Far Cry 5 is available right now on Steam as well as Ubisoft’s own Uplay storefront. We checked out this exciting series for you. It is important to mention that this series has both excited users with amazing concepts like Far Cry Primal and also disappointed them with some of Ubisoft’s terrible woes.
For example, Far Cry seemed to crash right at the moment when you least needed it. This seemed like a disaster and Ubisoft promises to deliver a better PC experience to gamers. While Ubisoft is in a new mood, it promised support for video cards like GeForce GTX 670. However, to enjoy the best this game has to offer, gamers will also need 8GB of RAM and i5 processor.

A Few Tweaks Worth Remembering
Similar to Assasin’s Creed Origins, Far Cry 5 offers a host of options for tweaking the graphic experience to suit your variations. These include video quality settings to change vegetation, fog, and shadows like the usual. Moreover, you will also receive for HDR displays. Furthermore, a Field of View goes all the way up to 120 and starts at 70 default. These settings are developing as open-world games become to take the fancy of gamers unlike ever before. However, Far Cry 5 does not offer dynamic resolution which helps maximize the frame rate.
The welcome change in Far Cry 5 is the resolution multiplier. This takes the gameplay to 4K despite not having a monitor or screen to display the details. What it does is basically, it enables faster rendering of the game and scales down screen resolution. This feature has long been an important part of Xbox One X and PS4 Pro. But, the feature in Far Cry 5 offers many more options like more granular control, customization, and increased resolution. Furthermore, there is also an option to select benchmarks of maximum, average, and minimum frame rates.
Far Cry 5 and 4K
We used AMD Ryzen R7 1800X processor with a 16 GB RAM, 3.6 GHz, and an Asus 4K display. We got an average of 40 to 41 fps in most cases, and the fps reached 35 fps. When we maxed out all the stats on a 1440p, we received 66-70 fps in most cases. Additionally, there was a spike in fps in minor cases. However, 1080p saw the fps dropped to 55-60. However, it reached 100 fps with an average of 73 fps.
The ideal experience for this game seemed to be on 1440p despite the additional 4K quality. The 1440p seemed to be a far more responsive and smoother experience. This setting is also the highest on PS4 PRO and Xbox One X. Now, Ubisoft has announced AMD as the hardware partner, this may mean Nvidia and Intel followers may get the short end of the stick.
