Apex Legends: PC Performance Benchmarks for Graphics Cards and Processors

BASIC INFORMATION ON THE GAME

R5 Apex 2019 02 05 17 18 47 242

Release Date : February 4, 2019
Genre: Action, RPG
Developer : Respawn Entertainment
Publisher : Electronic Arts

Apex Legends is a battle royale through the unique "prism" of the Respawn studio. Players will have eight Legends to choose from - colorful heroes with unique abilities and playstyles. The last surviving team of three Legends wins and takes all the glory for themselves. Among the Legends there are such extraordinary personalities as, for example, Bloodhound - a hunter who can track the recent activity of enemies on the map.

THE GRAFICAL PART

In this subsection of our review, the main graphical aspects of this game are revealed. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphics settings and the quality of the development of the main visual aspects. 

SUPPORTED OC AND GRAPHICS API

Apex Legends is supported on Windows 7/8 and  Windows  10.

origin

The priority and primary graphics API for Apex Legends is  DirectX 11 .

GAME ENGINE

Apex Legends is based on the Titanfall Engine (modified by Source). Source is a game engine developed by Valve Corporation and used to create their own computer games. It was first used in Half-Life 2 and Counter-Strike: Source released in 2004.

Source is a game engine, therefore it contains a bunch of different components, including: a graphics engine, a physics engine, etc. One of the features of the engine is its character animation system, in particular, facial animation, which contains many tools for creating expressive facial expressions and precise synchronization of actors' speech with animation; the engine also features advanced game artificial intelligence that can effectively control the player's opponents or allies; the graphics engine was one of the first to use complex shader effects; in games on the engine, shader water was actively used, reflecting the world around it.

The physics engine is based on Havok. It allows you to calculate many physical objects, such as rigid bodies, flexible bodies, ropes, surfaces, etc. It is possible to create realistic vehicles, from cars to hovercraft and helicopters. To calculate the behavior of the vehicle on the road or in the air, many parameters are used, for example, the grip of the wheels with the road, the mass of the car. To give realistic movement to the body, ragdoll physics is used; pre-created animation can be mixed with real-time physics.

R5 Apex 2019 02 05 18 48 21 479
 

With the development of Source, it was added: HDR rendering, dynamic lighting and shading with the ability to self-shadow objects, soft shadows from objects (there is the possibility of using traditional light maps), multi-core rendering for multi-core processors, an advanced particle system. In this game, the Source engine has been reworked. So, according to the statement of the technical director of the game, the rendering system, the sound engine, the scripting system, as well as the network code of the engine for a better connection were updated in the Source engine.

GRAPHICS SETTINGS

Apex Legends has a wide range of graphics settings.

Below we have provided screenshots of the game at various graphics settings, where our readers can see the difference between the minimum and maximum graphics quality settings. 

DIFFERENT QUALITY MODES

The difference between the various settings is visible to the naked eye.

COMPARISON OF SMOOTHING MODES

Activating smoothing completely eliminates all surface irregularities.

Apex Legends lacks stars from the sky - the engine is quite outdated, and the picture itself seems a little grayish. But overall, the game is quite visually pleasing:

All video cards were tested at the maximum graphics quality by the Action! program. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. Below is a video of the test segment :

 Our video cards were tested at resolutions of 1920x1080, 2560x1600 and 3840x2160 at maximum graphics quality settings.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics cards provided by LLC Business Development Center.

 In the test of video cards, the default resolution is 1920x1080, other resolutions are added and removed manually. You can also remove and add any positions of video cards. You can also choose any of our test processors from the list in the drop-down menu, comparing its performance with the given video card tests (by default, the most productive solution is selected).
