Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is an ambitious game from Ninja Theory and I am sure there are some of you who are wondering how well it will run on your system. Thankfully, the following Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice benchmarks should answer that.
These Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice benchmarks are a result of intensive testing with multiple GPUs ranging from the RX 460 to the GTX 1080. The CPU used for this test was the Intel Core i7 6800k clocked at 4.1 GHz. Other than that 32 GB of Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2666MHz was used.
The motherboard used for these Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice benchmarks was the ASUS X99A-II. It is interesting to see Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice benchmarks at 1080p, 1440p and 4K. The game seems to be pretty well optimized for PC even though there are limited settings that you can alter.
But Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has very few options that you can play around with and this is something people will not be pleased with. There are no camera settings you can not change the FOV or the mouse speed. There is very little that you can change in the settings menu. It is important to mention that the game features 21:9 ultra widescreen support.
The entry-level RX 460 is able to run the game at 30 FPS using the very high preset. You can get better frames by reducing the graphics a bit. You will need at least an RX 570 in order to run the game at 60 FPS. The RX 480 was able to run the game at an average FPS of 63 which is impressive.
It is safe to say that the game runs well on mid-range GPUs. But if you want to play the game at 1440p 60 FPS then the 1060 is not going to cut it. You will need to move up. The Nvidia GTX 1070 is able to run the game at 67 FPS while the GTX 1080 is able to run the game at 80 FPS at 1440p.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice benchmarks at 4K reveal that even the GTX 1080 cannot run the game at 4K 60 FPS. At 4K the GTX 1070 manages to run the game at 34 FPS and the 1080 runs the game at 42 FPS. You might have better luck at 4k 60 FPS with the GTX 1080 Ti or the Titan Xp. Check out more details here.
