Benchmark scores in other reviews are only comparable when this exact same configuration is used.

We used the latest public release version of the game (not a press pre-release). We also used the latest game-ready drivers from both AMD and NVIDIA. Our test scene uses actual gameplay (not the benchmark).

Graphics Memory Usage

Using a GTX 1080 Ti, which has 11 GB of VRAM, we tested the game's memory usage at Ultra settings.

Our results show that Far Cry 5 doesn't use a lot of VRAM by today's standards. Peaking at 4 GB usage in 4K means that nearly every recent graphics card will be able to handle the highest settings (VRAM-wise). Even cards with smaller memory sizes, like 2 GB or 3 GB, should be doing fine as they won't be used to play at 4K resolution anyway.

GPU Performance

CPU Scaling

We also tested the game with various core counts and HyperThreading on/off using a GTX 1080 Ti. The 720p results serve as an indicator of the CPU bottleneck—faster graphics hardware, no matter the resolution, can not give you more FPS than the results at 720p.

Far Cry 5 runs extremely well on even slower processors. It's also worth mentioning that reaching 144 FPS is possible with most processors.
