ARK Survival Evolved - PC performance graphics benchmarks of Graphics Cards and Processors

BASIC GAME INFORMATION

ARK Survival Evolved

Year of construction: 2017, the
Genre: Action / 3D / 1st Person / 3rd Person
developer: Studio Wildcard
Publishing house: Studio Wildcard 

Powered by Unreal Engine 4, ARK: Survival Evolved is a survival game with a unique blend of multiplayer, co-op and competitive modes. Players wake up naked and hungry on the beach of a mysterious island, among many other distraught people. In ARK: Survival Evolved you must: hunt, harvest, master a craft, research technology and build shelters from the scorching daytime sun, frosty nights, weather conditions and potential enemies.

THE GRAFICAL PART

This subsection of our review highlights the main graphical aspects of this game. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphic settings and the quality of development of the main visual aspects. 

SUPPORTED OS AND GRAPHICS API

ARK Survival Evolved is supported on Windows 7/8/10, Mac OS and Linux.

steam 

The priority and main graphics API for ARK Survival Evolved is DirectX 11.

GAME ENGINE

The basis for ARK Survival Evolved is the Unreal Engine 4 game engine, developed and supported by Epic Games. 

Unreal engine 4

Thanks to his work, each playthrough of the game is unique and inimitable, which increases the replay value of the game. The first game created on the engine, Unreal, appeared in 1998. Since then, various versions of this game engine have been used in more than a hundred games, including Deus Ex, Dishonored, Lineage II, Thief: Deadly Shadows, Postal 2, the Brothers in Arms series, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six, as well as in the famous game series Unreal and Unreal Tournament from Epic Games themselves. Being primarily adapted for first-person shooters, the engine was also used to create games of other genres.   

Written in the high-level language C++, the Unreal Engine 4 allows you to create games for most operating systems and platforms: Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac OS and Mac OS X, Xbox consoles, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 3, Wii, Dreamcast and Nintendo GameCube. In December, Mark Rein demonstrated the work of the Unreal Engine 3 on the iPod Touch and iPhone 3GS. In March 2010, the engine was demonstrated on the Palm Pre communicator, based on the webOS mobile platform.

To simplify porting, the engine uses a modular system of dependent components: supports various rendering systems (Direct3D, OpenGL, Pixomatic; previously supported Glide API, S3 Metal, PowerVR SGL), audio playback (EAX, OpenAL, DirectSound3D; previously supported A3D), voice playback tools text, speech recognition (only for Xbox360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Windows, also planned for Linux and Mac), modules for working with the network and support for various input devices. 

ShooterGame 2017 09 03 16 42 45 113

Windows Live, Xbox Live, and GameSpy technologies are supported for online play, including up to 64 players (clients) simultaneously. Despite the fact that the development tools do not officially include support for a large number of clients on one server, the engine has been used to create MMORPG games. One of the most famous representatives of the genre, Lineage II, uses the Unreal Engine. 

ADVANCED GAME SETTINGS

ARK - Survival Evolved has a sufficient range of graphic settings. We have both basic and advanced settings at our disposal.

Below we have provided screenshots of the game at various graphics settings, where our readers can see the difference between the minimum and maximum graphics quality settings. 

DIFFERENT QUALITY MODES


The difference between the various settings is quite obvious and visible to the naked eye.

COMPARISON OF SMOOTHING MODES

In-game anti-aliasing completely eliminates all uneven surfaces.

GENERAL VISUALS AND GAME PHYSICS

The graphics of the game have not changed much since our last testing, but even despite this, the game is very beautiful and technologically advanced today.

FRAPS

All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality using the Action! program. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. Below is a video of the test segment:  

 Our video cards were tested at different screen sizes of 1920x1080, 2560x1600 and 3840x2160 with the maximum graphics quality settings allowed by the game (epic by default). AMD CrossFireX is currently not officially supported by the game, and to activate it we used the profile from the Paragon game.

GPU TEST

In the video card test, the default resolution is 1920x1080; other resolutions are added and removed manually. You can also remove and add any positions of video cards. You can also select any of our test processors from the list in the drop-down menu, comparing its performance with the given video card tests (by default, the most productive solution is selected).

When resolved 1920x1080 average FPS in 25 frames showed video cards of the level of Radeon RX 480 or GeForce GTX 780 Ti. Minimum FPS of at least 25 frames can be provided by video cards of the level Radeon R9 Fury X or GeForce GTX 980. A comfortable average FPS of 60 frames can be achieved by level solutions GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

When resolved 2560x1440 average FPS 25 frames showed video cards level Radeon RX 480 CF or GeForce GTX 980 Ti. Minimum FPS at least 25 frames will be able to provide video cards of the level Radeon RX Vega 64 or GeForce GTX 1080.

When resolved 3840x2160 average FPS 25 frames showed video cards of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti level. A minimum FPS of at least 25 frames can be provided by video cards of the GeForce GTX 1080 SLI level. 

VIDEO MEMORY CONSUMPTION

wow

Testing of video memory consumed by the game was carried out by the program MSI Afterburner. The indicator was based on the results on video cards from AMD and NVIDIA with separate screen sizes 1920x1080 and 2560x1440 with different anti-aliasing settings. By default, the graph displays the most current solutions. Other video cards are added and removed from the schedule at the request of the reader.

The game uses a maximum of 8 computing threads. But all, only 4 cores are effectively used.

RAM TEST

sys

The test was carried out on the basic configuration of Core i 7 5960X@4.6 GHz with 32 GB DDR4 2400 MGz pre-installed memory. All used RAM was taken as an indicator. The RAM test on the entire system was carried out on various video cards without launching third-party applications (browsers, etc.). In the graphics, you can add and remove any resolutions and video cards as desired.

releases and will continue to release all other cards except Vega. they already wrote about it in the news. that the vega type is a card for mining. We uploaded a beta driver for you so that the ether can be clearly processed (and in real mining there is a significant increase from this driver!) and on this we wrote all with firewood. this was the first and last driver for it. don't wait any longer. that's it.

Wangyu, Vega will be ahead only at dh12 (not in all nerds) and of course, if Vulcan is there. The rest is a waste.
Vega will drain from time to time if the firewood on Vega is not updated. The beta driver was released (and that was the end of all subsequent software updates) and goodbye to the gamer who bought it for games and not for mining
