AMD Radeon VII running Crysis 3, Resident Evil 2 Remake, Assassin's Creed Odyssey & more in 8K/High

DSOGaming writes: "YouTube’s ‘TheSpyHood’ has shared a video, showing Crysis 3, Resident Evil 2 Remake, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Battlefield 5, Far Cry 5 and more running in glorious 8K resolution. Contrary to the previous 8K videos we’ve shared in the past, however, TheSpyHood only used High settings in order to run these games on the AMD Radeon VII."

Nice! This shows just how pointlessly demanding ultra settings are. You can barely see any difference by lowering settings to high and in some games even medium still looks great.

gamingunited42d ago

That's misleading. Ultra isn't a set group of post processing items, what is part of "ultra" varies wildly from game to game so what is easily noticeable changes from game to game.

starchild42d ago

I don't agree. It varies from game to game and sometimes there's a huge difference between ultra and high settings. Even when it's somewhat more subtle I'm the kind of person that notices those improvements and I'm still glad to have the options to make the games look better.

ButtAnihilator42d ago

Sure, I'm not saying that games shouldn't have extra-demanding settings -- options are great --, I'm just saying that such settings usually offer greatly diminishing returns and that you shouldn't feel bad if you can't run modern games completely maxed.

MrDead42d ago

Also with some mods or some simple .ini tweaks you can make ultra settings look lame.

Not in 60fps though. More like 20fps

This makes me feel really good about PS5.

Like no, I don't expect 8K60 or even 8K30.

But some good looking CB 4K60 isn't off the table. I'm hoping 1800p60 is the norm from the launch with PS5.

It's a $700 card, they won't be using anything close to this card in next gen consoles.

OmnislashVer3642d ago (Edited 42d ago )

Are you like immune to context? I said I don't expect 8K like this card.

Navi is downscaled and an evolution of this architecture. Still relevant.

If Tesla makes improvements to the Model X and says they'll make them to the Model 3 as well we can expect similar improvements, just proportionately lower. Not a hard concept to grasp.

We got 8K30 with this card and I said I hoped for 1800p60 with PS5. I never claimed PS5 would get this card's performance.

Vegamyster42d ago

Well that's good considering these cards are just good enough for 4k 60 fps in some games let alone anything above that lol, that wasn't the point of my comment. Given this is a top of line card and what comes to the consoles will more likely be middle tier card/apu ect designed to work in a console sized box that won't have the cooling support of a tower, architecture only does so much. Unless the settings are toned down you won't get 1800p 60 Fps unless they have a premium console that costs more or they drop the resolution, 30 fps will most likely being the standard for high resolution games with decent visuals.

starchild42d ago

That's true, but the other thing people don't realize is that 4k/60fps isn't a fixed target. Next gen games are going to be significantly more demanding to run without even factoring in higher framerates and resolutions. It's not like we're talking about running current gen games on next gen consoles.

Devs will always tend to push prettier visuals at 30fps than lower quality visuals at 60fps. I mean, if devs had wanted to they could have had their games running at 4k/60fps on current consoles, but those games would have looked like PS3/360 games.

The most likely thing to expect for next gen consoles is that 60fps may become more common on simpler games, but AAA games with good visuals will still mostly be 30fps.

Navi is it's own thing not sure it's even using GCN

bigc07200442d ago

While this is definitely true, if nect gen isn't 60fps minimum...nobody should buy them. If you can make games look realistic af, then you can make them buttery smooth af. Ya know?

I would hope so, the thumbnail picture seems to suggest the AMD Radeon VII is 7 stories tall

Bladesfist42d ago (Edited 42d ago )

This card excels at 4K and above, that's when it starts to compete with the 2080 (albeit still slower). But at 1440p this card is 5% slower than the 2 year old 1080 Ti and launches at the same price it did. It's a 7nm card vs a 16nm card but manages to be slower, louder, more power hungry and priced the same as the 2080 / 1080 Ti which makes it a hard card to recommend.

I know that they are just selling off failed instinct chips with some disabled workstation features but it just doesn't seem like a good buy unless you want a workstation card that can also game nearly as well as the competition.

I do hope AMD will make separate gaming focused high end cards in the future.
