Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart PC Performance Review and Optimisation Guide

This game can use a lot of VRAM

As you can see in our 1440p and 4K testing, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart does not run well on systems that do not feature a lot of VRAM. Thankfully, at 1080p (without ray tracing) this game runs well at on GPUs with 8GB or more of VRAM (with 6GB GPUs running well at lower graphical settings), and 1440p gamers with 10GB or more VRAM should have a good time. If you want to play this game with ray tracing, having 12GB of VRAM or more is recommended.

When you start playing Rift Apart with ray tracing at 4K, the game starts running poorly on GPUs with less than 12GB of VRAM, and the game can stutter occasionally on 12GB GPUs when warping through rifts. Thankfully, lower graphical settings can address this. 

Rift Apart showcases how GPUs with lower amounts of video memory can struggle when playing modern games with higher graphical settings.
