After a long time waiting, we finally have the iconic Marvel superhero web slinging its way to the PC platform. The latest PlayStation PC port is one of the most anticipated games of the year, but how well does it actually perform? And what hardware is needed to play at its best?

First of all, in this PC performance benchmark article for Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered we benchmark a range of graphics cards going from the higher-end RTX 3080, which is the recommended GPU for Ultimate Ray Tracing specs; to the mid-range GTX 1060, which is the official recommended GPU; as well as the R9 380 to see whether Spiderman PC can run on low-end hardware.

Then we go through the FPS test results of each graphics card running at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions at each graphics setting preset. From there we can see the performance of the minimum and recommended system requirement graphics cards and consider how well optimized Spiderman Remastered really is. All other graphics options were left at their default value.

Unfortunately, Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered does not include an in-game FPS benchmarking tool. So in order to standardize the results below we chose a specific area for Spidey to swing through, gliding beside buildings and eventually beating up some bad guys. Since most of your time will be spent swinging through the city, we found this to be pretty representative of your overall gameplay experience in Spiderman PC.

With that in mind, let's jump into the PC performance benchmarks for Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered...

Conclusion

Overall, looking at the benchmark results above we can see that Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is not too demanding even on lower-end hardware, and can comofrtably reach playable frame rates at various resolutions and graphics settings, though does not have a whole amount of range between presets unfortunately.

For instance, the RTX 3080 performs really well in Spiderman Remastered, delivering around 80fps or above at all graphics settings across all resolutions. However, the frame rate barely changes between resolutions, let alone the various graphics presets. This signals a possible bottleneck or optimization issues (or possibly even CPU-related as others have pointed out).

Next, the GTX 1060 also performs pretty well, delivering a mostly 60fps experience at 1080p resolutions across all presets, and a 40-50fps experience at 1440p. Unfortunately though, this drops below 30fps even on Very Low settings at 4K, which was close to unplayable in our opinion and is not recommended.

Then the R9 380 surprisingly performs quite well on Very Low settings, delivering around 30fps on average. Unfortunately this is about where it stops, as any preset above dropped below 30fps and was unplayable to us, so it is best to keep Spiderman Remastered on Very Low graphics settings at 1080p resolution when using a GPU like this.

In order to increase FPS further in Marvels Spiderman Remastered though, there are several different ways. First of all, a lot of graphics settings (including Anti-Aliasing) are not affected by the presets, so it is worth disabling all other settings to maximize your frame rate.

Additionally, Spiderman PC includes official support for Nvidia DLSS and AMD FSR, as well as Insomniac's own upscaling tech known as IGTI. These will significantly improve FPS if needed and your hardware supports it, especially if enabling ray tracing (which was disabled for these tests).

As always, we welcome any and all feedback from you guys as well with your experience of hardware configurations and FPS performance/quality settings. That way we can all better gauge how well our systems will be able to run Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered.

I am making $92 an hour working from home. i was greatly surprised at the same time as my neighbour advised me she changed into averaging $ninety five however I see the way it works now. I experience mass freedom now that I’m my non-public boss.

In English:


My son plays it on an i7 3770 and a GTX 670 on a 5400RPM HDD. Going well. However, "only" at 720p and 30FPS at the lowest settings. But whatever? 11 year old hardware. I'd say Sony ported it quite well

Mein Sohn spielt es auf einem i7 3770 und einer GTX 670 auf einer 5400RPM HDD. Läuft gut. Allerdinsg "nur" bei 720p und 30FPS bei niedrigstens Settings. Aber was solls? 11 Jahre alte Hardware. Würde sagen Sony hat das eigentlich ganz gut portiert

Still waiting on the optimization guide that GD usually does. I mean individual graphics setting impact. Also admin please remove the scammers posts.

Runs pretty nice on my machine for 1080p. Didn't actually benchmark it and it definitely isn't high refresh, but still very decent. Though I did manage to get traversal fast enough to actually get low quality distant building pretty close, that followed by freeze and game catching up on loading. Though so far, it happened only once. Feels like it is giving whole data streaming off SSD thing run for its money.

The engine has been demonstrated to be very storage heavy, where you couldn't swing faster on a PS4 because the HDD couldn't keep up (there was some PS5 demo). That could be one explanation for the abnormally high CPU usage (CPU crunching SSD data). Something worthy of a deeper dive (something I'm sure digital foundry will tackle)

I'm running it at 4K at very high settings without raytracing and with FSR enabled on an RX 6900 XT and I can confirm that even on a Radeon card, the benchmarks are pretty much about right.

a very CPU-dependent game. obviously, GPUs will dictate the final capability of the display. you can see that in the 3080 tests.

Dude God of War is better optimized than Days Gone


Spider-Man is even better. Sony improved performance for every game time to time, I bet Spiderman Miles Morales will have even better performance


Your specs are better than mine, If I can run it on High without FPS drop then you easily run this on Ultra

why do you consider optimization to just be a metric of what FPS you get at certain quality setting?


For me, it's more about how well game runs in relation to how well it looks.


Like for example, one game might run "very well" at ultra settings but still look worse than another game running at low settings.

Best Optimized is definitely Days Gone


followed by God Of War


I need to play Spider-Man to know how good it runs on my i7 but the first 2 never dipped below 40 frames on High settings
