CPU Performance - Does Resident Evil Village need a high core count processor?
For our CPU testing, we utilised AMD's Ryzen 9 3950X processor and RX 6800 graphics card. We played through our Resident Evil Village benchmarking area with our processor set to utilise specific core counts. We found that Resident Evil Village doesn't need a powerful processor to run through this testing, seeing minor performance benefits when we started using more than six CPU cores.
With Ray Tracing disabled, framerates of over 100 FPS were very easy to achieve, making Resident Evil Village a great game for users of variable refresh rate monitors.
With Ray tracing enabled, we saw fewer benefits to using a huge number of CPU cores. The game offered similar performance when we used our 4 core, 4 thread CPU configuration when ray tracing is enabled/disabled. This shows that Resident Evil Village's Ray Tracing has a relatively small impact on CPU performance.
