Ghost Recon: Wildlands Benchmark Review – Can Your PC Run GR: Wildlands?
GR: Wildlands Benchmark Results – Min, Max, Average
Below are the benchmark results I got. All benchmark runs are set to ultra-preset, and was tested using the following resolutions: 1920×1080 or full HD resolution, 2560×1440 or WQHD, and 3840×2160 or 4K UHD. Remember that these results are using ultra preset, meaning you can get better or higher frame rates using very high or high graphics preset.
GR: Wildlands Benchmark Results – Average and Lows
I know some of you might want to check out the average, 1% low and 0.1% low performance. I decided to include them as this will give you another perspective on the performance aside from the usual min, max and average. If you are not familiar with these metrics I suggest you check out Gamer’s Nexus video here for the explanation. Below are the results I got…
Ghost Recon: Wildlands Benchmark Review – Conclusion
Based on the tests and benchmark results we got, you will need at least a GeForce GTX 1080 (or 1080 Ti) graphics card to run this game using ultra preset at 1080p resolution, and get an average of 60 frames per second. Now that’s a very demanding and graphics intensive game. It’s more demanding than Crysis 3 actually. However, you don’t need to set the graphics at ultra-settings just to enjoy this game. Setting it to high or very high (depending on your graphics card) may give you a pretty decent graphics quality.
Based on the recommended settings, you need at least a GTX 970 / GTX 1060, or an R9 390 / RX 480 at 1080p using high preset to get playable frame rates. It’s more or less accurate. It wasn’t very specific, but toning down the graphics quality to high will give you an average of around 60 fps using a GTX 1060 or an RX 480 / RX 580.
In terms of gameplay, I haven’t finished the game yet and I’m still on the first mission area. I don’t have much time to play since we still got lots of hardware to test and benchmark as well. But I enjoyed the game generally. I’m more of a first person shooter guy, but third person shooter games (like Mass Effect and this one) works for me too; and also RPGs. Ghost Recon: Wildlands is also a challenging game and the map is (really) huge. You can do whatever you want with your targets, or approach the scenario to your liking. You can go wild and shoot them all, or be a ghost and take down the targets quietly, nice and easy. It’s really up to you. That’s one of the reasons why I liked the game because it gives you the freedom and options.
Overall, I would say that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands is fun and challenging, at the same time a demanding and graphics intensive game. I don’t have any problems recommending this game specially if you like third person shooter games.
