RAGE 2 PC Performance Review

CPU Performance - Core Scaling and the power of Vulkan  

Surely a massive open world's like RAGE 2's is hard on CPUs? Nope, RAGE 2 runs like a dream on our 4GHz Broadwell-E and Ryzen 1st Generation systems. For the most part, they are entirely GPU limited when using Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti at 1080p, with problems only creeping into view when we use quad-core processors without SMT. Even then the game runs well above 60FPS. 

The only configuration that we tried that wouldn't run the game was our dual-core quad-thread setup, which wasn't a setup that we would expect any modern PC gamers to still posses. 

When comparing our basic quad-core systems, RAGE 2 preferred our Ryzen setup to Broadwell-E while at higher core/thread counts the game seemed to prefer Intel to AMD. That said, RAGE 2 ran well with all of the below configurations.

The 4K numbers are surprising for the Vega 56 and 2080 Ti especially considering with prices right now the 2080 Ti is exactly 4 x times the price of a Vega 56 yet doesn't REALLY give worlds better performance at 1440P and 4K.Quote

I'm surprised this doesn't support SLI, but it runs nice enough that I'm not complaining.Quote

I'm not. Wolfenstein didn't either.

The original RAGE did, heck it even supported quad SLi but IIRC that was pure Carmack.Quote

If this is Vulkan only then that would explain why it doesn't support SLI. They'd need a custom mGPU solution and afaik there are no existing libraries out their for a dev to easily replicate AFR on Vulkan atm.Quote

Runs like a dream on my 4790K and 1080Ti I'm seeing 120fps on average with Ultra settings, only thing I have to complain about are the audio glitches in cut scenes where sometimes there is no audio at all and the lack of co-op play.Quote
