For Honor Notebook and Desktop Benchmarks

Florian Glaser, Klaus Hinum, Stefanie Voigt (translated by Bernie Pechlaner), 02/23/2017

Trinity. After Rainbow Six Siege and The Division, Ubisoft releases their next Triple-A title, which focuses primarily on riveting multiplayer battlers. Knights, Samurai and Vikings - For Honor actually pits three different factions against each other. Our review focuses primarily on how different GPUs handle the various swinging swords, katanas and axes.

Graphics

Not surprisingly, Ubisoft once again relies on their own AnvilNext Engine, which the company uses for various other titles its lineup in either a beefed-up or pared-down version (Assassin‘s Creed-series, Rainbow Six SiegeSteepGhost Recon Wildlands, ...). From a technical standpoint, For Honor leaves us with a good to very good impression. The textures are largely sharp and the intricate details as well as the good-looking effects are other positive attributes. The gaming universe, which is based on medieval times, contains plenty of atmosphere.

One of the game's most differentiating attributes is the combat system, which seems to follow the principle "easy to learn, but difficult to master". Thanks to the multitude of maneuvers and varied as well as nicely choreographed animations and finishing moves, For Honor doesn't feel stale and routine nearly as quickly as the hack-and-slash competitor Ryse from Crytek (which features quite similar gameplay). The standard opponents in single player mode, however, do get boring after a while and might invite the user to just keep on clicking. Speaking of single player mode: For Honor requires a constant online connection, even though this shouldn't be necessary unless the game is running in multi player or in co-op mode.

The developers did a good job with the options menu. In order to avoid crowding, the options are separated into two separate menus. The Display tab allows for monitor adjustments like mode, resolution, frequency, vertical synchronization, field of view, and contrast.    

The Graphics tab allows the user to change ten options - texture filter, anti-aliasing (FXAA, SMAA, TAA), ambient occlusion and motion blur, among others - which are explained at length in some cases. We recommend to leave "render scaling" at 100 % if at all possible, since the picture tends to be fuzzy otherwise.

Users who don't want to spend a lot of time fine-tuning the game can just simply use one of the four quality presets. We used the highest preset called "Extreme" for our screenshots as well as the benchmark video. Except for the extremely demanding SSAA, all other settings are set to their respective maximum here, which results in an outstanding visual experience. The comparison photos below show that shadows don't quite look as clean on "High".

The preset "Medium" is almost indistinguishable from "High", which translate into a marginal gain in performance. The "Low" setting - and hence minimum details - results in a significant loss in texture quality and also in atmosphere, since both ambient occlusion and anti-aliasing are turned off and the shadows are weak to boot. We'd never call For Honor ugly, though - particularly in light  of the frame rates, which increase significantly at the lowest settings.

An indicator within the options menu shows how much VRAM is going to be needed. Compared to other games released in 2016 and 2017 (examples: Resident Evil 7Call of Duty Infinite WarfareDeus Ex Mankind Divided, ...), For Honor doesn't require too much video RAM. With the preset "Extreme" active, the game uses 2 GB for Full-HD and 4 GB for 4K resolution.

Most of the settings can be adjusted while a game is running, but some require switching back to the main menu. A restart of the game is seemingly never necessary  - a good thing, considering the long initial load time and the fact that the intro videos can't be skipped. Within the game, the load times are acceptable (we tested with both HDDs and SSDs).

We didn't run into any technical issues during benchmarking and when playing, although For Honor didn't run properly in fullscreen mode when using Nvidia's Optimus technology and refused to run with the integrated GPU altogether. This is particularly surprising because the title is part of Nvidia's gaming program "The way it‘s meant to be played" and we had the newest driver (ForceWare 378.66) installed as well. 

Otherwise, we didn't encounter any anomalies like graphic errors or crashes. At the time of writing, For Honor requires about 36 GB of disk space. The download itself is 32 GB - a so-so result, considering modern games usually require between 10 and 70 GB.

Benchmark

Just like Ubisoft's Rainbow Six Siege and The Division, For Honor comes with an integrated benchmark test, which can be accessed using the graphics menu. The sequence consists of a 70 second camera sweep through and above a battlefield. Because of the numerous effects (fire, smoke, explosions, physics etc.) and rapid camera movement, this benchmark is almost a "worst case scenario". During the first few single player missions, our primary test rig (MSI GT62VR 6RD with Core i7-6820HK & GeForce GTX 1060) averaged a frame rate plus of 10 % compared to the benchmark sequence.

We appreciate the analysis at the end of the test, which shows the minimum, average and maximum fps (and even a breakdown into different zones). Values below 45 appear in orange and those below 30 in red. For multiplayer gaming we recommend at least 40 fps, even though the third-person perspective isn't quite as sensitive to frame rates. For single player mode, a lower frame rate might be acceptable as well.

Results

To play For Honor at a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, a current top-of-the-line GPU is needed. GeForce GTX 1070 is required to push the preset "High" beyond 40 fps. The notebook standard resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels has much lower demands. The setting "Extreme" runs without stutters with a GeForce GTX 970M or better; the preset "High" requires a GeForce GTX 965M and "Medium" at least a GeForce GTX 960M.

Benchmark tests with less powerful Nvidia, Intel and AMD GPUs are going to follow in the next days/weeks. Entry-level and inexpensive or older midrange GPUs are likely only going to work at a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and at low to medium settings.

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.

Growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 90s, I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood. Especially computer games radiated a great fascination for me even then. From Monkey Island to Lands of Lore to Doom, everything was gambled that you could get your hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with focus on high-performance gaming notebooks.

Ended up in the IT sector in the 90s more or less accidentally and have remained in the industry (as a sysadmin) ever since. Always been interested in laptops - first purchase was - if memory serves correctly - a Toshiba Satellite T2115CS with DX4-75 processor, 4 MB of RAM and 350 MB hard disk drive (and Windows 3.1). To this day, laptops appeal to me - much to the chagrin of my wife, who doesn’t seem understand why we need 5-10 of them at any given time ;-).
