At launch, the game had major stuttering issues, and was mostly single-threaded. Thankfully, though, Crytek decided to improve the game’s performance via some post-launch updates.
And now, one and a half years after its launch, we can finally enjoy the game at high framerates.
Main PC system consists of an Intel i9 9900K with 16GB of DDR4 at 3800Mhz, a Samsung 970 Pro SSD 1TB M.2 NVMe, NVIDIA GeForce RTX3080 and Windows 10 64-bit.
In November 2020, Crytek released a patch that offered a 43.75% performance boost in CPU-heavy areas. And with the game’s latest update, we are witnessing an 81% performance increase over its launch version.
Here is the same CPU-heavy scene, using the exact same settings (1080p/Very High). Pay also attention to the CPU utilization (the game uses heavily four CPU cores now).
2020 = 48 FPS
2022 = 88 FPS
