Street Fighter V Graphics Quality & Port Report

Street Fighter V Graphics Quality & Port Report
We examine the PC features of Street Fighter V and show you its various graphics options and how they affect gaming image quality.

The latest entry in the nearly 30-year-old Street Fighter series has arrived. Long-time and new fans alike can get excited about the V-Gauge system, which features a meter that builds and allows you to pull off special attacks, utilize attack boosts, or parry. Additionally, new characters Rashid, Laura, F.A.N.G, and Necalli freshen up the gameplay, and cross-platform play unites the PS4 and PC community.



Street Fighter V is built on the ever-impressive Unreal Engine 4, making for improved visuals and performance over the game's predecessor. I'll be taking a look at both today, although focusing much more on the visual aspect and the PC features as unfortunately the game doesn't include an uncapped benchmark à la Street Fighter IV.



Test Setup and System Requirements


The Max Picture Quality setting was used as a baseline for the visual portion of this guide. As well, 3200x1800 resolution via VSR was chosen for the purpose of providing 4K quality screenshots. Multiplayer tests were performed after the post-launch status update volume 5 (published February 27), so my impressions will differ from those who played the game at launch, as various server-side changes have been made since.
