Dead Island Riptide is the sequel of the famous game Dead Island Deep Silver, and was released in Europe this Friday. The guys at GameGPU have had plenty of time (well, in America the game was released on the 24th) to be the first to perform a full game analysis and display performance data with no more and no less than 34 different graphics cards. Is your graphic enough to run Dead Island Riptide? Check out the graphs.
To start, let’s see what are the system requirements of this game. The minimum requirements speak of a dual core processor from Intel or AMD, 1 GB of RAM and a NVIDIA GeForce 8600 or AMD Radeon HD 2600 with 512MB of dedicated memory. As for the recommended requirements, ask an Intel Core 2 Duo 3Ghz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000 + with 4Gb of RAM and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 or AMD Radeon HD4870 with 1GB of dedicated memory.
At first some requirements are not too demanding for a game of this nature, but we’ll see what actual performance is achieved with 34 graphics cards out there on the market today.
The equipment used was an Intel Core i7-3970X to 4.9 Ghz with 16GB of 2400MHz RAM and an SSD OCZ Vertex 3 120Gb. As we see a very high end computer so that limits the operation of the game is the graphics card and other components. Drivers used in the benchmark of NVIDIA cards was the 320.00 driver that have been in recent BETA, and in the case of AMD the Catalyst 13.4 WHQL.
The following results:
They have also made a smaller comparative chart showing performance in Dead Island Riptide with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan and different processors.
As you can see, the game gives very little use over a single core, so a dual core processor is recommend for optimal performance.
