Wolfenstein: Youngblood PC Performance Review

CPU Performance - Core Scaling and the power of Vulkan

The words "CPU limited" have been said a lot in recent times, especially when it comes to gaming. While major strides are being made in the realms of multi-threaded performance, single-threaded performance has started to hit a wall. 

Moving forward, efficient use of multi-threading will be a must for high-end gaming experiences, as single-threaded performance gains are not coming as fast as they once did. Thankfully, Wolfenstein: Youngblood's implementation of the id Tech 6 engine makes great use out of all of the cores/threads that we can throw at the engine. Youngblood is playable with as little as a dual-core/quad-thread setup, though we will note that this configuration can present stuttering in some instances, leaving a capable quad-core as our CPU recommendation for stable gameplay. 

Fans of 144Hz monitors will be glad to know that Youngblood can be easily played at this refresh rate and that this level of performance is accessible with today's processors. Our 4GHz i7-6850K isn't that powerful by today's standard, but it can play Wolfenstein at over 144Hz.

Thanks.



TL DR - Performance is good ;-)


Rumor has it, that the single player missions cannot be paused ... can you confirm this? It's a absolute deal-breaker for me.Quote

It doesn't pause. You can usually keep running for a, to a safer section of the map, and pause, but the game carries on as normal.

This game is designed for co-op, so it makes sense why the game works this way. I agree that is is very annoying for single-player play.Quote

I heard it's poo. When I jump on pc later I'll stick a link in to a YT vid. I'm just glad it was pretty cheap really though I'll admit I've not installed it yet as I'm waiting for my fibre to be connected.

It may be that it's fine tbh. I just think the annoying bits sound really annoying. It's not like they are aiming it at women but rather immature young girls. Which may find a niche, but certainly not with me. I've been married to two lol.Quote
