RAGE 2 PC Performance Review

Preset Performance Scaling - RX 580 VS GTX 1060 

In the table below we can see that RAGE 2's High and Ultra settings offer users a minimal performance difference and a huge graphical uplift, making the game's high preset pointless for most modern setups. A performance difference of a frame or two isn't worth worrying about, which makes us wonder why Bethesda didn't do more to differentiate those presets. 

RAGE 2's medium preset offers players a notable performance boost, going so far as to make the RX 580 stay at over 60FPS in our benchmarking location, though the GTX 1060 remains below the much-coveted 60+ FPS target. Low settings will give the game another notable performance boost, but it will come with a larger dip in RAGE 2's graphical quality. 

RAGE 2 is designed to offer GPU scaling thanks to these graphical settings and through the use of the game's dynamic resolution scaler, which explains why RAGE 2's Low preset look relatively good when compared to a lot of other games.

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
