Need for Speed Heat Laptop and Desktop Benchmarks

Hit and run. In Need for Speed Heat, players are going to battle against law enforcers on wheels. Our review straightens out whether graphics cards are going to heat up as well.

Need for Speed Heat

Technology

Heat's graphics are based on the versatile engine from DICE, the developers behind the Battlefield franchise. The company's powerful Frostbite 3 engine cuts a fine figure not only in first- and third-person shooters (Battlefront 2, Anthem, Mirror's Edge Catalyst, etc.) but also in RPGs (Dragon Age Inquisition, Mass Effect Andromeda, etc.), sport simulations (FIFA 20), and racing games.

The same goes for the new Need for Speed, which does not have to hide behind the likes of GRID 2019. To be sure, visually there is still room for improvement in some parts, but all in all Heat's graphics can convince. The good effects and the really detailed vehicles are especially great. The implementation of destructible environments is one of the strong points of the engine as well. Nearly every object on the street can be destroyed with one's sport car, be it road signs, lights, or trees.

But the atmosphere of Heat leaves an ambiguous impression. Indeed, the opulent view and the huge vegetation create a fitting ambience but at the same time the world seems lifeless due to missing pedestrians. Furthermore, the developers should revise the far from perfect driving behavior, the limited damage model, the AI (other cars cause too many accidents) and the overall balance (police cheats). The same goes for the loading times, which are especially long when combined with old HDDs.

We cannot criticize the graphics menu, though. Changes are kept without needing to restart the game and the custom mode allows for 13 separate options that can be quickly adjusted by presets. Notwithstanding the above, Vertical Synchronization, HDR, and Motion Blur can be switched on and off easily. Moreover, an optional Resolution Scaling (our scores are based on the standard option of 100%) completes the picture. The download size is about 31 GB.

Benchmark

Gaming speed scores can be easily measured by the Fraps tool since the game allows only DirectX 11 and doesn't offer DirectX 12. The video below shows that we don't use a preset race for benchmarking but an individually built route through the city. First, we fast travel to the Part Shop, which can be unlocked early in the game. After that, we open the map again and set a waypoint to the Tornado circuit track, which should have been unlocked at the start of the campaign as well.

The ride along the yellow navigation line is about a minute long and offers a good assessment of the anticipated overall performance within the game (it's not a worst-case scenario). One should aim for at least 40 fps to smoothly play the game. Serious gamers will prefer a frame rate of at least 60 fps, though.

Results

HD (1280x720)

Even though the system requirements are moderate we recommend a dedicated graphics card. Accordingly, a Radeon RX Vega 8 failed to deliver a smooth performance even in 1280x720 resolution and a low preset. But you should be safe to play in these options if you own at least a midrange GPU like the GeForce GTX 950M

FHD (1920x1080)

We recommend a GPU of the upper midrange class to play Heat smoothly on an FHD screen. While a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti should be sufficient for medium and high presets, your gaming device should sport at least a GeForce GTX 1650 for the ultra preset.

QHD (2560x1440) & UHD (3840x2160)

All higher resolutions demand a high-end chip. GPUs like the GeForce GTX 1070 or GTX 1660 Ti should be able to master 2560x1440 resolution and maximum details. If you want to play in 4K and ultra preset then you should own Nvidia's top model GeForce RTX 2080.

Note

Game-benchmarking is very time consuming and often further impeded by activation limits and the like. Hence, we only offer a part of our benchmark scores at this time but we will deliver scores with additional graphics cards in the upcoming days and weeks.

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.

Because of my interest in computer games I started studying computer science, became a psychologist, but stayed true to the games and the hardware. For example during my year abroad in London as a games tester at Sega. In my spare time I find a balance between PC games and sports (meanwhile mainly indoor soccer and running after my toddler), playing guitar and building bamboo bikes (well, so far only one under guidance).
