    Since 1080p is 2megapixels and 3440x1440 is 5, that sounds about right. Also sounds like it scaled nicely.

    I have to try this benchmark.

    Someone earlier said reflections looked blurry. Personally I think games so far with RTX reflections are too good. I’d rather more FPS and more blurry reflections (probably closer to real life...).

    I mentioned blurriness... but if you looked at my card I am running a 760gtx lol

    Holy carp, it's 1gb for the engine and then the freaking bench is another 4.4gb?

    Anyways...

    I finally decided to run the benchmark and damn this thing looks great. Too lazy to post screenshots but I ran this with a 2080 Super and 9900k.

    Very impressive for a software only solution.

    The part I find interesting is that Crytek may be able to find ways to use RT hardware to better 'inform' their software / shader solutions to come up with a way to use RT hardware to improve visuals without impacting performance as much as using RT hardware directly.

    1920x1200 (CPU is currently at 4.8Ghz)
    Edit: My bad, that 7221 I posted must not have been on Ultra, but something is amiss with this benchmark:

    CPU @ 4.8Ghz:

    CPU @ 5Ghz (and I'm 100% sure it's not throttling):

    I tried this 3 times and 4.8Ghz was higher every time. WTF? :confused:

    Glad to see your system bench well since mine is comparable.

    RTX 2070, 1440p. Realized I had Sharpening and Gsync on so turning them off netted a small gain.

    If it was a game, it would be totally fine by these results. FPS is not very consistent tho, Lowest was 47, highest touched the 90's.

    Its a cool demo and all but like all benchmarks I need to see it in an actual title first for it to have context I mean just looking through the posts I see a score of 6000 which yields 60fps and another just shy of 10,000 which again seems to yield 60fps at the same resolution. So I look forward to somebody releasing a game using this because it would probably be beautiful, yet sadly I don't know of any titles coming out that are using Cryengine ont he horizon.

    The 60fps you see on that screen has nothing to do with the score.

    On my 5700X I was getting well north of 60fps at 1080p, usually around 80-90 and some places jumping to over 100.

    For the hell of it I re-ran this at 1080p for comparison sake (last time was 1200p).

    My results were very inconsistent before so I cooked my GPU with Furmark until the temp stabilized at 76C and the GPU clocks stabilized at 2037Mhz core, 5454Mhz memory (not too shabby for an Armor OC with the stock cooler).

    I then opened the benchmark (which, oddly, bumped the core clock up to 2050 ???) and set it to 1080, ultra, fullscreen, then alt-tabbed to Furmark and closed it, and immediately went back and clicked start benchmark. It was a lot more consistent this way.

    That was on the 3rd run.

    1st: 7256
    2nd: 7054 (dunno what happened there)
    4th: 7263

    So... yay? lol

    P.S. I'm running 1/2 the memory now too in single channel - RMA happening soon.

    Just checking in: Is there a version which doesn't require the installation of a wholly unrelated app in order to launch the app that launches the app? Or should I continue to ignore this?

    You can launch it without the launcher, but you need the launcher to download it.
