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

We tested the press review version of Resident Evil Village. Both AMD and NVIDIA have released game-ready drivers for the game, which we used.

Graphics Memory Usage

Using a GeForce RTX 3090, which has 24 GB of VRAM, we measured the game's memory usage at the highest setting.

At the highest settings, the VRAM requirements are definitely noteworthy, but you're rewarded with excellent textures. Even at 1080p, we measured almost 6 GB. For 1440p and above, memory requirements should be no problem because all cards that can drive these resolutions have sufficient VRAM.

Once you turn on raytracing, memory usage is increased by roughly 1 GB. Not nothing, it still won't have a significant effect because cards today have plenty of VRAM.

FPS Analysis

In this section, we're comparing each card's performance to the average FPS measured in our graphics card reviews, which is based on a mix of 22 games and should provide a realistic average covering a wide range of APIs, engines, and genres.
