Far Cry Primal PC Performance Review

Game Settings and Graphical Options

 

In terms of Graphical settings Far Cry Primal is very similar to Far Cry 4, offering the ability to easily change your resolution and aspect ratio when needed and the ability to easily turn off V-Sync. In side the Advance Graphics Menu the game does not have any option for Nvidia HairWorks like Far Cry 4 did, though this is unsurprising given the effects performance impact in the last game and the fact that this new title is not advertised as a GameWorks title or bundles with Nvidia GPUs this time.

The game has a built in Benchmarking utility which preforms very close to actual gameplay, making it a great tool for testing your in-game settings.

In the Keyboard and Mouse options you will have the option to completely redefine all of the games controls, allowing you to control the game the way you want to, which is something that is a must for a game where you have so many options like throwing your weapon, lighting it on fire and the games constant hunting/gathering, all of which need to be done quickly/ on the fly.

Below are the game settings/presets that we used to test the game. Testing the game with these different settings will give you guys a great starting point for your own personal in-game settings.

From Normal settings onward the game uses SMAA, greatly reducing the visual aliasing in the game, really improving the visuals of this game given it's grass and foliage filled environments.

Decent review but I have some gripes considering your write-up. In about 3,5 A4 pages of written text I found major mistakes either grammatically or just contextual and that was me just skimming the review.
I.e.
"Lately many critics has said that Ubisoft[...]"
"In a many cases here that the AMD R9 380 has higher minimum framerates than that GTX 960 has averages[...]"
"[...]very impressive fro such a[...]"
"Moving to the high end to the Nvidia GTX 980Ti and the R9 Fury X we can see that Nvidia has the clear advantage[...]"

Also your punctuation has to be worked on.
It's a well produced review but your syntax is just terrible IMO which makes the whole review unpleasant to read.
But you could work on that fro sure.Quote

Thank you for your clear an honest assessment, it is certainly something that I need to work on.
It is clear that I need to take more time rereading these, which is something that I will be doing in the future.

Anything else that you would like to add would be greatly appreciated, including any extra performance date that people would like to see included in these reviews.Quote

Page 6, on the first 380 tests you have the min set as 82 and the avg at 73.. pretty sure that's mixed up

As always a nice quick readQuote

The game seems to run quite well so far. I have not yet seen any bugs or glitches and its fairly well optimized, even at 4k.

This is the in game benchmark with a gtx 980:
