Electronic Arts has just released the latest part in the Need for Speed series, Need for Speed: Heat. This new NFS game uses the Frostbite Engine and we’ve decided to share some 4K screenshots from it. Alongside these PC screenshots, we’ll be also sharing our initial 4K PC performance impressions.
In order to capture these screenshots, we used an Intel i9 9900K with 16GB of DDR4 at 3600Mhz. We’ve paired this machine with an NVIDIA RTX 2080Ti, and we also used Windows 10 64-bit and the GeForce 441.12 driver.
Contrary to our previous titles, we’ll be now including the full range of framerates that the RTX2080Ti achieves in a game. So yeah, no more “X game can’t run with 60fps” unless it’s coming from the publishers/developers.
Need for Speed: Heat runs with 43-63fps in 4K and Ultra settings on our NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080Ti. There were some rare occasions in which our framerate got up to 68fps, however the average framerate was around 51-57fps during the night stages. Furthermore, you will notice the framerate drops to 43-48fps even if you use a G-Sync monitor.
In my opinion, owners of the RTX2080Ti should create a custom 1872p resolution. As with other triple-A games, the RTX2080Ti can run Need for Speed: Heat with 60fps in that resolution.
Our PC Performance Analysis for Need for Speed: Heat will go live later this weekend, so stay tuned for more!
