Prey PC Performance Review

1080p Performance

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.

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

Poor Radeon. Raja must be peeved with the CPU team getting all the glory. Quote

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