Resident Evil 7: Biohazard PC Performance Review

4K Screenshot Graphical Comparison

With Resident Evil 7 we can see that the there are a lot of large visual differenced when moving from Very Low to Very High settings, with the highest settings coming with light shafts, reflections and enhanced texture resolutions. 

Moving from low to high we can also see the differenced between FXAA and SMAA, with SMAA providing a sharper image compared to the more blurred image provided by FXAA. When looking at our 4K images below you can see that a lot of detail is lost from far away objects when using FXAA, only becoming more blurred if the user opts for Temporal Anti-Aliasing (TAA). 

We can see that in simpler areas with relatively few light sources that the in-game visuals do not change much when moving above Medium settings, with the biggest impact coming when players move to higher levels of texture quality and Mesh quality when looking at objects up close. 

When comparing High to Very High it is very difficult to actually notice a difference in visual quality, which means that the majority of players on PC could benefit from lowering their settings for a higher framerate in-game.

What polar opposite results you found compared to Guru3D's performance review. Something must have been out of whack with their system or drivers as the Fury X performed really poorly and erratically.

It's fantastic to see the Fury line still hold strong in these big titles. After a couple of poor performance numbers over the last four months, I'm glad to see the Fury line pick things up again and remain competitive.Quote

The big difference is that they used Max settings, which is insanely VRAM intensive and I found to cause a lot of framerate instability on even the GTX 1080.

In my testing, I opted for what I called "high" settings in the review, which provided these results. I wouldn't recommend higher as it caused a lot of issues, especially on the old NV driver.Quote

That makes sense. Sometimes I think developers include 'insane' settings just because they can, not because they need to or should.Quote

Most developers will tell you games are designed to be played on high. Very high, it extreme settings are there to be used for screen shots, and showing things off. Not for game play.Quote
