WILD HEARTS new feature

WILD HEARTS runs 30-40% faster on AMD’s CPUs, still stutters like crazy

Omega Force has released a new patch for the PC version of WILD HEARTS that, among other things, improved CPU performance, particularly for AMD processors. As such, we’ve decided to re-benchmark the game on our AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D.

For our benchmarks, we used an AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D, 32GB of DDR5 at 6000Mhz, and NVIDIA’s RTX 4090. We also used Windows 10 64-bit, the GeForce 531.26. It’s also worth noting that we installed the game on a Samsung 980 Pro SSD 1TB M.2 NVMe PCI Express 4.0.

WILD HEARTS new benchmarks

Now the good news here is that WILD HEARTS now runs 30-40% faster than its previous version. With this performance patch, our minimum framerates skyrocketed from 90fps to 126fps. That’s at 1080p/Max Settings. Moreover, our framerates jumped from 130fps to 170fps.

Unfortunately, though, the game still stutters like crazy. Omega Force has done nothing to somehow address the game’s awful traversal stutters. As such, the game remains unplayable (at least in my opinion) as it never feels smooth. Yes, we’re now getting over 120fps at all times, but the stuttering is really awful in this game.

All in all, Omega Force has at least improved overall CPU performance. Still, the game’s biggest culprit is its stuttering issues, and that’s what the team should be addressing. After all, we could get over 60fps at all times when the game launched, even with an Intel Core i9 9900K. And yes, the stuttering remains as awful as showcased in the following video.
