Middle Earth: Shadow of War PC Performance Review

Graphical Options and Settings 

Middle Earth: Shadow of War has released with a large number of graphical options on PC, including advanced features like resolution scaling and variable resolutions, allowing users to allow the game to adjust itself to help reach desired resolution/framerate targets. 

The game also includes a built-in benchmarking utility, which is reasonably accurate at judging your system's performance in this title, especially for game locations at the start of "Act II" of the game.    

One of the biggest issues in this game's graphical options menu is the lack of any FoV (Field of View) options, which will be an issue for anyone that is particularly sensitive to simulation sickness at certain FoV values. The lack of this feature is highly disappointing, especially given the fact that most PC gamers would call FoV options a "standard" feature.

In regards to Vega, apparently it performs far better than Nvidia. A 64 is far ahead if the 1080 and the 56 is slightly above it. At least according to a different review.

It is good to see though that this is not another crappy black boxed Nvidia TWIMTBP title. Having agnostic results and being GPU limited is how it should be.
Nice review and thanks for taking the time. Since the DRM slowed you down a bit.Quote

Where do you see that? I only saw Vega win in Forza which makes sense since Microsoft had that game optimized for AMD specific hardware (Thanks Xbox).

Not sure if that one game equates to GPU competition or the VEGA performing "FAR BETTER THAN NVIDIA".Quote
