load in new assets and cause momentary slowdown, allowing us to get performance results that a representative of most of the game. These momentary spikes of lag are inavoidable, but it is unfair to use such spikes in general GPU performance comparisons.
At this resolution, Prey is very easy to run and should run well on most systems, though fans of 100FPS+ gameplay will want to look at our CPU performance results if they want to know how to achieve such high framerates.
