Rage 2 Laptop and Desktop Benchmarks

Effect fireworks. Rage 2 comes eight years after its predecessor and is id Software's latest post-apocalyptic shooter. As the cover art implies, the game should be even more colourful and action-packed than Rage. Read on to find out which graphics cards can tame this savage title.

Rage 2

Technology

We can sum up Rage 2 in one sentence: Borderlands meets Mad Max. While veteran studio id Software solely developed Rage, it has involved Avalanche Studios for Rage 2, which is mainly known for the Just Cause series.

Gone is the id Tech 5 engine that underpinned Rage, which may not necessarily be a bad thing. id Software incorporated visual texturing into id Tech 5, the inclusion of which has been controversial. id Tech 5 has been replaced by the Apex game engine, which Avalanche Studios develops. The latter can, as fans of the Just Cause series will attest, conjure huge, freely accessible game worlds with tremendous viewing distances. Another highlight of Apex is its ability to produce visually impressive explosions, lighting, smoke and things like muzzle flashes.

Speaking of weapons, Rage 2 shines with its first-class weapon feedback as many id-developed games have done. The experience in Rage 2 reminds us of Doom and is very satisfying. If your hardware is powerful enough, then Rage 2 will not only look buttery smooth with its fast-paced movements, but also gameplay will look incredibly smooth. Few other engines can deliver as rounded an experience as Apex can.

We were less satisfied with the quality of Rage 2’s textures though. Some surfaces still look blurry even at maximum graphics. We have definitely seen sharper textures from games released in 2019. Nevertheless, Rage 2 has a coherent overall look, in our opinion.

Avalanche and id have not skimped on graphics options though. Rage 2 includes over 20 graphics options, which take some time to scroll through. The upper part covers settings for resolution, picture mode and VSync. Below these are four presets along with options to fine-tune the look of the game.

Rage 2 uses resolution scaling by default, which alters the resolution to minimise performance bottlenecks and keep frame rates at optimal levels. We conducted our benchmarks with this disabled, for reference.

No graphics changes require a reboot. All take effect when you apply them, which saves time having to wait for the game to reload.

We have included screenshots below of the four presets for you to compare the differences between them. In our opinion, Rage 2 looks visually impressive when at all presets apart from low. The game starts to shine from the medium preset upwards, and there are only minor differences to our eyes between the high and maximum presets. Both presets look and perform more or less the same. Curiously, Avalanche and id appear to have developed Rage 2 to run at a minimum of 30 FPS. We say that as the game runs in slow-motion speed when frame rates drop below that threshold, along with the typical stuttering that accompanies gaming at below 30 FPS.

Benchmark

Avalanche and id have based Rage 2 on the Vulkan API, which does not currently work with Fraps, the frame-rate recording tool that we typically use for our gaming benchmarks. Luckily there is OCAT, a tool that has served us well, albeit with a few quirks, during our Destiny 2 and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus tests.

However, we needed to employ a few tricks to get OCAT to work with Rage 2. The game always crashes if we start it with OCAT already running. A workaround is to launch Rage 2, press Alt + Tab to return to the desktop and open OCAT, before returning to the game. OCAT stores its results in C:\This PC\Documents\OCAT\Captures as perf_summary. Opening this reveals the average in-game FPS while OCAT was running.

Our benchmark consists of a 30-40 second drive from Vineland, where the in-game tutorial starts, to the Highroad Block blockade, which is on the way to the first main quest. We have included a video below of the route.

Results

HD (1280x720)

Rage 2 is graphically challenging, even at 720p. Integrated GPUs like the Intel HD Graphics 630 are not powerful enough to play the game smoothly even at minimum graphics in this resolution. The same is the case for low-end older GPUs like the GeForce GTX 960M too. Hence, you will need at least a GeForce GTX 965M, or better still a GeForce GTX 1050, to play Rage 2 comfortably in 720p at minimum graphics.

FHD (1920x1080)

Stepping up to 1080p requires a GeForce GTX 980M or better. The card averages playable frame rates on the medium preset, but we would recommend a minimum of a GeForce GTX 1060 for playing on the high and ultra presets.

QHD (2560x1440) & UHD (3840x2160)

A mix of 1440p and the maximum preset makes even high-end GPUs sweat. You can only expect jerk-free gameplay from a GeForce GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 Max-Q. Moreover, only the GeForce RTX 2080 is currently powerful enough out of laptop GPUs to play Rage 2 smoothly at 2160p, better known as 4K.

Please note:

Gaming tests are often time-consuming and are hampered by activation or installation limits. Hence, we can currently only provide some of the benchmarks for Rage 2. We shall update this article with more GPUs in the coming days and weeks.

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.

Prior to writing and translating for Notebookcheck, I worked for various companies including Apple and Neowin. I have a BA in International History and Politics from the University of Leeds, which I have since converted to a Law Degree. Happy to chat on Twitter or Notebookchat.
