PC performance analysis for Life is Strange True Colors

PC performance analysis for Life is Strange True Colors

Tech Highlights:

  • For this PC Performance Analysis, we used an Intel i9 9900K with 16GB of DDR4 at 3600Mhz, AMD’s Radeon RX580, RX Vega 64, RX 6900XT, NVIDIA’s GTX980Ti, RTX 2080Ti and RTX 3080. We also used Windows 10 64-bit, the GeForce 471.96 and the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 21.8.2 drivers. And yes, you read that right. We’ve purchased an AMD Radeon RX 6900XT.

  • Square Enix has just released Life is Strange True Colors on PC. Powered by Unreal Engine 4 and supporting Ray Tracing Shadows and DX12, it’s time to benchmark it and see how it performs on the PC platform.

Now let me go into some more details about our RX 6900XT. The reason we got an RX 6900XT and not an RX 6800XT is because we found (from a retailer) the 6900XT at the same price as most 6800XTs currently cost. Therefore, we’ll be using in our articles the XFX Speedster SWFT 319 AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.

In order to find out how the game scales on multiple CPU threads, we simulated a dual-core, a quad-core and a hexa-core CPU. And, we are happy to report that this game does not require a high-end CPU. Even without Hyper-Threading, our simulated dual-core CPU was able to provide a smooth gaming experience. Furthermore, the game appears to scale on more than six CPU threads which is excellent news.

Life is Strange True Colors does not have any built-in benchmark tool. As such, we’ve benchmarked the main street area. This area appeared to be the most demanding scene in the game’s opening chapter.
