F1 24 review: Laptop and desktop benchmarks

Same as it ever was? EA is well-known for only carefully tuning its sports series from year to year. In this benchmark check, you can find out whether the same can be said for F1 24 and what hardware you'll need to run it.

We currently carry out our gaming benchmarks using these devices. Clicking on the photos will take you to the respective manufacturer's website. More details on their specifications are listed at the end of the article.

Tech

Compared to last year's version of the game—F1 23 (which also had a benchmark article)—not much has been changed from a tech standpoint. Even in 2024, the EGO engine created by developer Codemasters still looks good, but it no longer generates any real enthusiasm. Its detailed and stylish vehicles look particularly good.

The game's graphics menu is also almost 1:1 identical to its predecessor. More than 20 advanced options are available within the main tab, all of which can be conveniently adjusted via presets—the same as before. Numerous settings are hidden inside the Video Mode submenu, which, in addition to resolution and picture mode, also contains controls for Vsync, frame rate limit, anisotropic filtering and edge smoothing. Codemasters has given the game support for TAA, DLSS, FSR and XeSS, and Frame Generation is also on board. It additionally masters ray tracing, which is automatically activated with the Ultra High level selected. F1 24 can also be launched in VR mode if desired.

Great: All changes are applied without needing to restart the game. Codemasters doesn't provide comparison images for the individual settings, but you do get some text explanations.

Although the underlying technology is mature by now, we were faced with the odd problem during our test. Crashes and error messages occurred from time to time and changes to its resolution sometimes didn't work reliably. The game also took quite a long time to start (partly due to the many infographics).

Benchmark

F1 24 has inherited the integrated benchmark from its predecessor—which includes several tracks, weather conditions and camera angles. Similar to last year, we used the Australian circuit with dry, clear weather and a changing camera.

We again had the option to display the frame rate during the measurement and at the end, a somewhat more detailed evaluation was displayed (see video and screenshots). We would describe the game as playable from 40fps.

Results


FHD (1,920 x 1,080)

As long as you do without ray tracing, F1 24 is rather harmless when it comes to how graphically demanding it is. Entry-level models such as the iGPUs Radeon 780M and Intel Arc 8 are sometimes enough to achieve 1,920 x 1,080 pixels using the preset High. For ultra settings including ray tracing in Full HD, we recommend at least an RTX 4050, i.e. a mid-range graphics card.

QHD (2,560 x 1,440)

You also don't need a top-of-the-range model when using QHD displays. A combination of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels and maximum details runs smoothly enough with a GeForce RTX 4070 or better.

UHD (3,840 x 2,160)

4K monitors are where the wheat gets separated from the chaff. 3,840 x 2,160 pixels and the Ultra High preset require Nvidia's current top performer, the GeForce RTX 4090. Thankfully, things look much better with upscaling activated. An RTX 4070 is sufficient for DLSS Quality in 4K.

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.
