Far Cry 5 has received mixed reviews, with some loving the new addition to the series while others are less than amused by the AI's behaviour and story line which frequently interrupts your wandering and side quests. Regardless of how you feel about the content it is a pretty game and finding the right settings for your particular GPU can only enhance your gameplay. [H]ard|OCP took some time to run through the game with an RX Vega 64 as well as a GTX 1080 and 1080Ti at 1440p and 4k resolutions. They also compared the impact on performance using SMAA and TAA has on the NVIDIA cards at 1440p. Check out the full review, especially the strong showing by the AMD card.
"Far Cry 5 is finally in retail, and in this preview of video card performance we will compare performance of a few video cards, using real gameplay. This will give you an idea what you need to play Far Cry 5, what image quality settings are playable, and what resolutions work best with each video card. Our full evaluation will come later."
