A couple of days ago, Capcom released the Chainsaw Demo for Resident Evil 4 Remake on PC. As such, we’ve decided to benchmark it on our main PC system, and share our first PC performance impressions.
In order to capture the following gameplay footage, we used an Intel i9 9900K, 16GB of DDR4 at 3800Mhz, and NVIDIA’s RTX 4090. We also used Windows 10 64-bit, and the GeForce 531.26 driver.
Resident Evil 4 Remake will have A LOT of graphics settings. Moreover, it will have ray-traced reflections (something that the demo already supports).
At Native 4K/Max Settings and with Ray Tracing, our NVIDIA RTX4090 was able to run the game smoothly. For the most part, the demo was running with framerates between 90-110fps. At the end of the video, though, we can see our Intel i9 9900K bottlenecking the RTX4090, even at 4K. Now the good news here is that this dated CPU can still maintain framerates over 70fps. Moreover, you can get a significant performance increase if you simply disable the game’s Ray Tracing effects.
Anyway, this may be the last game in which we’ll be using our Intel i9 9900K. You’ll learn more about this in the coming days (hopefully next weekend).
Enjoy the following video and stay tuned for more!
