    Nice review, pretty good read! Now, since you;ve done a horror themed game review, why not hop on to the next obvious game, Dead Space Remake?

    I enjoyed The Callisto Protocol for its stunning visuals, sound and superb atmosphere but the game is sadly marred by annoying melee combat and absolutely abysmal optimisation.

    My 20-core i5-13600KF CPU is hardly being used in this game and GPU usage is usually well below 100% as well yet the game constantly dips below 60 fps at 1440p on my RTX 3080 and has some awful stuttering too despite the game having been out for over a month with multiple patches since release. The developers just do not seem capable of (or maybe they just don't care about) optimising the game which is a shame because I think the potential was there for a spiritual successor to the Dead Space franchise.

    With RT the RTX 4090 GPU usage is low at 4k, i think if the game is better optimized a RTX 4090 getting 25-30% more fps.

    My demands for gameplay aren't that high. That's why I enjoyed Callisto very much despite some of the lesser aspects such as enemy variety and the kind of standard story. But lawd, does this game look good.
    Still it shouldn't have brought my 4090 to its knees at 1440P DXR on with regular sub 60fps moments. Looking at your graphs things have improved since I finished it.

    It will never be right. Just to many remnant code from gameworks lurking around in the background causing micro stutter. Game engine isnt fit for purpose for that reason. Needs a clean build without any black box code.

    Interesting read. AMD latest GPUs really are WQHD kings.

    Damn, I'm not used to scrolling this far down to see the result that interests me. I guess I will have to upgrade next cycle no matter what.

    It's a thankless job, but Intel volunteered for the bottom spot, so that neither Nvidia nor AMD needed to accept it.

    That Arch 770 result is impressively bad.
    The Radeons are doing very well at 1080p and even at 1440p.
    But NVidia still has the crown with RT and high resolutions, especially at 4K.

    No bueno. It's an EA title, every 2-3 graphics card swaps it'll lock me out of my account for 24 hours due to DRM.

    woaw it's horrible when I think I complain about 1 blip every 5s or fh5 that has nice smooth gameplay but still has a lot of up and downs which I don't like I want a flat line ;)
    63fps on a 4090 ? we don't have the same standards the last game that had horrible fps I exited and uninstalled too bad about my 40€ but I'm not playing console fps

    This seems to happen all too often with Unreal Engine 5. Its due to shader compilation on the fly.

    AMD cards are doing well with raytracing turned on. I didnt expect 6800xt to beat 3070ti so easily.

    And with the HZB tweak, it would probably match the 3080Ti at 1400p

    That's a 14 core CPU.
    20 threads, not cores.

    Yeah the game is incredible looking but I feel like its pointless as a benchmark because of how crap the CPU/GPU utilization is. Especially with RT on. GPU sits at like 60% usage and it's using like 2-4 cores and they aren't even maxed out.. it's like what exactly is happening lol.. what's the bottleneck? It's obvious it's the CPU but it doesn't show it.

    And only 6 performance cores and 8 crap cores. :D
