Rage: Performance Analysis On The PC

Benchmark Results: Lowest Detail

We'll start with benchmarks using the game's lowest detail setting (itself a bit of a misnomer, since the only thing getting tweaked down is texture detail). In any case, these benchmarks demonstrate the graphics hardware needed to get a smooth baseline experience from Rage. It turns out that this title isn't very demanding at all, despite its fairly modern-looking visuals.

At 1080p, only the lowly Radeon HD 6450 is incapable of achieving an average of 30 FPS, and the Radeon HD 5570 is 4 FPS short of a minimum 30 FPS. All of the other cards we're testing manage playable frame rates, and the GeForce GTX 550 Ti and Radeon HD 5770 almost hit the 60 FPS limit with their minimums.

    This is an instance of a company making a game for consoles and expecting it to work in PCs. This company will be abandoned by PC gamers, and it will settle in on the consoles. Eventually, they'll die off or change, just like the Red Faction series. This applies for the graphics and the quality of the game.

    Piracy doesn't make the PC world very atractive. Thats the only reason why game developers turn away from the PC, they dont make money.

    I believe there may be a typo, 6570 should be 6670 in the charts? I'm not sure though.

    Carmack said they make for the consoles is for money. You are mistaken if you think piracy is what drives developers away from the PC.

    Any1 know why its running so bad on my PC. I have a Phenom X2 550 3.1 Ghz, and a HD 6950.According to this review, it should be able to run it fine but whenever im playing my CPU is at 100% and it runs choppy as hell. I've installed the new RAGE performance driver, as well as that 11.10 thing, neither helped. I added the cache folder for textures, still choppy. I am curious however, that since I have my Steam on my K drive and not on my C if that could be screwing with the cache, anyone know?

    This game was a big "meh" for me. Hopefully they do a better job on the next game they make.

    You mean Bethesda? I've already broken up with my girlfriend so I don't have to make up illnesses when Skyrim comes out on 11.11.11

    Or did you mean id Software? In which case you're right, they can go to hell.
