1440p Performance Tested - Ray Tracing On and Off

Far Cry 6 PC Performance Review and Optimisation Guide

1440p performance - High-end cards are still CPU-limited  

Our 1440p performance charts tell a similar story to our 1080p performance charts. Far Cry 6 is CPU/memory limited, and that makes average and minimum framerates that are far above 60 FPS difficult to achieve. While the game appears to be well optimised on the CPU side, things are a little lacking on the CPU front. 

Even so, 60+ FPS experiences are fairly easy to achieve on today's high-end hardware at 1440p.

Ray Tracing On

At 1440p, GPUs like AMD's RX 6600 XT will need to rely on FidelityFX Super Resolution to achieve 60+ FPS framerates at 1440p when Ray Tracing is enabled. For Nvidia's RTX 2060, FSR will deliver a performance boost, but this should be used alongside lower image quality settings to avoid using FSR's lower quality modes. FSR looks best when using its Quality and Ultra Quality modes, offering an excellent balance between image quality and performance.

Tried the game. Boring repeat of the same political drizzle the last few pushed out... The RT in the benchmark is atrocious. Just look at the people and the cars moving on the wet road towards the end. The cars tyres are ghostly blue underneath.

Dont think I lasted 20mins before uninstalling it.Quote

Thoroughly enjoying this game, the whole story and the craziness of everything in it. And it looks so good at times, reminds me of the first Farcry game which at the time was gorgeous.Quote
