Returnal- PC performance graphics benchmarks of old Graphics Cards and Processors

BASIC GAME INFORMATION

 Returnal Win64 Shipping 2023 02 16 21 44 10 880

Returnal testing of older graphics cards was performed to determine performance on these devices. Some players may have older computers or laptops that don't have new graphics cards and need to know how the game runs on their systems. The test results can also be helpful in choosing the most appropriate graphics settings for these older graphics cards to achieve maximum performance and best image quality. Additionally, testing older graphics cards can help players understand what upgrade is needed to improve the performance and experience of playing Returnal.

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

Returnal supported Windows 10/11.The priority and main graphics API for Returnal is DX 12.

GAME ENGINE

Returnal is based on the Unreal Engine 4 game engine, developed and supported by Epic Games. 

AWayOut 2018 03 23 17 37 55 692

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.

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.

QUALITY MODES

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.

Graphics settings in Returnal include parameters such as screen resolution, shadow quality, texture quality, effects quality, and others. Graphics quality settings affect the quality of visuals as well as game performance.

Low graphics settings provide lower quality visuals but may improve game performance on less powerful systems. Medium graphics settings provide moderate visual quality and strike a balance between game quality and performance. High graphics settings provide higher quality visuals, but may slow down game performance on less powerful systems.

Typically, graphics settings with higher quality visual effects consume more computer resources, which can result in slower gaming performance, especially on older or less powerful computers. However, graphics quality settings depend on the player's personal preferences and the configuration of his computer, so you should choose the settings that best combine visual quality and performance.

MSI Afterburner

 
All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality using MSI Afterburner. 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 with low, medium and epic graphics quality settings.

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). The test is carried out on the most powerful CPU in this game and is scaled to other processors, taking into account their testing on NVIDIA and AMD video cards.

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, 2560x1440 and 3840x2160 with various 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 can load up to 12 streams. The game uses 8 threads as efficiently as possible.

RAM TEST

The test was carried out on the basic configuration of the Core i 7 5960X with 16GB DDR4 3200 MHz 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.

CONCLUSION

It can be said that older video cards may have problems playing Returnal on high graphics settings. However, at lower graphics settings, older video cards can handle the game quite well.

Using FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) technology can provide a significant advantage when playing Returnal on older graphics cards. For example, in testing on an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card using FSR, the settings increased frame rates to over 42 FPS on high graphics settings, compared to 35 FPS without FSR. At the same time, the loss in image quality was minimal.

Thus, using FidelityFX Super Resolution can be useful for those who want to run the game Returnal on older video cards and get higher frame rates with minimal loss of image quality.

Overall, if you have an older graphics card and want to play Returnal, then you may need to lower your graphics settings to get a smoother experience.

Heyo.

The rest of the systems testing has finished. I am posting the 2500k+GTX 1070 here, as it is an old system. I will post the 12400f+3060ti on the next gen thread, lol.



There are some framedrops sure, but if you put into perspective that this is not a crossgen game, only exists on ps5 and this cpu existed three years inside the life of the PS3, yeah it's doing great. Imagine that a 2600k would be absolutely ok. I think I will upgrade this system with a 2600k just for fun.

The 1070 is also doing a good job. If I am not mistaken these are essentially ps5 settings too, but I haven't watched digital foundy's video yet, so I don't know.

Absolutely fantastic test. Love them old cards and cpus.

Allow me to post two capped runs I have at the moment. (non monetized channel, just for fun, not clickbaiting)





The 970 did Ok for its age I guess. It does have some drops at the 40s, but I only did not expect to see it hitting 60 at all. Also I forgot to test with the -DX11 switch. If it works it will run much better.

My new rx6600 does not give a shit of course, even at EPIC. That vid would me more relevant on the other thread I guess, but oh well. There's still a 2017 8600K there, so it is on topic. The poor old coffeelakes, are completely out of your testing scope my dear gamegpu, and they were epic cpus. But at least you include the Sandys again, so I cannot complain AT ALL! xD

I will post 2500k+1070 and 12400f+3060ti in a couple of days.

Wow, dark caves, and in quadhd 1080 it doesn’t produce 60 fps even at low settings. And this is Anrial 4, which was always pascal friendly...

5700xt, which came out much later and is considered a more productive solution, fails even more
