Yeehaw, Far Cry 5 is with us. This deliciously twisted tale of religious cults, righteous killing and pet bears is as deliriously off-kilter as we've all come to expect from the Far Cry series. But how does Far Cry 5 run on PC? To start things off we've put to the test with a GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards.

Far Cry 5 benchmarks and frames per second analysis performed on MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G | Intel i7-5820K | 16GB DDR4

For our benchmarks, we tested out how Far Cry 5 performed while using MSI's GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G, equipped with 6GB video memory. It’s backed up by 16GB DDR4 memory and an Intel Core i7-5820K CPU. This system is fairly similar to the recommended specs, slightly exceeding both the recommended CPU and GPU, so we're expecting it to run pretty well.

These benchmarks were conducted during gameplay, not using the in-game benchmark tool.

  1080p 1440p 4K
Low 84 60 30
Medium 80 55 28
High 72 49 25
Ultra 62 47 24

Absolutely solid yet unremarkable, would be my summation of Far Cry 5's performance. From memory, I believe this looks a fair bit nicer than Far Cry 4, particularly the interiors and lighting, and it does make for a game that's more demanding. However, the GTX 1060 6GB is still capable of hitting 60 frames per second average at Ultra / 1080p in FC5. There are occasional dips, the lowest dipping down to the equivalent of 2fps very briefly, resulting in a major stutter, but for the most part, it holds firm and provides a very playable frame rate in Far Cry 5.

The performance hit when playing at 1440p resolution isn't actually huge, and if you've got a high-resolution monitor then it may be worth considering this option. Performance dips are more pronounced though, so 1440p players would be recommended to dip down to a mixture of Medium & High if using a GTX 1060 to play FarCry 5.

As for 4K - don't bother. The averages look okay but it's nowhere near playable. Aiming is nearly impossible and performance is all over the place during action scenes.

Far Cry 5 Frame Times

And now, time for the first rollout of a new feature designed to shine a little more light on frame times. As we discussed a little a few weeks ago, many find that frames per second results don't necessarily provide the data they're after. A game may run at 60 frames per second on average, for example, but occasionally dip down to single-digits. By looking at the frame times, we can identify whether a game is guilty of stuttering.

In the charts below, each gradient from left to right represents a different frame time, ranging from 66.65ms, equivalent to less than 15 frames per second. The better the performance, the greener the bar should be. A primarily orange or red bar indicates lower frame rates.

Far Cry 5 Frame Time Spread @ 1080p/Ultra

 

Far Cry 5 Frame Time Spread @ 1440p/Ultra

Far Cry 5 Frame Time Spread @ 4K/Ultra

On 1080p in Far Cry 5, we see the largest spread of frame times, ranging from 90fps all the way down to a few serious drops to 30 and sometimes even 15 frames per second. However, the largely green bar tells us that the performance is, on the whole, pretty solid. You've just got to watch out for that red slither of poor performance which can cause Far Cry 5 to stutter during action scenes.

Curiously, 1440p returns fewer poor frames. In this benchmark, not a single frame is rendered over 33.33ms, equivalent to 30 frames per second. This is fantastic, and it's why we see the yellow and orange absolute dominate the performance chart.

It's a different story for 4K, however. The bar is almost red, indicating that Far Cry 5's frame rate goes above 30 fps. At this level, Far Cry 5 is pretty much unplayable.

How Well Optimised is Far Cry 5

Far Cry 5 CPU Core Usage and Multithreading Performance

Far Cry 5 CPU Usage during 1080p / Ultra Benchmark with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060

Far Cry 5 GPU Usage during 1080p / Ultra Benchmark with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060

As you can see, Far Cry 5 appears to be well-optimized for modern systems. On 1080p / Ultra the CPU is pretty much sat in third gear; Far Cry 5 barely ever breaking beyond 50% usage on any of the cores/threads. Compare and contrast with Assassin's Creed Origins, another Ubisoft game, that typically sits at around 80-90% CPU usage on the Core i7-5820K. It's very good PC performance from Far Cry 5, and indicates that it isn't overly taxing on CPUs.

Meanwhile, the GPU is sitting close to 100% load at all times. This should hopefully mean the GTX 1060 graphics card is being fully utilized by Far Cry 5. The overall result means Far Cry 5 runs with a mostly solid performance at 1080p / Ultra, bar one or two stutters.

Far Cry 5 frames per second benchmark performed on Radeon RX Vega 64 | Ryzen 7 1700X 3.8GHz | 16GB DDR4

Resident GD'er Bluej511 has also been putting Far Cry 5 through its paces with the Radeon RX Vega 64, paired up with an AMD Ryzen 1700X overclocked to 3.8GHz and 16GB DDR memory. He's playing at the fairly unusual ultrawide (21:9) resolution of 2560 x 1080, meaning the RX Vega 64 has to pump out 33% more pixels than at standard 1920x1080p resolution.

These benchmarks were conducted during gameplay, not using the in-game benchmark tool.

 

Some brand new AMD drivers have arrived just in time for Far Cry 5's launch, and these results were taken after installing the driver. The average frame rate jumped from 75 to 85 frames per second. The frame rate varies from a low of 68 up to 110fps, depending on the amount of action on-screen. Areas with a lot of foliage tend to be the most demanding, although the Radeon Adrenalin 18.3.4 GPU driver appears to have provided a decent performance bump.

One neat feature in Far Cry 5 is the in-game tool for capping the frame rate. Bluej511 was able to cap his frame rate at 73fps for locked performance on a 75Hz AMD FreeSync monitor. As with any FreeSync or G-Sync display, it's beneficial to cap your framerate a few frames below the refresh rate of your monitor, reducing any potential input lag.

CPU usage of the 8-core Ryzen 7 1700X was typically wavering around 50% with peaks up into the 80's Bluej's noted that running all cores at 100% does seem to provide a little help to the performance, even if Far Cry 5 wouldn't otherwise be maxing them out.

So I have a question, does anyone know what would cause the occasional stuttering that drops from 60 to about 56 give or take? It's not game-breaking, but whenever it does dip it's pretty noticeable. Does anyone else have this issue?

Look at the top right corner when it dips, if you see 3-4 little dots it's because the game is saving. I've noticed that as well using my HDD, Jon using his SSD hasn't noticed the issue.

So apparently Ryzen does not do so well in Far Cry 5 lol. A few reviewers with vega 64 seem to be getting around 100-110 avg at 1080p, i average around 84fps in ultrawide so probably around 90fps or so in 1080p. An 8700k would boost up the fps even at 1080p.

Yea its AMD optimized, i average around 80-90 most of the time, drops to around 70 sometimes but it's not bad, im also in ultrawide which as Jon stated is 33% more pixels then 16:9. I'm happy with it though, i play with it capped at 73fps i get no tearing and even when the fps drops it's smooth as silk. Not seeing 99% gpu usage but thats because its quite a powerful card but if i run 2.0 resolution scale i get 40fps and 99% usage lol.

You'll be able to play it with 60fps average at least with that CPU with some very rare drops below 60fps into the 50s, if you ask me. The game is really well optimized(in comparison to other games) for what it is, demanding, but optimized(ish).

Could try it.. But im not that sure, but looking at how awesome it performs for me at 1080p, you could definitely try it out at very low or something like that.
And looking at the comparisons between low and ultra, its not that big of a difference, but... Im not 100% sure if you can run it with the 950m card, but i think it should be playable especially if you turn to 720p or below :)

It can actually, high usage is the first sign of a bottleneck which results in FPS loss. That's a mid-range GPU coupled with a high-end processor and in CPU intensive games like Far Cry 5 due to being open world, performance will suffer. The GPU is the weak link here rendering a CPU intensive game resulting in the high usage.

Usage is a bad indication of, if the game is well optimized for multi-core CPUs, usage for all you know can be stalls/empty cycles, awaits or anything else... that's usage too and it's useless usage, just taking CPU resources.

Yes but if your GPU or CPU usage is high that means the other is a weak link resulting in a bottleneck which only means loss of fps which ranges from negligible to severe depending on how weak the other hardware is. If the gpu usage is 100% it immediately means the cpu is the weak link, the other way around is also true.


Fixes for this: Lowering in-game settings (only to raise the FPS, it doesn't remove the bottleneck so it's a temporary fix) or buying stronger hardware (a more permanent fix).


I've been gaming on PCs long enough to know what I am talking about.

@NeoGamerX
There is always a bottleneck in a system, usually, the GPU is the bottleneck... if it's NOT the GPU then it's usually the CPU and if it's neither, it's the RAM, but usually your HDD/SSD never fully utilized, neither does your PSU, so yeah, always a bottleneck if NOT multiple... why do you care when the CPU is bottlenecking and NOT when the GPU is when the result is the same...


The overall performance matters.


And again my point is that simple usage does NOT tell you how well the game is optimized for multi-core/thread CPUs... I thought I was clear on that...

This isn't about optimization, I thought made that clear. I was simply pointing out the reason why the usage is so high. This is because the GPU is the bottleneck so in CPU dependent games, it will cause CPU usage to be high.


While what you say may or may not be true, when it comes to performance, the GPU, CPU, and RAM are really the only things that matter when it comes to performance of the game. Internal Storage medium only matters in terms of load times. It has no effect on performance otherwise.

I will tell you what, on my rig in ultra and in ultrawide 2560x1080 I'm averaging around 70-80fps or so in heavy vegetation, the benchmark is quite close to ingame fps so it's not bad. This is on the ultra preset so fxaa is on as well i haven't tweaked a thing. Game runs REAL smooth does have a bit of lag when it autosaves (as per usual in a far cry game) but id love to see what this does compared to a 1080. This is on AMDs newest driver which seems to have helped out a bit.

Thundertemplar, the game was actually MADE for Vega rapidpacked math so it is made with AMD. It runs fantastic on ultra with motion blur off, it's absolutely smooth sailing, no jitter, no stutter, only lags when it auto-saves but all far crys do that. Drops down to about 60fps in really heavy areas but its mostly around 80-90fps, i cap it at 73 for freesync and i have zero issues staying at that rate. I'd like to see more gpu usage so not sure what's going on there.

Anything that taxes a cpu when a game is already cpu heavy will cause issues, period. Now it runs fine on my rig but i thought it would do way better then 70-80 average. Indoors i do get like 130fps but that's beside the point, in heavy vegetation where the game starts off i do get around 80fps average, i have yet to play in a town to see what that's like but i don't expect it to get much higher. I do play capped at 73fps for freesync but have been trying this uncapped for benchmarks.

Oh yea agreed on that point, but like i said, there is SO many combinations of PCs, motherboard (believe it or not that can affect performance more so then people think) CPUs, GPUs, registry, power profiles, etc etc all of that can cause issues. It's no surprise though that Denuvo and any anti-cheat/anti-pirating software can/will cause issues. Case and point? Auto-saving in this game on my HDD causes massive lag/stutter and my HDD does 220MB/s

I looked up info on motherboards, they only really only affect performance if the PCI-E version doesn't match. As an example, using a PCI-E 3.0 card on a PCI-E 2.0 slot can affect performance but the loss is negligible. But other than that, no.


As for auto-saving causing lag, the next time you run the game, run a hardware monitoring tool to see what happens to your CPU or GPU when it auto-saves. Might be a bug, I would recommend getting in touch with Ubisoft support.


Though the problem is not the DRM itself but the configuration of it or the configuration of the game itself.

Jon has no issues with his and hes running an SSD, and as far as motherboards i didn't mean the actually pci 2.0/3.0 but the fact that some motherboards score higher on fire strike with identical setups then others, it's pretty much the brain of the entire PC. If it's build poorly and has excess resistance it's a possibility that it will perform lower then others. Some people won't agree but i already know it's a fact so no worries. Anything that will run in the background can cause issues.

What you are saying might be true and if it is, the performance impact is probably minimal compared to CPU, GPU, and RAM combination. One thing I forgot to mention is that Motherboard (and PSU as well, obviously) choice also impacts ability to overclock which is something I don't do so I am not bothered.


There are other things I did not bring up but I don't see the need to. Again, performance impact from motherboard choice is minimal compared to the 3 most important components so I'm, again, not bothered.


That said, I see ZERO proof that Denuvo has any real impact on performance.

My 1700x gets about 30-40% cpu usage while in game, it's not as demanding as origins is on the cpu. I will play it in a bit and reset my hwinfo64 and see what the actual average is on the cpu and all cores.

would an i5-6600k with a 1070 and 16 gb RAM fare well?

At 1080p and 1440p ultra for sure, 4k you'd need to lower the settings to get 60fps+

Are you sure?
I keep hearing conflicting things from different people.
You tell me I'm good for 60 fps ultra/high
Others tell me I'll get medium at best.

GTX 1060 can hit 60+ so why wouldn't a GTX 1070?

I'm not concerned with my Graphics card, I'm worried about the CPU.

You have 5% higher IPC than the i7 5820k and a little higher clock speeds, so your CPU will be fine, it will just run at a higher usage around 75-85%, don't worry.

I'm going to assume your resolution is at least 1080p. If so then based on what the article above says you should be fine at Ultra settings. You might even get away with 1440p. My concern however would be areas of the game where where is intense action so it's quite possible FPS could suffer at those points.


(The word here is possible, doesn't mean it will and it doesn't mean it won't.)


But yeah you should be able to get away with ultra 60fps at 1080p or even 1440p. If the framerate drops to an uncomfortable or less than desired level try dropping the settings to high.

I strongly suggest looking at and lowering any unneeded settings. Stuff like Motion Blur and Bloom are just some of the first things I would personally turn off right away.


It is worth investigating to eliminate any unnecessary FPS loss from pointless graphics settings.

Nah it's DX11 only I believe, although the Steam page says DX9 which must be a mistake.
