Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has gotten a wide load of appraisals as it released not so long ago and there are probably many people who are wondering how the game performs on different hardware. These benchmarks below shall answer most questions about how the game runs.
A common testbench was used to benchmark the newest game from Ninja Theory with different graphic cards and it was a pleasant surprise to see that the game performs remarkably well on mid-range cards! The CPU used was an i7-6800K clocked at 4.1GHz along with 32gigs of Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2666MHz and the motherboard was an ASUS X99A-II.
The cards tested ranged from an RX 460 all the way to a GTX 1080 and the results stated that the game is quite optimized for lower-end cards. There aren’t much options that you can play with in the graphic settings which most people will be disappointed to know but the game does have ultrawide support (21:9) which is nice.
The first card, the entry-level RX 460, can dish out 30fps on the very high preset of the game. To bring these numbers up, you can lower the settings for better performance. An RX 570 is needed to run the game at 60fps at least while the RX 470 had an average of 63 fps which is a good number.
1440p 60fps wasn’t possible on a GTX 1060 so you’re going to need at least a GTX 1070 which can average about 67 fps while the 1080 can do 80 on this resolution. The game is definitely demanding when moving up in the resolution range.
Not even a GTX 1080 could handle 4K 60fps performance so a 1080 Ti might be preferred for that goal (although other tests reveal that the 1080 Ti also struggles in this department). The 1070 can handle 34 fps at 4K while the 1080 runs it at 42 fps. The Titan Xp could be the card that might be able to handle a solid 4K 60fps for this game.
Let us know in the comments section what you think about these benchmarks and if your PC is able to handle the game. Stay tuned for more!
