We tested the public Steam release version of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (not a press pre-release). We also installed the latest drivers from AMD and NVIDIA, which both have game-ready support for the game.
Graphics Memory Usage
Using a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which has 11 GB of VRAM, we measured the game's memory usage at the highest setting.
VRAM usage is laughable for today's hardware. It seems the textures haven't been improved significantly over the console version. However, they do look good, as you can see in our screenshots.
FPS AnalysisIn this new section, we're comparing each card's performance against the average FPS measured in our graphics card reviews, which is based on a mix of 22 games. That should provide a realistic average, covering a wide range of APIs, engines, and genres.
Performance on NVIDIA is very similar across the board, Turing cards do see slightly better benefits, which is probably due to their architectural improvements. On the AMD side, things are slightly worse, but not by a lot. Surprisingly, Polaris (RX 590) does better here than Vega or the brand-new RDNA architecture.
