Resizable BAR Tested with Intel - The Power of Boosted Memory Access

Assassin's Creed Valhalla

Like our original AMD testing for Smart Access Memory/Resizable BAR, enabling Resizable BAR on an Intel-powered system has a transformative effect on Assassin's Creed Valhalla. 1st percentile, average and maximum framerates are all boosted, so much so that our Resizable BAR results at 1440p are very close to our standard (Resizable BAR disabled) 1080p results. 

It is clear from this result that Resizable BAR support can benefit Intel-powered systems, which is great for systems like our i9-10850K test system.

Pretty impressive to say the least. Almost like DLSS magic where a click of a switch and boom instant fps increase, not to the same extent but still impressive. It'll be interesting to see how much impact alongside DLSS this would have. Would it be another similar magical boost? If so Nvidia will really be hammering AMD even more.Quote

Bring on the RTX Bios's with this feature enabled, not sure why Nvidia is taking so long, it seems the driver is already prepped.....

Driver enablement isn't supposed to be coming until the release of the RTX 3060. Nice to see that there is a way to confirm it is working on Nvidia hardware. With AMD you kinda need to trust that it's working...

Nvidia needs to do a lot of validation before it goes public. They need to make sure that enabling this does not add new bugs or degrade performance in some instances.Quote

Yeah I heard that AMD disables Resizable BAR on driver level for many titles, since it can lead to issues.Quote

Guess we'll have to see how it looks with Nvidia then, because if this doesn't create any negative issues, it's an absolute nobrainer.
Let's just hope that motherboard manufacturers don't lock this for the cheaper models...Quote
