Farming Simulator 22 Performance Analysis

Let the farming begin. After three years of absence the famed farming simulator finally returns to PC. We conducted our performance analysis to determine system requirements.

Farming Simulator 22

Technology

Positives first: Giants Software has used the unusually long break to improve the visuals. For a 2021 game, Farming Simulator 22 does not look impressive, which is not surprising given that the title is developed by a small team. Nevertheless, the improved visuals are welcome, and there are plenty of improvements.

In addition to the texture quality, the draw distance has also been significantly improved. The effects have been reworked as well. The vegetation and vehicle models also look better. The developers paid a lot of attention to the way the agricultural machinery looks in the game.

The graphics settings menu is praise-worthy. For instance, it contains options which we did not expect to see in a farming simulator (DLSS & FidelityFX). In the advanced graphics menu, there are more than 20 settings. Some settings have a bigger impact on performance than others.

Those who do not want to tinker with individual settings can use presets to achieve the desired level of performance. In total, there are four presets, some of which have a bigger impact on the visuals than others. The game looks great only at the highest settings, though. The developers should definitely do more work on the engine. The loading times are quite long and there are also occasional micro-stutters.

Benchmark

In Farming Simulator 22 the frame rate is limited to 60 FPS by default (even with vertical synchronisation disabled). This was also the case with Farming Simulator 19. This issue can be resolved by editing the game.xml file which is located in the My Games folder, which is in itself located in the Documents folder. The command line under <developement> should be changed from “false” to “true”. After this procedure, the frame rate cap can be removed by pressing F3 when in the game. By pressing F2 you can enable the frame rate counter to confirm that the FPS limiter is disabled.

Farming Simulator 22

For our benchmark, we start the game at a low difficulty level and  – as can be seen in the video below  – take a run around the wheat field. We record the frame rates with the help of CapFrameX. In our opinion, 40 FPS is perfectly fine for such a title. However, the game starts to feel really smooth only at above 60 FPS.

Results

The benchmarks were conducted mainly using the laptops which our partners MSI and XMG (Schenker Technologies) lent us.

FHD (1920x1080)

Despite a jump in visual fidelity, the system requirements are still very moderate. With powerful GPUs, the performance is bottlenecked by the CPU as our 1080p chart clearly shows. Much-loved mid-range GPUs such as the GeForce GTX 1650 and the GTX 1650 Ti manage to achieve 60 FPS on average at 1080p and maximum settings.

UHD (3840x2160)

However, at 4K the title requires a powerful GPU to hit playable frame rates at the highest setting. Here, you will need at least an RTX 3060.

Note

Because benchmarking video games is very time consuming and is often constrained by installation/activation limits, at the time of publishing, we were able to provide only a part of our performance analysis of Farming Simulator 22. Other graphics cards will be added in the coming days and weeks.

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.

I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood, growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 1990s. I was especially fascinated with computer games, even from an early age. From Monkey Island through Lands of Lore to Doom, I tried every game I could get my hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with my focus mostly being on high-performance gaming laptops.

And more recently, I took an interest in artificial intelligence.
