One of the best pieces of stress relief software* just got a major update, and TechSpot has discovered it may actually cause more stress than it relieves. The focus of their article is on performance but before offering a hint at what to expect it is worth noting they found Just Cause 4 to be a downgrade from the previous release, with many of the graphics being similar or lower quality than the previous game and at a much higher performance cost.
If you have anything below a GTX 1080 or Vega 64 you will struggle to maintain 60fps on very high quality at 1080p and you might be able to scrape by at 1440p with a GTX 1080 or Vega 64 but smooth 4K is beyond even an RTX 2080. Since the game itself, apart from some of the detailed scenery, doesn't seem that much different from the previous title it will be interesting to see if the reported performance issues lessen over time.
*There is a game included as well.
"Today we’re benchmarking Just Cause 4 with a boatload of different GPUs to help you determine if your graphics card will handle this brand new title, and if need be, work out a suitable upgrade option."
