Call of Duty: WWII PC Performance Review

Low-end GPU showdown - is 2GB of RAM enough? 

In recent months we have started to see our older R9 380 and GTX 960 Strix GPUs struggle in modern games, sometimes because of the GPU's raw compute performance but a lot of the time things come down to memory.  

Thankfully Call of Duty WWII is an extremely scalable title, though it is clear that this game needs to be scaled back quite far to be playable at a higher framerate. 

One thing to note here is that the game's higher texture quality settings recommend that players have more than 2GB of VRAM, resulting in a sub-par visual experience. The game is playable, but not anywhere near as pretty as it could be. Thankfully the game's multiplayer mode is much easier to run than the single-player section that we have tested, but that does not mean that we don't need to scale back a little further to get a solid 60FPS framerate. 

One thing that needs to be stated here is that our benchmarking sequence comes from a demanding area in the game's campaign, offering some of the lowest framerates that the game has to offer. Typically the game will run at higher framerates than this, though many of the game's in-engine cutscenes can actually perform worse, though this is not that big of an issue because players can barely interact with these scenes.

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
