You wouldn’t want to play games where the fps is constantly dropping and lag is quite prominent right? It is actually one of the worst problems in the gaming industry today and it is only getting stronger day by day. We expect new generation games to be more optimized but I guess we are far from that goal at the moment. Therefore, if you ask me I would say that it is indeed necessary for players to tweak the graphics or video settings of every game they play before they start playing it in order to come up with a combination of decent visuals and good performance.
It is always recommended that instead of rushing towards the gameplay as soon you buy a game, take some time and figure out a combination of settings that suits your gaming rig the best. It will help towards getting good performance and won’t hinder your overall experience.
In this article we are taking a look at the latest release from Perfect World Entertainment, Remnant From the Ashes. If you take a look at the system requirements of Remnant From the Ashes you would be easily able to tell that it is not actually a light game. The minimum requirement states that you need atleast a AMD RX 470 to run this game at the lowest settings. And if you don’t know, a RX 470 is a more powerful graphics card than the Nvidia GTX 1050 ti. So if players don’t use the settings that is best for their PC then they won’t be able to escape problems like low fps, lag, crashes, etc.
Remnant From The Ashes – Best Graphics or Video Settings
In order to find out the best combination of settings for a game, it is always recommended to run that game on a mediocre or medium end gaming PC. Running benchmarks on high end systems won’t make any sense for operations like these. Though the system requirements of Remnant: From the Ashes is on the higher side we still went ahead and ran it on a very basic and mediocre gaming PC. Here are the full specifications of our rig:
- CPU : Intel i3 8100
- GPU : MSI GTX 1050 ti
- RAM : 16GB DDR4 2400mhz
- HDD : 1 TB 7200 rpm
- SSD : 128 GB
The graphics or video settings we decided to go with :
Go to Settings > Video
Display Mode : Fullscreen
Resolution : 1920×1080
Motion Blur : Off [Personal preference]
Vertical Sync : Disabled
Shadow Distance : 50
Shadow Quality : Low
Anti-Aliasing : Medium
View Distance : Medium
Texture Quality : Medium
Post Processing : Low
Effects Quality : Medium
Foliage Quality : Medium
Maximum Frames Per Second : 0
Minimize Input Latency : Off
We played the game for almost 2 hours and we were surprised at the performance that we are getting. The FPS never dropped below 50. For the most part it was hovering around 60-70 and was only dropping to 50 when we were having two or more enemies on our screen.
