Syndicate - PC performance graphics benchmarks of Graphics Cards

We would like to express our gratitude to Electronic Arts for providing us with a copy of the game for testing.

Syndicate is a first-person shooter game for PC and game consoles, developed by the Swedish company Starbreeze Studios. The game was released in the first quarter of 2012. The main character named Miles Kilo, a special agent of Eurocorp, carries out dangerous assignments for a corporation involved in a power struggle between the Syndicates.

 Review: Playability 

Taking the storyline and remnants of the former popularity of the 1993 tactical game Syndicate as a basis, Starbreeze made a modern remake in the spirit of cyberpunk, changing the genre to action. Although many players expected the game to return in a similar style, the developers had their own views. Apparently they thought that action will convey the story more vividly than tactical action.

В будущем, похожем на мир Макиавелли, власть делят не правительства, а коммерческие синдикаты. В информационном мире all человечество давно перешло к использованию имплантов, наделяющих носителя невиданными ранее способностями. Разумеется, у любой медали есть обратная сторона.

The syndicates that create the implants do not miss the opportunity to use them in a continuous internecine struggle for power. Conflict regulators are specially trained, genetically and electronically modified intelligence agents, including our main character.

We invite you to evaluate part of the Syndicate game walkthrough in HD resolution, where you can see for yourself the quality of this product: 

Syndicate is a good game, but the game would have benefited from more time to polish it. All the charm of the gameplay is revealed in a more or less long passage. 


 Review: Graphics

Essentially, Syndicate is based on the outdated DirectX 9 and is more focused on current generation consoles. According to the developers themselves, transferring the graphics part to a more recent stage in the form of DirectX 11 would have entailed a very labor-intensive process, which the studio workers did not dare to undertake.

Visually the game looks harmonious and neat. But nothing more. By modern standards it can be considered quite mediocre. This applies to both the environment and the game characters. The only drawback is the excessive amount of glow used, which in some places blinds all visibility, which sometimes just infuriates.

Since the project was mainly aimed at multi-platform, in the graphics subsection we see a minimum of graphic settings that do not globally affect the final image. Ultimately, we can set the graphics settings to the permissible maximum without fear of approaching a critical loss of performance. And then we move directly to the graphics tests themselves.

 Review: Resource-intensive game 

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. The minimum and average frame size is taken as the performance indicator. Below is the configuration of our test systems.

Test configuration

test stands

Test bench No. 1 based on the Intel Socket 1155 platform

Test bench No. 2 based on the Intel Socket 1366 platform

Test bench No. 3 based on the AMD Soket AM2 platform

Test bench No. 4 based on the AMD Soket AM3 platform

Test bench No. 5 based on the AMD Soket AM3 platform

Test bench No. 6 based on the AMD Soket AM3 platform

Test bench No. 7 based on the Intel Socket 1155 platform

Наши video cards тестировались при роздільніх здатностях екрану 1680х1050, 1920х1080 и 2560х1600 при максимальных настройках качества графики допустимых игрой. Технология NVIDIA 3D Vision не тестировалась ввиду отсутствия полной поддержки, а  AMD Eyefinity не "дружит" с игрой. Эффективность работы SLI и Cross Fire находится на приемлемом уровне.

Testing at maximum quality settings 1680x1050 

sys 1680

При разрешении 1680х1050 при максимальных настройках качества допустимый уровень производительности показали video cards all наши тестируемые video cards.

Testing at maximum quality settings 1920x1080 

sys 1920

При разрешении 1920х1080 на максимальных настройкахдопустимый уровень производительности показали так же all наши тестируемые video cards.

Testing at maximum quality settings 2560x1600 

sys 2560 

При разрешении 2560х1600 на максимальных настройках минимальный уровень производительности показали video cards уровня Radeon HD 5770 или GeForce GTS 450. Оптимальными решениями для данных настроек станут Radeon HD 5770 or GeForce GTX 460SE.

CPU dependency testing

Syndicate 2012_02_28_22_41_16_487

We tested processor dependence on 12 models of basic configurations that are relevant today. The test was carried out in those places where the value of video cards for the game is minimal and its load was less than 99%, this time at a resolution of 1024x768 with maximum graphics quality settings.

As with video addiction, Syndicate's processor dependence is at the proper level. The game is largely optimized for 2 cores and doesn’t need more.

 Graph 3-5 Syndicate

The graphics in the game are not bad, but nothing more. Everything looks harmonious and neat. The only drawback is the excessive amount of glow used, which sometimes just infuriates...

 Opt 5 Syndicate

Optimization in Syndicate is excellent and will allow most modern PC players to enjoy the gameplay without lag.

We express our gratitude to all the manufacturing companies that were able to provide test equipment for our GPU tests and we hope that in the future their number will increase significantly!

How can I set the resolution to 1360x768, otherwise I only have 1280x720?

A game to relieve your soul

Good game, stupid, but relaxing. Playing this a couple of times a week for an hour is just the right time to distract yourself.

It’s a pity that their resolutions are not so great, I would like 1280x1024.
What for if it doesn’t slow down at 2560...
