No Man's Sky PC Performance Review

4K Testing

 

At 4K we can see that none of the GPUs that we have tested are capable to 4K 60FPS gameplay, though it is worth noting that we do not have a GTX 1080 or a Pascal Titan X to test. One other thing that is worth noting that regardless of what GPU you use you will still have performance dips in some situations. 

Again we can see that AMD is at a huge disadvantage in this game, particularly due to this game's use of the OpenGL API. Hopefully, Hello Games are working on these performance issues, though these may take a long time to implement. 

One thing that would be nice to see in the future is an update that will implement Vulkan API support on the PC, as the next generation API should be able to enhance the games CPU and GPU performance if implemented correctly.  We know that this worked well for DOOM, so it would be great to see Vulkan support in No Man's Sky.

I've played around 20 hours on the game so far and to be honest it's fun for a while but as there's no real goal other than maxing out your inventory and finding a ship with a big inventory, It starts to feel quite empty.Quote

So far, I have only experience one drop in FPS but a game restart solved this. No further issues since.

I really do not like the space combat, it is horrible and pointless, you will die a lot. 3 vs me = death!Quote

am about 30hours in, just at the 3rd system so far, really enjoying just pondering about, dont have any issues running the game itself, but i can do little else at the same time, running 1080 with med/high settings im hitting like 95-100% util on my i7 2600, so i just limited affinity to 6 cores and still hitting like 45-50fps, but can actually watch a stream at the same time. while not the ideal situation, is ok for now, till some stuff gets worked on. 3 systems down eleventy maj-bilillion to go Quote

Please note that I am aware of the newly released experimental Beta patch for No Man's Sky.

Sadly I will not be able to test this new patch today as I am in my hometown today and will be attending a funeral of a close family friend. I will test this new beta patch as soon as I am able.Quote

It's Elite without the fun. It's the grind of Minecraft/MMOs without the goal. The fact the performance is shocking only adds to my belief that this really isn't for me. I'm happy meandering about, but some kind of goal, even a nebulous (ha) one would be nice.Quote
