Overkill’s The Walking Dead has just been released and we gave it a go with our NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080Ti. And it appears that NVIDIA’s latest high-end graphics card can run the game with 60fps on Ultra settings in native 4K resolution (3840×2160).
This is good news as we’ve seen titles in which the RTX2080Ti was unable to offer a smooth gaming experience in 4K on max settings. Not only that, but Overkill’s The Walking Dead actually looks great. In fact, in some cases it can look even impressive. This is something that really surprised us as its official screenshots did not look as good as what we’re witnessing in the final build.
In order to initially test this game we used an Intel i7 4930K (overclocked at 4.2Ghz) with 16GB RAM, Windows 10 64-bit and the latest version of the GeForce drivers (416.34). We’ve also lowered Anti-Aliasing to Low (as there is no point using Ultra AA in 4K). We also run the game in Borderless Window as we could not enable 4K in fullscreen mode on our 1080p monitor via DSR (this is something that Overkill will have to fix).
We did notice some drops below 60fps (there was one particular scene in which our framerate dropped to 52fps but apart from that, we averaged between 56fps and 72fps).
Below you can find some 4K from the game and as always we’ve kept MSI Afterburner enabled (so that you can get an idea of the game’s performance on the RTX2080Ti).
We’ll be posting these initial 4K impressions in every new triple-A title. Our PC Performance Analysis for Overkill’s The Walking Dead will go live later this week so stay tuned for more. Until then, enjoy the following screenshots!
