Diablo IV v. 1.3.5: PC Performance Benchmarks for Graphics Cards and Processors

BASIC GAME INFORMATION

Diablo IV 2024 03 26 19 21 38 442

We tested Diablo IV with the RT patch at the highest graphics settings, on video cards from the GEFORCE RTX and RADEON RX series. Also, during the tests we conducted, we assessed the performance and quality of the graphic display of the game itself.

THE GRAFICAL PART

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

SUPPORTED OS AND GRAPHICS API

Diablo IV is supported on Windows 10/11.

sys 

The preferred and primary graphics API for Diablo IV is DX12 .

Diablo IV v. 1.3.5
 
An update for Diablo 4 that adds ray tracing was released today, March 26, significantly improving the game's visuals. Ray tracing technology enhances shadows and reflections for a more realistic, painterly look.

Ray tracing allows you to achieve more natural lighting in the game, improving the quality of shadows and reflections. Now the shadows become softer and more natural, especially at a distance from the light source. Reflections on surfaces such as water become more detailed, adding depth and realism to the game world.

The update also improves ambient occlusion and contact shadows, further enhancing the visual experience of the Diablo 4 world. Ambient shading helps you better understand how objects block light, improving the perception of shape and depth in a scene. Contact shadows now apply to more characters, improving their visual interaction with the world around them.

On PC, to enable ray tracing and other visual enhancements, you must select the appropriate settings in the game menu. Console owners will also get improved visuals, such as higher-quality textures and realistic lighting, albeit at a fixed frame rate of 30 FPS.

For users of NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics cards, the update includes support for DLSS technology, which allows for increased performance and image quality, compensating for the increased load from enabling ray tracing.

Thus, the update for Diablo 4 not only improves the visual experience of the game, but also optimizes performance, allowing players to enjoy a better and more immersive gaming environment.

MSI Afterburner

 
All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality using MSI Afterburner. 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 , 2560x1440 and 3840x2160 with maximum graphics quality settings with RT .

In the video card test, 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 select 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). The test is carried out on the most powerful CPU in this game and is scaled to other processors, taking into account their testing on NVIDIA and AMD video cards.

The test was carried out on the basic configuration of Core i 9 13900K with 32 GB DDR5 6400 MHz pre-installed memory. All used RAM was taken as an indicator. The RAM test for the entire system was carried out on various video cards without launching third-party applications (browsers, etc.). In the graphics, you can add and remove any resolutions and video cards as desired.
