So, I made this a couple of years ago: http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/...aphics-settings-and-their-performance-impact/ I didn't feel like going as in-depth, but I thought it would be nice to see an up-to-date version of this performance test, this time including the Remastered presets. I'm still using the same PC, although I have switched out the graphics card. The specs now are i7-4790k, GTX 1080, 16gb ram. All screenshots are at 2560x1440. I've forced sharpening off in all the screenshots, because screw sharpening! Most of these presets cap out at 144 because that's my monitor's refresh rate. Lowest (144 fps) Very Low (143 fps) Low (143 fps) Medium (143 fps) Slightly High (143 fps) High (119 fps) Very High (108 fps) Remastered (78 fps) Ultra Mode (20 fps) I can remember when I got my 1080 I felt like in-game framerates roughly doubled, so I don't get the impression global lab version has done much to improve overall game performance. It would be interesting if I still had the 980 so I could do a direct comparison though. Looking at settings below Remastered, the graphics have changed a little bit in the last 2 years. Pearl Abyss have changed the LOD settings to show better detail at longer ranges at settings Medium to Very High. Also looks like better shadowing on the foliage, but maybe that's just the time of day difference. As for Remastered, it looks like it's Very High preset + all of the new rendering features. The LOD settings are the same as Very High. High End mode is now gone from the game. High End was basically the exact same as Very High except that better LOD models were used in the distance. Ultra Mode is similar to this, except it uses better LOD models at an even longer ranges, and it also uses more demanding versions of Remastered rendering features. This makes it pretty good for screenshots, but good luck using it for anything else unless you have a godlike PC. I did some PvE combat with Remastered (not Ultra Mode) and framerates hold up pretty well. I average around 60 fps during combat, and it's 10-20 higher than that when outside combat. I really, really hope they add the feature to tweak the various features Remastered has added to the game. It's a bit absurd there are no new options besides those two new presets.
