Starfield is absolutely gorgeous and, yeah, a real humbling experience for our hardware.
My 3080 gaming laptop clocked out last week and is being repaired under warranty, so I'm back on my GT76 Titan I bought 4 years ago.
But it has a 9900k and a 210 watt 2080, so I can maintain a 30 fps frame rate with Ultra and only shadows lowered so I have locked it at that.
And like Steve found, FSR2 is pretty much worthless, so I'm going to try the DLSS mod today.
But it has already proved itself to me as a great game and a blast to play.
all major sites test on 7800x3d or 13900k, and still see piss poor performance. 6800 can't get 60fps at 1440p medium in Akila lolThis FSR implementation confuses me. All the others used various presets, meanwhile this one is just a render scale slider. I think this games issues aren't GPU related. I think it's just like all other Bethesda games. I think it's poorly optimized for CPU usage. Then again I've seen people talk about their CPU usage being maxed and some saying their CPU usage was low. Reminds me of the FO4 days.
There are over 6K Very Positive reviews on Steam so your theory does not seem to be holding true.yup.
but that's just theoretical performance, 30 series does better with dx12, so wouldn't be surprised to see 1080Ti around 2060 12g
yeah, 2060 super actually
anyway, grab some popcorn and get ready for the users to rip this game to shreds in 6 hours time
Starfield is the first new universe in over 25 years from Bethesda Game Studios, the creators of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4. In this next generation role-playing game set amongst the stars, create any character you want and explore with unparalleled freedom as you embark on an...www.metacritic.com
so far 47 positive and 4 mixed, why do I feel user score will be overwhelmingly negative.....
Don't think I've seen such poor performance from the 1080Ti ever (I may even pass on purchasing this game until I've upgraded - so may be some time yet). Bethesda's loss as this would normally be an easy sell (just completed Outer Worlds Spacer's edition so looking for my next game). Looks like I'll just hold out for the Cyber Punk DLC (which plays fine at 1440p on a 1080Ti).
and 2.5K negative ones. Read the positive ones too, most of them acknowledge the game is a mess. On some forums it only gets 4.7/100 from user reviews, with 8.5-10 critic score.There are over 6K Very Positive reviews on Steam so your theory does not seem to be holding true.
The following is a recording of CPU utilization during a run around of Atlantis (main city hub). Graphics settings were 4K, Ultra, no FSR or resolution scaling; system used Core i7-9700K, 32GB DDR4-3200, GeForce RTX 4070 Ti.I think this games issues aren't GPU related.

at least we know where that sponsorship money went.
You base this conclusion off of one game....? Seems like an odd thing to do. Most recent games coming out, cards in that 6700XT range have been more than enough for 1080p gaming.It just goes to show the importance of having a high-end GPU, even for gaming at 1080p. For a while now, the consensus among tech sites and Youtube channels has been "For 1080p gaming, you only need a $300 card like the 6700 XT. Anything above that is just overkill and unnecessary."
Glad I didn't listen to that advice and got a 4080 instead.
