Fortnite Notebook and Desktop Benchmarks

Florian Glaser (translated by Andreas Osthoff), 01/30/2018

Battle Royale. Epic Games' Fortnite is a new survival shooter and wants to join the success of PUBG. We check the hardware requirements of the colorful multiplayer title. Is a low-end PC sufficient or do you need a high-end GPU similar to PUBG?

Graphics

A good copy is better than a bad original: Fortnite meets almost all the requirements for this motto. The gameplay is sometimes extremely similar to PlayerUnknown‘s Battlegrounds. After a short lobby phase, an aircraft brings you and other players (up to 99 in total) to a deserted island where you have to fight your rivals while the area gets smaller. You can either play alone, in teams, or squads. The biggest unique feature of Fortnite is the ability to build houses and barricades by collecting wood, stone or metal with your pickax. These constructions can create new tactical possibilities, either for movements or defense.

The controls of Fortnite are much smoother compared to PUBG, which is not only a result of the higher basic speed and softer animations, but also the better overall performance. This is a bit surprising since both titles are based on the Unreal Engine 4. The differences in terms of texture quality should be one reason. PUBG does not really shine with crisp textures in the first place, but objects are much more detailed compared to Fortnite. The latter can, however, hide the muddy textures with its pleasing comic design, which is comparable to some titles from Blizzard (like Overwatch). Fortnite also convinces with an atmospheric day-night cycle and changing lighting conditions.

There is not much to criticize about the graphics options. The corresponding menu consists of 14 settings, starting with the picture mode all the way up to an FPS counter, and they are applied without a restart. You can also choose an automatic mode or use one of four presets if you do not want to change them individually. The presets do not just change several quality settings, they also change the resolution. The low preset, for example, is only displayed in 480p, and the medium setting in 720p, which noticeably affects the sharpness. The performance is increased significantly in return though. There is an optional FPS limit for 30, 60, or 120 frames per second. A switch for VSync is obviously available as well.

Fortnite can be installed via Epic Games launcher. The gaming platform is comparable to its rivals Steam, Uplay, and Origin, but it has more in common with Blizzard's Battlenet due to the limited number of games. Our test is based on the Free2Play version of Fortnite, which occupies about 16 GB on your hard drive right now, so it is similar to PUBG (13 GB). The developer could improve the loading and connection times, which are a slightly too long for our taste. We also encountered some error messages (not unlike PUBG), but Fortnite is currently still in an early-access state, so you should not be too critical here.

Benchmarks

The PvE missions are not included in the F2P version and there is no replay feature according to our information, so we use the classic Battle Royale mode for our benchmarks. All players are thrown into a kind of lobby and can play around before the actual game starts. Because of the bigger spawn area and the 10 instead of 60-second countdown, it is unfortunately not easy to follow a certain sequence (see video) compared to PUBG, and there are some performance fluctuations even if it works. It is a fast first-person shooter, so the target result should be higher than 60 FPS. We would say you should at least manage 40 FPS to play Fortnite.

Results

If you ignore low and medium settings, which are often limited by the CPU on powerful systems (compare notebook and desktop versions of the GTX 1060, GTX 1070, and GTX 1080, for example), the frame rate depends on the performance of the graphics card.

You will need an upper mainstream GPU like the GeForce GTX 1050 if you want to play Fortnite at high settings and 1080p. A combination of Full HD and the Epic preset requires a GeForce GTX 970M or better, while more expensive GPUs only pay off at higher resolutions. QHD panels (2560x1440 pixels) require a GeForce GTX 1060 or better, and at least a GeForce GTX 1080 is needed for 4K displays (3840x2160 pixels). The requirements are still moderate if you take in all the results. The main rival PUBG performs much worse and suffers from annoying performance drops.

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.

Editor of the original article: Florian Glaser - Managing Editor Gaming
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.

I grew up with computers and modern consumer electronics. I am interested in the technology since I had my first computer, a Commodore C64, and started building my own PCs after that. My focus here at Notebookcheck is the business segment including mobile workstations, but I also like to test new mobile devices. It is always a great experience to review and compare new products. My free time is filled with a lot of sports, in the summer mainly on my bike.
