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.
