Godfall System Requirements List 12 GB VRAM for 4K and Ultra HD Textures

Godfall, the RPG looter-slasher that's being developed by Counterplay Games in close collaboration with AMD, will require 12 GB VRAM for maxed-out settings at 4K resolution. As part of AMD's partner videos the company announced when it revealed the RX 6000 series of graphics cards, Godfall is being built with DirectX 12 Ultimate and DXR in mind, and takes advantage of a number of rendering technologies that are part of the DXR 1.1 feature-set, alongside AMD's Fidelity FX technologies. Counterplay Games will make a 4X x 4X Ultra HD texture pack available for maxed-out settings - well within the 16 GB of VRAM AMD has settled on for its RX 6900 XT, RX 6800 XT, and RX 6800 graphics cards.

Godfall features Variable Rate Shading (VRS) for increased performance with no discernible loss of visual quality, as well as raytraced shadows (platform agnostic) and makes use of AMD's Fidelity FX Contrast Adaptive Sharpening. This technology has shown great results in improving both performance (it has been benchmarked as offering performance levels similar to that of DLSS 2.0 in Death Stranding, for instance, compared to a full 4K render) and image quality.

Highly debatable.

So they made the game and don't know its requirements. ok 'shrug'

good to know that another "no-one give a rat ass" game is being developed with AMD hardware.
AoTS ? Strange Bridgade ? who even play these games anyways. These games should be labeled as synthetic benchmarks.

OTOH I guess this validates my suspicion that 12 GB will be enough for next gen, especially since I'm at 1440p. Perhaps I can wait until 6700 series comes out now.

This only validates AMD Partners are trolling Nvidia.

Dude you are hopeless. I play these games and Strange Brigade is a very nice game.
The GodFall games looks really nice and I'd like to try it first before I say crap like you did.

I think you're missing the sarcasm and link to the subject of the 3080 only having 10GB. Long topics on TPU exist with us discussing whether that would or wouldn't be sufficient.

The first proof its not, is now in. And the consoles haven't even released proper.

Nice games or not nobody play them, just look at steam player count.
Do you care when Nvidia release Quake 2 RTX, Minecraft RTX ? yeah these tech demo games are worthless for comparison.

BTW.
Isnt 4 x 4K simply 8K? They could have called it an 8K texture pack.

RIP the entire GPU industry...

In fact, RIP computers as we know them. Hi, I'm a typical hardware news commenter and i like to dig dogturds out of public sandboxes.

I don't care about your meaningless statistics. Nobody plays it? I play it and if you offend me one more time I'm gonna report you so you better keep your mouth shut. I'm not a nobody.
When NV released Q2 RTX or any other RTX game it was a game showing new features not a benchmark because you can actually enjoy the game-play. They are not worthless and people do play these. Show some respect to others. Try playing 3DMark or Unigine heaven for a change.

oh wow somehow talk about a game is offending to you, sorry about that.

Would be pretty funny when an indie developer get paid by AMD to tune an UE4 game to the point of trashing Nvidia GPU, Hairwork reverso ?

No, 8K textures are 8192x8192. 4K just means ~4K pixels horizontally. But screens are typically 16:9 and textures are 1:1.

You are a lost cause dude but hey three times the charm. You don't even know what you did wrong do you?
Your arguments (you can't even call it that way) are just childish. Conversation with you has absolutely no merit.

I'd say nice bait, but no, it isn't. In fact it's pretty crap.

Next time, maybe ?

Rip 10gb 3080 owners
I'm pretty sure 3080 will run this just fine. AMD probably mandated the dev throws in some humongous textures because... well, we all know why.

So that's why AMD mentioned this one during their presentation.

I see what you did there.

I wouldn't call a game's recommend requirements proof of anything. As with anything, I'd wait and see someone benchmarking something less than 12GB to see if that requirement really is valid. And remember, 12GB allocated doesn't mean 12GB used. If the perf difference between, say, 6800XT with its 16GBs and the 3080 with its 10GB is negligeble, well, then we're back to discussing again.
As for what it's worth, game's recommend requirements have been bogus for years and almost never are accurate. This being an AMD sponsored partner title, I'm not surprised AMD is pushing the 'more RAM is better, unlike NVIDIA!' thing. Strange, that one of the prominent AMD partner titles also supposedly benefits from the one thing AMD is way ahead of Nvidia in. We'll just have to wait for benchmarks to see if it truly is 'RIP NVIDIA' or just marketing. I'm personally leaning towards the latter.

You need to calm down, dude. They never called you out for anything and only stated facts. No need to get offended. Ashes and Strange Brigade are games that literally nobody plays. You're one of the maybe 10 per week that launches Strange brigade. It's only usefulness is for showcasing Vulkan performance scaling. You're allowed to play and like the game, but you don't have to take personal offence when somebody rightfully calls out the games for being what is effectively benchmarks. And yes, that swings the other way 'round to Q2RTX and Minecraft RTX.

I don't think you know what "literally [nobody]" means.
