Radeon RX 580 VS Geforce GTX 1060 - Running RE2 on Popular Hardware  

The Radeon RX 580 and the Geforce GTX 1060 are two of the most popular graphics cards on the market, offering relatively affordable pricing that enough hardware grunt to push games well past what consoles like the PS4 and Xbox One can offer. 

Below we have tested Resident Evil 2 using all of the game's default graphical presets, showcasing RE2's tremendous scalability on PC. In most cases, the RX 580 pushes way past the GTX 1060, but neither GPU offers terrible performance within this game. Both the ASUS RX 580 Strix and ASUS GTX 1060 Strix GPUs that we tested are perfect for playing this game at 1080p 60+ FPS, with lowering the game's Volumetric Lighting setting to medium ensuring 60+ FPS at all times at 1080p. 

1440p is a challenge for these graphics cards, but as we have shown on page 4, even Resident Evil 2's Performance Priority preset can look good, though our advice is to set Volumetric lighting to medium on this preset and push the game's textures as far as your graphics card will allow, assuming you have the performance overhead to do so.

Thanks man. Your kind words are appreciated.

Tom and I are very excited about the future of our gaming content moving into 2019. Hopefully we can update this with Nvidia's RTX GPUs after a little while.Quote

An oddity within the PC version of Resident Evil 4 is the game's use of low refresh rate animations
Page 6 I thought we were looking at RE 2 Remake


Is there even a difference in graphics quality between DX11 and DX12?



I just now noticed that you have to complete a game to be able to judge which scenes represent the vast majority of gameplay. So thanks for your effort and work!!


Would've loved to see a screenshot with Vol. Lighting turned off completely, for comparison, but that's also nitpicky, I guess.


Keep performance reviews as awesome as this one! Quote

Typo fixed, thanks for the spot.

As far as DX12 goes, the graphical quality appears to be identical. It's a strange one.

That's a good point, but my thinking at the time was that I wanted to recommend medium as it maintained the intended look of the game without much of a noticeable graphical sacrifice.

Thanks man. Your comments are appreciated.Quote

Got about 5 hours into this game and I really do like the graphics and it seems to run pretty well. The ammo rationing killed it for me, it just sucked the fun right out of it. You spend pretty much the whole game nearly out of ammo and running away from everything. That's just frustrating. I've got a few hours into it and while it looked like it was going to be a great game, I doubt I'll even finish it now.

It's a shame because I loved the original versions 25+ years ago.Quote
