Optimised Settings - Which graphics options have the largest performance impact?

If your graphics card supports VRS, your fastest avenue to increased performance is by setting VRS to balanced mode. Beyond that, disabling Resident Evil's FidelityFX CACAO and enabling the game's standard Ambient can deliver a notable performance uplift. That said, AMD's CACAO looks a lot better than the RE Engine's standard AO implementation. Turning Ambient Occlusion off will result in a huge performance uplift for those that need it. 
  
Unlike Resident Evil's 2/3 remakes, Volumetric Lighting has little impact on Resident Evil Village's performance, as the game makes practically no use of this feature. Screen Space Reflections also has a minor performance impact, with AMD claiming that this is due to Capcom's integration of AMD's FidelityFX SPD feature, which accelerates texture mapping and post-processing using asynchronous compute. 

Most other graphics settings have a minor performance impact, though it is worth noting that these settings will have different performance impacts on older GPU architecture and lower-end graphics card.

Strangely, in our benchmarking area, most individual ray tracing settings had a small performance impact. Making us believe that enhanced ray tracing performance needs multiple settings changes to have a notable performance impact. Sadly, we have not had the time to test the hypothesis further.

Great review WYP, Good to see the 2080 Ti at roughly 3070 performance, Makes me less sad about not being able to upgrade Quote

Thanks Dice. I think a lot of people will be glad that this game doesn't need an upgrade to run well.Quote

Don't really have much choice to upgrade and no way in hell am I paying 50% over MSRP, I wanted to get either a 3080 or 6800XT but the cheapest I've seen them going for is £1000, That is a massive NO from me.Quote
