Ghost Recon: Wildlands Closed PC Performance Review

1080p Performance

When we started testing it was clear that Ultra settings were not what we were going to recommend to most PC gamers, with even Nvidia's mighty GTX 1080 failing to play the game at a constant 60+ FPS at 1080p. Ultra settings are for those who have insane SLI setups and more GPU power than most games even know what to do with, making these setting simply too much for the majority of PC gamers. 

Moving down to Very High we gain a lot of additional performance in Ghost Recon Wildlands, with anything from the GTX 980Ti/GTX 1070 maintaining framerates of over 60FPS, at least under all but the most demanding of in-game situations. 

We can also see that AMD's R9 Fury X fails to offer anywhere near the performance that we would usually expect from the GPU, which was something that we also noticed in the game's beta version. It is hugely disappointing to see that the developers have failed to utilise this GPU fully, as at 1080p it can barely stay ahead of the RX 480.  


- Update - We have now added results from out GTX 1080Ti testing to this graph.

I hope this game gets a DX12 update, The Division did and it was a nice perf boost for the 1080, Different engine I know but hopefully the same outcome Quote

TurfFX the first and only Nvidia technology that doesn't destroy performance? ShockerQuote

AMD suffers a lot here. It's a shame. I agree with Dicey about a DX12 update being needed. I'd be eager to see it. It helped The Division quite a bit.

I love the graphics from what I've seen. The gameplay is a little weird looking at times, but when it comes together I bet you could have an absolute blast with some friends.

I'm frustrated with the way people are moaning and groaning about this game's GPU demands. What happened to PC Master Race where you needed the best of the best to play certain games at the highest settings? That's part of the fun. As long as the game scales well then it's all good in my books. This game is a little too demanding for my system, but that's because I'm on AMD. Hopefully we'll see further updates from AMD and the game developers.

Vega will of course help as well.Quote

I don't know about Wildlands being too demanding, I'm on Very High settings with FXTurf and Ultra object detail and it sits at 66fps just as in the 1080p graphs for the 1070 FE, future Gameworks DX12 drivers and DX12 engine options "should" see better stable frames in the future. There is no denying though that this game is glorious and fun as hell, the scale of the map and content is just perfect IMHO. It has it's little annoyances, but it wouldn't be a Ubi title without them.

Thanks for the review! Would anyone mind trying to rebind the prone key to anything else and see of it sticks? In both betas many keys couldn't be rebound and being a lefty made playing it very difficult.Quote
