We have run some numbers on Rainbow Six Siege beta, by Ubisoft. Siege beta codes were flying around the net last week and so we arranged to run some benchmarks on a slightly ageing PC to help us all know how it will feel.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege focuses on asymmetrical multiplayer, with two teams of five going head to head in six 3-minute matches, with a variety of objectives. Rainbow 6 Siege releases across all regions and platforms on 1st December. Right lets take a look at the benchmarks.

The system we tested and benchmarked R6 Siege with was an Intel Core i5-4690K, Radeon HD 7850 XFX Ultra OC Edition with 8GB system Memory. Screen resolution was set at 1920x1080

First we will show you the graphics setting used to run the benchmark then below that are the Siege benchmark results of in-game benchmarks. They are arranged in ascending order: From Low settings and results to Max settings and results.

The great thing is that Rainbow 6 Siege provides lots of graphics settings for us to tweak around with, helping us fine tune an experience that best works with our own PC hardware. From anti-aliasing to supersample anti-aliasing, depth of field and texture quality etc, all options that you may need except for V-sync, which you may miss here.

Moving on to hardware comparison, this benchmark as mentioned, was conducted on i5-4690K+HD 7850+8 GB RAM. Comparing these to the recommended requirements you will see that the PC only lacks noticeably in the GPU area, compared to HD 7970 [Typo edited] however, it still manages to hold it's own considering its still achieving an average of around 40FPS in Ultra settings. Which means you don't have to worry about the GPU requirements that much.

Rainbow Six Siege releases on 1st December. Check out whether your system hold's up against this game's requirements and be sure to thumb up the awesome Yiannis for providing us with this benchmark report. Thats the sort of community interaction that separates GD from other games sites. We get together around tech and gaming and share our knowledge with one another. Excellent! Thanks Yiannis.
