Homefront: The Revolution PC Perforamance Review

1080p Testing with the GTX 960 and  R9 380

 

When playing the game at 1080p on our GTX 960 and R9 380 GPUs we were very disappointed to see that we could not play the game at a steady 60FPS. While at low settings we were able to achieve a constant 45+ FPS I cannot help but be disappointed in this games performance, especially given how often we notice objects drawing into view and the rather disappointing lighting quality of low settings. 

The GTX 960 and R9 380 perform pretty evenly in this game, but the GTX 960 does have a slight advantage over its AMD counterpart, that being said this game does not run well on either GPU. This is highly disappointing as we have seen much better looking games achieve much higher framerates on these GPUs.

Argh such a shame. Was looking forward to this (yeah I'm in the minority that enjoyed the first one)

Looks like it's going to be another long, slow process of optimising before it's actually playable at decent settings. Wait for the summer sales -well winter for you lot.Quote

I was really looking forward this game as i also enjoyed the last one. But was disappointed when i had to turn the setting down to medium on my GTX 980ti's just so i could play it. I am going to try the setting in this article to see what difference that makes and also disable SLI as this game doesn't support it.Quote

From the screen shots in the article there doesn't look to be a huge difference between medium and very high. Per-object shadows appear to be the only (massively noticeable) thing I can see which are missing in medium. Just because the preset is named "medium" doesn't mean it's comparable to medium presets on other games.Quote

This is one of those games that has "steam Sale" written all over it. Add it to your collection once the sale price drops to a more comfortable level.

I may pick it up sooner rather than later as it is going to get Linux support. As a Linux user games like this don't come along too often. However if it runs like arse on Windows it doesn't look good for us penguin loving gamers.Quote
