F1 2011 Benchmarks

In addition to having received positive reception from critics, F1 2011 is the only Formula One racing game in 2011 thus far with the FIA license. In our following benchmarks, we summarize the graphics performance of the PC game through a number of desktop and laptop graphics cards.

Testing methodology

F1 2011 contains an integrated benchmark function found in the graphics settings in the “My F1” submenu. We used this built-in function as well as the default MSAA settings on Low, Medium, High and Ultra preset graphical settings.

The results for each preset on various notebook and desktop graphics cards are shown below. Additional technical information on each notebook GPU can be seen on their respective graphics card pages.

Benchmark analysis

On the highest detail settings with 4x MSAA, F1 2011 can become quite demanding. Even with the high-end GeForce GTX 570M, we were only able to get an average of 40 FPS. A desktop equipped with the fast mid-range Radeon HD 5850 achieved similar results.

On high detail settings with 2X MSAA, fast midrange desktop graphics cards like the Radeon HD 5650 or the mobile GeForce GT 540M provide sufficiently smooth gameplay at well over 30 FPS on average.

Users who opt for the lowest quality settings will be sacrificing a lot of eye candy, but the game will in turn run quite well even on systems with the integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000. Unfortunately, users stuck with slower graphics cards such as the GeForce G210M will be unable to play the game at acceptable frame rates regardless of the visual setting.

Note: All tested games can be found in our gaming list.

Legend
5Stutters – This game is very likely to stutter and have poor frame rates. Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, average frame rates are expected to fall below 25fps
May Stutter – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, stutters and poor frame rates are expected.
30Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 25fps
40Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 35fps
60Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 58fps
May Run Fluently – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, fluent frame rates are expected.
?Uncertain – This graphics card experienced unexpected performance issues during testing for this game. A slower card may be able to achieve better and more consistent frame rates than this particular GPU running the same benchmark scene.
Uncertain – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game and no reliable interpolation can be made based on the performances of surrounding cards of the same class or family.
The value in the fields displays the average frame rate of all values in the database. Move your cursor over the value to see individual results.
