Rage: Performance Analysis On The PC

Benchmark Results: Max Detail, 4x AA

Next, we add 4x anti-aliasing to the mix. And, with this more demanding graphics load, we include higher-performance graphics hardware, too. On top of that, we also increase anisotropic filtering and texture resolution to their maximum settings:

Even with the details set to their maximum levels (and 4x AA applied), the Radeon HD 6570 and GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 manage an average fame rate of about 40 FPS and a minimum above 25 FPS at 1080p.

All of the more expensive options (starting with the Radeon HD 5770 and GeForce GTX 550 Ti) achieve 60 FPS across the board, with minimum frame rates above 55.

    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.
