Usually PC games look better than their console counterparts. However, looking better does not mean performing better. Today, let’s look at the most demanding PC games!
1. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (2016)
This game was released in August. Right of the bat, it managed to hook players with its stunning visual, and he gameplay is also very good. Take the role of Adam Jensen, an enhanced human, and embark on an adventure that will forever change the world. Such an interesting setting will make players want more. The level of details in the game is top-notch. However, that means you will have to stretch your PC’s processing power to the limit.
If you select the “Ultra” settings for this game, not even the strongest processor will be able to handle it. Yes, even with the fastest GPU, the game cannot come anywhere near 60fps at 1440p ultra. That is also without 4xMSAA. If you turn 4xMSAA on, single GTX 1080 card will ove the game at 20-25fps on 1440p resolution. You can also notice the difference when running on lower settings as well, as the level of details in “Ultra” is very clear. At least, you can know why your PC cannot run on the settings!
2. Rise of the Tomb Raider (2015)
Although released last year, this game still has a place on this list of most demanding PC games right now. The adventure of Lara Croft will be even more impressive if you put everything at max settings. The scenery will be breathtaking. However, turning on max settings, especially the VXO will drop the performance by more than 20 per cent. With the GTX 1080 card, it will fall below 60 fps mark. You know how demanding this is!
3. Battlefield 1 (2016)
Having just been released quite recently, Battlefield 1 is also on this list of most demanding PC games. It has already broken records for DICE. The World War I cannot come any more realistic than this. At max settings, it is as if you are on the battlefield. In most cases, a core i5 processor is not really something to worry about. However, with this game, there will be a sharp drop in performance when switching from a 6-core i7 processor to a 4-core i5 processor. During intense sequences, the frame rate will drop below 60 fps. It is truly demanding!
4. Grand Theft Auto V (2016)
The PC version of this game was just released last year. The game has been growing impressively ever since its release on console, and the PC version is just the icing on the cake. Even though the GTA series is not known for requiring top class PC, the fifth installment can really test your device. Maxing out every options, enabling Nvidia PCSS, 4xMSAA, and performance will drop to around 60 fps for a high-end PC, with periodic dips. This is truly a step up for the franchise.
5. Hitman (2016)
This famous stealth action game will not punish your system as much as the other games on this list. However, stretch the settings to maximum, and your device will also be stretched out too. It’s not just about the graphics card, you will want to have a good CPU as well, preferably with as many cores as possible. Then you run the game in DX12 mode to fully utilize these cores. To have 60 fps at 1080p, you need to have GTX 980/1060 6GB or RX470! That is also quite impressive!
