Prey PC Performance Review

Let's have a look at Prey's performance on the PC platform. Will this be a AAA release for Cryengine or will Prey bring dishonor upon Bethesda?



Read more on Prey's PC performance.

Thanks Mark.

Listen I don't want to be a mega pain or anything but could you lower the settings down a little and run the 1440p benches again? I just want to see if it's VRAM bound and that's why the Fury X isn't so hot at 1440p (good old texture caching FTL).

Thanks for the article, Mark. It's clear that a lot of effort goes into these reviews.

Glad to see that the game's performance is pretty decent, too.

In regard to the partnership between AMD and Bethesda, for this title the optimization work went into the Ryzen CPUs, instead of the GPUs. Although it should have been the other way around but anyways thats what they did

Alien, I'd just run High settings. I couldn't tell a difference between High and Very High, so it shouldn't be a big deal to tone it down. Saves you Vram and gets you extra performance

Poor Radeon. Raja must be peeved with the CPU team getting all the glory.

I'd say right now Ryzen is more important than a Polaris refresh. Makes more money sooo it makes sense. Until Vega comes around

Yeah, Ryzen is bigger bucks. Still, it's surprised to see a 1060 beat a Fury X. That's not just a win for Nvidia, it's a complete thrashing.

"Prey uses less than 4GB of VRAM in all cases except for 4K Very High settings, which means that most modern GPUs should not suffer from any real issues when running this game."

though on several occasions load times did take up to 10 minutes
My game always only takes a few seconds to load. Its never taken this long to load and I am 13 hours in the game.

As I said, it has happened several times during playtesting. The best solution is to just quit the game and try it again.

This does not happen very often, but it happens and it would be negligent not to mention it. I have no doubt some people will never come across this issue, but it is nonetheless something that happened to us.
