Call of Duty: WWII PC Performance Review

CPU Benchmarks - Ryzen & Intel - Does this fight need strong CPU cores?  

Methodology

Full on CPU performance testing is something that is relatively new in our PC game performance analysis pieces, with Ryzen performance being a new addition to our hardware test suite.

Here we have tested the game using an Intel i7 6850K Broadwell-E Hex-core and an AMD Ryzen 7 1700X over a variety of core configurations when playing the game at 1080p max settings on a GTX 1080. Both CPUs are run at similar clock speeds.

We ran our Ryzen 7 1700X with 8/16, 6/12, 4/8 and 4/4 core/thread configurations to closely match results from Ryzen 7, 5 and 3 processors. Note that in all of these tests that 16MB of L3 cache was active and that these are not exact emulations of each Ryzen series CPU at the same clock speeds. Even so, these results represent a reasonable ballpark figure.

On the Intel side, we tested 6/12, 4/8, 4/4 and 2/4 core configurations to represent Intel's current generation i3, i5 and i7 CPU core configurations. Both CPUs are clocked at 4.0GHz.

Call of Duty: WWII

With Call of Duty: WWII it is clear that at 1080p max settings that the game is primarily GPU limited, with only our dual-core, quad-thread configuration falling behind in terms of game performance. This is great news for those who want to play this game at ultra-high framerates, as it looks like any strong quad-core are greater system will be able to easily handle constant 100+ FPS gameplay with enough GPU power or lower graphical quality settings. 

When playing the Call of Duty: WWII at higher framerates the game can become a little more CPU-limited, though at this point the game is already playing at well over 100FPS and tends to be more single-thread limited than CPU core limited. Regardless, users of CPUs with four or more strong CPU cores should not have an issue running this game with steady 60+ FPS framerates.

AMD used to be great with COD games. The last title saw Fury X easily beating 980Ti.

I'm not sure how I feel about this game. At times it gets me excited to reminisce and go back to my early days of PC video gaming by trying to complete the first Call of Duty on Veteran difficulty, but the same issues that were present 10-15 years ago are still present now. Call of Duty as a franchise has aged poorly in my opinion. While it performs well, the graphics don't look very impressive to me. The story seems overly macho. It just feels so phoned in and fake.Quote

Going to get this but not yet. My gaming partner and I played through BLOPS III in co op, and even though the story made no sense and it was terrible it was still lots of fun because of the co op. I have just bought us Infinite Warfare and when we are done with that we are getting this also.

Props to AV for keeping Co Op a part of their games. Very important, IMO.Quote

Note that the Single player doesn't support co-op. only the zombie mode does.Quote

He means WWII, the campaign is single-player only, though online co-op is still available in Zombies mode (not sure if it has split-screen on PC...).Quote
