CG writes: Nvidia’s claims that the RTX 3090 can render games in 8K at 60 FPS, ring true for us in this video. We put the game Crackdown 3 through its paces with some interesting results.
But why? lol
If you've ever super-sampled anything you would know why it can make things look better.
I get that part lol
Let's talk about powahhhh of da clawwdd for a second 🤣did they give up with this thing?
Oh right, I didn't get the joke sorry, it just clicked. Hmm, is Crackdown 3 really that bad/universally hated especially as it's on gamepass?
My attempt at humour could have been clearer, in hindsight..! Yeah, sadly Crackdown 3 had been hyped so hard and so long by Microsoft, that when it launched as a mediocre game, it got panned. It was mainly the broken promises about the power of the cloud I think that did it. This was the 'cloud power' poster child for years and it all amounted to nothing, which is a real shame, because if they'd realised their initial vision it could have been special.
I do remember the original vision where entire buildings could be demolished but wasn't that feature relegated to the multiplayer mode? For me, Crackdown 3 comes across quite generic. I suppose if it had the full destruction in the story mode that would have been bad-ass. If Red Faction Guerrilla can do it why not CD?
Crackdown 3 was made for crackdown fans. Hated by non crackdown fans. Enjoyed by crackdown fans.
I played it on PC for a little while via gamepass. It's not nearly as terrible as people would try to make it out to be, but it's the definition of a "meh" game. There's fun to be had if you're bored.
Exactly my thought lol
This game is terrible in any resolution.
It's good it's possible but who would pick this over 4K60 on ultra? It would look far better
100%. This is obviously just showing what can be done with the current highest end hardware, rather than what should be. And if you're splashing out for an RTX 3090 over a 3080 for gaming (small performance delta if not using that huge buffer for productivity), then I guess you'll also consider splashing out for an 8k screen. And, I mean, you'll want to be able to do *something* with it lol.
Who plays this game? lol
Let's be honest here, even with extra high settings at 8k 120fps... it'll still look like crap. Sorry.
RTX 3090 is the king of next gen but 8k is just not ready it will not be for years. 4k is not the norm yet, so this is just stupid to push for 8k. The majority of people still game on 1080p display's it will take a few more years for 4k to become what 1080p is today.
Can't polished turds?
That's good and all but who's gonna play this game lol?
