RAGE 2 runs like a charm on older CPUs + 4K Screenshots + PC Gameplay Footage

RAGE 2 releases tomorrow and since there are a lot of PC gamers wondering how the PC version looks and performs, we’ve decided to share below some 4K screenshots on Ultra settings, as well as a video showing 10 minutes of PC gameplay footage from it.

In order to capture these 4K screenshots, we used an Intel i7 4930K (overclocked at 4.2Ghz) with 16GB of DDR3 RAM at 2133Mhz, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080Ti, Windows 10 64-bit and the GeForce driver 430.53.

Let’s start with some really great news. RAGE 2 is powered by the APEX Engine and takes advantage of the Vulkan API, and we are happy to report that the game runs like a charm on older CPUs.

At 1080p/Ultra settings, we were GPU limited (I believe this is the first time we see our RTX2080Ti being fully utilized at just 1080p). Our Intel i7 4930K was able to run the game with a minimum of 134fps and an average of 142fps. At 2560x1440, we were getting a minimum of 93fps and an average of 101fps.

Our PC Performance Analysis will go live tomorrow so stay tuned for more (as we’ll include numbers of AMD’s GPUs).

Enjoy the following screenshots and PC gameplay video!
