Image Quality Settings
I ran all four stock graphics presets which start at Low, and work through to Medium, High and Ultra. At first I was running just the Ultra test but the benchmark scores were coming out so well I thought I'd run them all, to give us a good look at the difference in performance at all of the presets. There are some surprising results for AMD and its Radeon RX 500, RX Vega and Radeon VII graphics cards, too.
Each of the four graphics presets were run at each resolution: 1080p, 1440p, and 4K. We'll be adding in some 3440x1440 and 8K testing soon, with our first tests looking at just those three mainstream resolutions.
For the benchmarks, I've split the charts into two: Ultra/High Presets and Medium/Low Presets, then you'll see the changes between the detail settings clearer, versus it all shoved in your face at once with four presets and 20 graphics cards.
