The renowned Professor Van Helsing teams up with Count Dracula and his undead army to retake the city of Borgovia from the crazed mutant destroyers sent by a mad scientist. Such a plot awaits us in an RPG from Neocore Games, which is scheduled for release in the first half of 2013.

Players will experience a fantastic gothic noir universe - the Borg Mountains, reminiscent of 19th century Europe, filled with magic, amazing technology and monsters. In a new video, the developers demonstrate the capabilities of the main character Van Helsing in the ability to use his great sword, a deadly pistol and some hidden techniques in the wild.

With different quality settings, the graphics quality in The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing changes quite significantly, as does performance.

General visual design and game physics

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is a very good project, where the quality is visible in everything - both in the playful component and in the graphics. Despite the fact that the game's release is also announced on XboX, we have not just a console port, but rather the opposite - a very high-quality PC gaming project.

Everything is relative. And if we compare The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing with its closest competitor, Diablo 3, then graphically the first one looks more attractive. We have more graphic settings, a more detailed living game world, and, of course, better effects.

GPU test

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 average and minimum FPS were taken as performance indicators. Below is a video of the test segment:    

Our video cards were tested at separate screen sizes of 1920x1080 and 2560x1600 with the maximum graphics quality settings allowed The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. Multi-chip configurations from NVIDIA and AMD showed zero increase in performance, which indicates insufficient driver optimization.

Testing at maximum quality settings 1920x1080

 vh 1920

At a resolution of 1920x1080 at maximum settings, an acceptable level of performance was shown by video cards of the Radeon HD 5770 level or GeForce GTS 450The optimal video cards will be Radeon HD 5770 or GeForce GTS 450.

Testing at maximum quality settings 2560x1600

 vh 2560

At a resolution of 2560x1600 at maximum settings an acceptable level of performance was shown by video cards of the Radeon HD 6850 level or GeForce GTX 550 TiThe optimal video cards will be Radeon HD 7750 or  GeForce GTX 460.

VRAM test

memory GPU

Testing of video memory consumed by the game was carried out by the program MSI Afterburner. The indicator was based on results on top video cards from AMD and NVIDIA with separate screen sizes 1920x1080 and 2560x1600 with different anti-aliasing settings.

Testing at maximum memory GPU quality settings 

 vh vram

The recommended amount of video memory usage for this game is about 500 MB for basic graphics quality settings. For ultra resolutions and maximum settings, you will need about 700 megabytes of video memory.

CPU test

 VanHelsing x86_2013_04_23_19_07_50_904

We tested processor dependence on 19 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 1680x1050 with maximum graphics quality settings.

Loading of processor cores at maximum quality settings 1920x1080 AMD%

 vh amd

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing supports more than two processor cores to some extent, but does not fully utilize their resources.

RAM test

3930K

Testing of the RAM consumed by the game was carried out by monitoring directly through the Windows task manager. The test was carried out on the basic configuration of Core i 7 3970X@4.9 GHz with 16GB DDR3 2400 MGz pre-installed memory.

Testing at various quality settings

vh ram 

As we can see, with various basic quality settings, the amount of RAM consumed in The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing ranges from 700-1000 megabytes. Thus, for a comfortable game you need to have 2 minimum GB of RAM installed in your PC.

[quote name="LEOPARD680GTX"]And again we see almost a single merger of TITANIUM with a video card 2 times cheaper, namely 7970GE)) about TITANIUM, I will constantly mock TITANIUM))) :lol:
Here you need to mock your 680, which was sold at 2 times cheaper than the 7870: lol: And I’ll mock the titan with my 7970 8)[/quote] Well, I have two of them, so whatever one may say, I’ll be the only one mocking you anyway: lol: Continue to enjoy one game :lol:
