In the PC version of Fallout we performed 76 benchmarks with different hardware and compare the optics of all quality levels.
Fallout 76 is still criticized by many players, including the technique of the game. Apart from graphics errors and a depth blur that can only be switched off via INI-Tweak , among other things the generally often old-fashioned appearance and the limitation of the maximum frames per second to 63 fps are among the annoyances that we ourselves can confirm.
Which graphics card you needed to achieve the said 63 fps in Full HD, WQHD and 4K reliable, we have checked with benchmarks. In addition, we compare the look of the game on the four different presets and address the memory requirements.
Official system requirements
The official system requirements are a bit strange, as there are usually few differences between the minimum and recommended information. So the Core i5 6600K (four cores, four threads), which is minimally recommended, is often almost as fast as the older Core i7 4790 (four cores, eight threads) , despite the lack of virtual core doubling . The same applies to the corresponding AMD models Ryzen 3 1300X (minimum specification) and Ryzen 5 1500X (recommended specification).
The mentioned graphics cards are also not too far apart, but here plays the larger amount of video memory in the recommended models a not to be underestimated role, as Fallout 76 is quite memory hungry. In terms of memory, again, there is no difference in the official system requirements; both the minimum and recommended hardware require 8.0 GB of RAM.
