BASIC INFORMATION ON THE GAME

 SonsOfTheForest 2023 02 25 14 20 20 503

Testing older video cards in Sons Of The Forest has been done to determine performance on these devices. Some players may have older PCs or laptops that don't have new graphics cards and need to know how the game works on their systems.

With all possible support in expanding the test bench for this type of testing, GIGABYTE kindly helped us .

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

Sons Of The Forest is supported by Windows 10/11. The priority and primary graphics API for Sons Of The Forest is DX 12 .

GAME ENGINE

unity pro card.jpeg

The Unity based game is a feature rich game engine that is used to create games and applications on a variety of platforms including PC, mobile devices, consoles and virtual reality. Here are some of the main components that are included in the Unity game engine:

  1. Graphics Engine: Unity uses a powerful graphics engine that supports the display of 3D models, textures, lights, shadows, and other visual effects. It uses modern technologies such as HDR (High Dynamic Range) and Realistic Physical Rendering (PBR).

  2. Physics Engine: Unity has a built-in physics engine that allows developers to create realistic physics for game objects such as gravity, collisions, friction, and springs. Unity's physics engine is based on NVIDIA's PhysX engine.

  3. Audio Engine: Unity supports various audio file formats and has a built-in audio engine that allows you to play sound effects and music in the game.

  4. Artificial Intelligence: Unity includes several tools for creating artificial intelligence (AI) for game objects. Developers can create AI agents using machine learning and watch how they interact with the outside world.

  5. Scripting Engine: Unity has a powerful scripting system that allows developers to create and manage scenes in a game, including visually designing scenes and programming interactions between objects.

  6. Input System: Unity supports input from mice, keyboards, controllers, and other input devices. Developers can easily customize and process user input in their games.

  7. Resource Management System: Unity has a resource management system that automatically loads and unloads resources based on their use in the game.

MSI Afterburner

 
All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality by 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 3840x2160 with ultra graphics quality settings.

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 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 productive CPU in this game and is scaled to other processors, taking into account their testing on NVIDIA and AMD video cards.

At a resolution of 1920x1080, an average FPS of 25 frames was shown by video cards of the Radeon RX 470 or GeForce GTX 1060 level . A minimum FPS of at least 25 frames can be provided by video cards of the Radeon RX 470 or GeForce GTX 1060 level .  

At a resolution  of 2560x1440, an average FPS of 25 frames was shown by video cards of the Radeon RX 5500 or GeForce GTX 1070 level . A minimum FPS of at least 25 frames can be provided by video cards of the level Radeon RX 580 or GeForce GTX 1070  

At a resolution  of 3840x2160, an average FPS of 25 frames was shown by video cards of the Radeon RX Vega 56 or GeForce GTX 1080 level . A minimum FPS of at least 25 frames can be provided by video cards of the Radeon RX 5700 XT level . 

VIDEO MEMORY CONSUMPTION

aft

Testing of the video memory consumed by the game was carried out by the  MSI Afterburner program. The results on video cards from AMD and NVIDIA at resolutions of  1920x1080, 2560x1440 and 3840x2160 with various anti-aliasing settings were taken as the indicator. By default, the graph displays the most up-to-date solutions. Other graphics cards are added and removed from the chart at the reader's request.
