Fallout 4 - AMD vs Nvidia Performance Review

Graphical Comparisons - Low, Medium, High and Ultra Detail settings - part 2

 

In this first set we can see that the detail in the games water changes very little from low to Ultra settings, but the shadows that are visible in the environment become much softer and more realistic on the walls in the distance.

 As we can see in this set of screenshots the edges of shadows change a lot when moving to higher quality settings, making the edges of the shadows much more realistic and removes all of the unwanted aliasing, or jaggedness, of the shadows.

In this city environment we can see again that the shadow quality greatly improves when upping the game settings, removing the shadows aliasing and giving the shadows much softer, especially on the thin shadows of the overhead cables.

Here is also a great place to see the texture improvements, which are most noticeable in the dirt and debris on the pavement/sidewalk and on the lamp post on the right hand side of the screenshots.

Hi

I installed the Nvidia update and went with the recommended settings which were "Ultra" on my GTX 980. I really appreciate your article and photos. I got a couple hours into the game and at 1440P on Ultra it was very smooth for me.

I really am going to go in and make the changes to low quality and turn god rays off eventually. Right now i wish I had a vacation day available to actually play today

Loving it so far

awesome review Mark, lots of info to read up on for those who are not yet playing the game.

it would be awesome if you could add in sli/crossfire scaling for people still rocking older hardware and maybe if you got time to add in i5 vs i7?

only if you got timeQuote

Am I the only one who's not seeing the article/and link in the OP?

Nice write up WYP, although it would be interesting to see some i5 vs i7 comparisons. Someone in a different thread reported a website benchmarking both and there were big differences between them.Quote

I'm finding the performance to be pretty good thus far. I'm getting a steady 60fps pretty much everywhere, with the very occasional drop into the 40's kind of like the way Skyrim was.

That's at 1080p with an i7-6700k and GTX 780 where neither are overclocked.Quote
