System Specifications To Test Game

In the name of the Testing rig, I have an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 with a 3.6GHz of clock speed. The Memory I like to use is 8gigs of 4 RAM Sticks from XPG. The Graphics Card in use is an NVIDIA GTX 1660 6GB. The Storage I use is an SSD with M.2 Type having 500GB of space. I tend to use Windows 10 64Bit for all my game testing unless I feel to need to switch to older gen systems to help out other players.

I also have a RIG which contains an i3 8100 and a GTX 1050TI with a total of 16GB of RAM. The reason I did not test out New World for this rig is that the game is too much for these specs to handle. If you request me exclusively to test that out and let you know, do mention that in the comments below. I might give it a go after that.

Here is an illustrative video showing the results and how it runs:


Terrain Details Comparison [Medium vs Low Settings]

This is something new that I tried for this game. I saw that the Terrain Details make a significant part of the game. So, I decided to compare the Terrain details for Medium and Low Settings. Here are the results that I Found Out:

new world medium vs low settings

As you can see from the above images, there is a tiny amount of difference between The Medium and Low Terrain Details Settings. I tried the settings at dynamic environment also where the vegetation moves due to wind. Even then the visual difference is in a small amount. If I talk about Framerates, I was getting a decent boost of about 4FPS as compared to the medium settings. The exact count will be 88FPS vs 92FPS. Hence I decided that the Low settings were the way to go for this one. The rest of the settings are already shown in the video and the above subheading.


Results and Tips after Graphics Test

I was getting a steady 90-94 FPS when the environment was less “noisy”. By noise I mean the number of elements I could see on screen. When that was going up, the FPS dropped to the lowest of 74-76FPS. Other than that, I faced no issues and the game ran smoothly for most parts. I would not recommend that you try this game on a 1050TI and an i3 8th or older version. Sticking to the recommended specs will help you the most.

If you are struggling with FPS. Lower the Texture details to Low also, and turn on Vsync if you are facing screen tearing. for PvP, I will recommend that you put the settings too low just to be safe. The game is causing some issues with the system. In that case, make sure everything is up-to-date including The BIOS of your system.
