Fallout 4 will support Nvidia GameWorks effects




Fallout 4 uses the GameWorks techniques from Nvidia. This should allow more complex and more impressive graphical effects, but it can also lead to worse the game runs on AMD video cards or the effects it will not work at all.

Developer and publisher of Fallout 4, Bethesda, it has news shared with WccfTech. Although the advanced effects are additive, which requires it its toll on the performance of the game. Especially with AMD graphics cards is that noticeable. Developers can’ll receive a license for the implementation of Nvidia GameWorks, but can not share the code of the functions with AMD, which makes driver optimizations for AMD in these areas are not possible. That company has since also in the past criticized ruled on.

A recent example of this practice is The Witcher 3, in which Nvidia Hairworks effects work on both platforms, but the impact on the performance of AMD graphics cards is greater than that of Nvidia. Batman: Arkham Knight is an instance in which the securities are not available in their entirety on AMD hardware.

It is currently uncertain whether GameWorks effects only work on hardware and Nvidia or AMD graphics cards can handle the effects decent. The Gameworks effects are in any case optional. The system requirements for the game seem to point to advance to a discrepancy. The weakest graphic card on which the game system according to the rotation is an Nvidia GTX 550Ti or an AMD Radeon HD 7870. The performance of these two cards, however, do not match; AMD video card is newer and more powerful than Nvidia.
