Ghost Recon: Wildlands Closed Beta PC Performance Review

4K Screenshot Graphical Comparison - Part 2

Ghost Recon: Wildlands Closed PC Performance Review

4K Screenshot Graphical Comparison 

Simply put, Ghost Recon: Wildlands looks atrocious at low settings, lacking all shadows, all environmental reflections and high-resolution textures on the majority of in-game objects.    

At low and medium settings the game can suffer from a lot of texture pop-in and other texture streaming issues, though this was a lot less noticeable on AMD hardware. This is likely a bus that will be ironed out before the game's final retail release, though it is no doubt disappointing to see.    

We can see that draw distances make noticeable changes at all graphical presets, with Very High settings affecting objects in the far off mountains and hillsides. While the game still looks good with lower draw distances, the very high preset certainly has a noticeable effect on object pop-in in the world, delivering a much more seamless experience.  

Again PC gamers will want to settle with a minimum of Medium settings, as the game simply looks awful at lower graphical settings, though Low settings will have a huge performance impact that will make the game playable on some very low-end hardware configurations.

As far as I could tell in the comparison photos the difference between high and very high is view distance and shadows don't look blurred.Quote

I'm pretty sure the game is pretty broken right now. Using the benchmark, which I may add, gives a great set of graphs to look at, shows that my framerate is on average 42 with highs of 60 (vsync) and lows of 30.

However, looking at the graphs, my CPU usage is around 50-60% with my GPU around 60-70% when it goes down to the 30-40FPS points. So neither CPU or GPU are being fully utilised. For the brief parts of the benchmark that do allow my CPU and GPU to go above that level, I get 55-60 FPS.

I'm hoping this will be fixed pretty quickly as I do enjoy the game, just need it to work before I order it!Quote

Game is a mess imo. Feels wrong, very arcadey. I'm so disappointed.

People will say it's only a beta but we#re only a month from release...Quote

Yup I haven't played it but from what I can remember with The Division frame rates did not improve all of a sudden when it went to the full game. In fact, they were exactly the same.

I think we just have to accept that this round of console slop just runs really badly Quote
