Neon Noir Ray Tracing Benchmark videos

Today Crytek released a benchmark dedicated to Ray Tracing. It's called Neon Noir Ray Tracing Benchmark and you need to open a Crytek account to download it with their own launcher. It's a very short benchmark (1min30) but it's still gorgeous as you're about to find out. With our configuration (i9 9900K @ 4.9Ghz & RTX 2080Ti), the benchmark remains above 100 fps when set to ultra in 1440p while 4K ultra struggles a bit more with around 40 fps. In 4k and very high settings, framerate stays between 55 and 60 fps, which isn't bad at all considering how great it looks. Check out our videos and let us know what you think.

Red Dead Redemption 2, native 4K or resolution scaling?

Playing Red Dead Redemption 2 in native 4K on PC is not a piece of cake, even if you own the best graphics card and best CPU of the market. The game is very generous when it comes to graphics settings, but Rockstar included a bunch of presets to choose from. We gave the balanced preset a try to see if it would allow us to enjoy native 4K and a perfectly smooth framerate (some options are even set to low on that preset, among which lighting quality). In gameplay, it is pretty much the case, except for some close-ups during the muddy and rainy fight against the colossus outside the saloon, but cutscenes see a few frame drops. We only had time to try the preset in Valentine and in the wild so we're bound to encounter areas where framerate will suffer, but what is certain is that playing in native 4K offers much crisper background landscapes compared to playing with an 80% resolution scaling and most settings set on high and medium (and a couple on ultra).

Need for Speed Heat's hard day's night

Need for Speed Heat seems to be like a sort of collection of some of the features found in previous episodes, with races during the day which are reminiscent of Pro Street and night ones which are closer to Underground in terms of visuals and will allow you to compete on more open road segments with cops trying to ruin your car. There is car customization, you can also create your own liveries and modify the sound of your exhaust pipe. It's obviously very arcadey as you can even ram trees and the concrete pillars of some Bridges, but it's meant to a specific audience, one that is not too picky when it comes to plots and characters.

Red Dead Redemption 2 back on PC

We're back with the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 and a mix of ultra, high and medium settings this time. We also set resolution scaling to 80% so it's not native 4K anymore but at least, the framerate seems rock solid for now. We'll keeping searching for the best possible settings with the best possible image quality, so stay tuned.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will make your PC cry

Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available on PC but those who thought they were going to enjoy high frame rates with ultra settings will have to think twice before they launch the game. You see, this port has clearly been built for the future and as Nvidia stated yesterday, it's demanding as hell if you want to push everything to the maximum. We've tried the ultra settings with a 66% resolution scaling and our RTX 2080 Ti struggles to maintain frame rate above the 40s at times when some effects kick in. We'll need more time to tweak the settings to find the best results for us, but until then, here are 2 videos we recorded tonight.

Our PC 4K videos of Need for Speed Heat

Need for Speed Heat is now available for EA Access members so we took a bit of time during our lunch break to capture the first 2 races of this new episode. As you'll see, it looks very much like previous NFS titles, though there is a definite improvement in terms of visuals compared to Payback. Still aliasing remains quite visible in 4K and our RTX 2080 Ti cannot maintain a steady framerate at such a resolution. Lowering resolution scaling to 95% seems to have done the trick, but we haven't been able to play a sufficient amount of time to guarantee the game will be perfectly smooth. Until we can see a little more of the game and record some more gameplay clips, here are 2 PC videos.

The Outer Worlds 4K landscapes video

Better late than never. The Outer Worlds was released about a week ago and reviews came out even before that, not to mention early gameplay videos. Because we were sent a PC code quite late, we decided to take our time to be able to play the game a little before we can tell you about it. Today though, we are just going to focus on its visuals which, as you'll see, are partixularly colorful and charming. Technically, it's obviously not a game which is doing incredible things, but artistically and aesthetically we find it absolutely beautiful. What do you guys think?
