Ubisoft’s For Honor Gaming Benchmarks And Performance Numbers

Ubisoft’s For Honor takes you back to medieval times and puts you in the shoes of either knights, vikings and samurai, depending on what you opt for. I for one went for Knights faction and you can check out my first impression of the game. While this is an interesting concept it seems that the game has hit a major bump as users are reporting bugs and errors in the game that keep players from playing the game at all. Plus the game is only online, another bummer. But we are going to talk about For Honor gaming benchmarks here.

For Honor Gaming Benchmarks 1080p

For Honor is a pretty GPU-friendly game if you are playing it at 1080p. You will need a GTX 1060 or RX 470 to get the game running at 60 FPS at 1080p. I ran the game on my GTX 1080 and found the average frames well above 60 most of the time. Even older cards like the GTX 780 Ti and R9 290X also proved to work with the game and gave an average FPS of 60. You can check out the benchmarks below:

For Honor Gaming Benchmarks 1440p

Taking things up a notch by increasing the resolution and things get a bit stressful for the GPUs as you can see in the benchmarks below. For a smooth experience at 1440p, you will need to have a GTX 1070 or RX 480. But if you need 60 FPS at all times then you would be better off with the GTX 1080 as it will be able to keep up with the extra pixels.

For Honor Gaming Benchmarks 4k

At 4K you will not be able to get stable 60 FPS with a single GPU. Even with the top of the line Titan XP, you will be able to hover at the 50 FPS mark. SLI configurations will come in handy here if you are looking to get smooth 60 FPS at 4K resolution. You could look into a dual GTX 1080 configuration or if you can afford to live on the bleeding edge you can opt to go for a dual Titan XP configuration.

Different CPUs were tested with the Titan XP and we saw that the older AMD FX chips lagged behind and were clearly beaten by the Intel Core i3 series CPU. Any modern CPU will be able to run this game at 1080p 60 FPS. This was our take on the For Honor gaming benchmarks. Hope that these stats are useful for you. Let us know what you think about these benchmarks.
