Spider-Man Miles Morales: laptop and desktop benchmarks

High above the city. About three months after the release of Spider-Man Remastered, Spider-Man Miles Morales has now also made its way to the PC. In this review, we test out the game to see how smoothly it can swing between skyscrapers with various graphics cards.

Technical aspects

Nixxes Software is responsible for porting Spider-Man Miles Morales to the PC. The Dutch game studio is already known for its other PC ports (e.g. Marvel's Avengers, Shadow of the Tomb Raider & Deus Ex: Mankind Divided) and has made a good name for itself over the years.

Apart from a few minor quirks, Miles Morales likewise cuts an excellent figure technically. Although the original version is already more than two years old, the third-person action game still manages to impress with fluid animations, detailed models, stylish effects, a modern lighting system and very sharp textures.

We also think Miles Morales has terrific game design. Thanks to the brisk intro, players can dive right into the game and its story. Moreover, it also has great gameplay (the battle system reminds us of the Batman Arkham series) and a presentation that is fit for a film.

We also want to praise the comprehensive graphics menu, which is divided into two tabs due to the sheer number of options. Whilst settings such as resolution, V-Sync, HDR, upscaling (both FSR and DLSS are supported) and anti-aliasing (SMAA, TAA & DLAA) are found in the display menu, there more than 20 individual options available in the graphics menu, most of which can be adjusted using the presets (from very low to very high). You will also find several ray-tracing settings here, but they are not affected by the presets (i.e. independent).

One very neat feature is that graphics settings can be changed without requiring a restart. It is also laudable that the game lets you adjust options outside the game (in the launcher) if you wish to.

Benchmark

Because Spider-Man Miles Morales doesn't come with an integrated benchmark, we had to measure frame rates using a sequence that we chose. As you can see in the following video, we made the main character run for around 25 seconds along a wintery street filled with various pedestrians and cars. The frame rates were recorded using the tool CapFrameX. We would consider Miles Morales quite playable if the average frame rate hits 40 FPS or above.

Results

We mainly used devices on loan from XMG (Schenker Technologies) for the benchmarks.

FHD (1,920 x 1,080)

The requirements are neither low nor particularly high when it comes to graphics cards. On the one hand, Intel iGPUs struggle to cope with the game even at 1,280 x 720 and the lowest settings. On the other hand, some entry-level GPUs from Nvidia or AMD (e.g. Radeon 680M) are able to run the game at 1,920 x 1,080 and Low preset. To play the game at Full HD and Medium or High preset, you will need at least a mid-range GPU such as the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti or similar.

QHD (2,560 x 1,440)

Those who want to play Miles Morales at 2,560 x 1,440 and Very High preset will need a GeForce RTX 3060, Radeon RX 6600M or better.

UHD (3,840 x 2,160)

The game definitely requires a high-end GPU at 4K. You will need at least a GeForce RTX 3070 to run the game properly at 3,840 x 2,160 and Very High preset.

Ray-tracing

Spider-Man Miles Morales is similarly demanding at 1,920 x 1,080, Very High preset and with ray-tracing options turned all the way up. Likewise, an RTX 3070 is the minimum requirement for this combination of settings. Interestingly, whilst the Radeon RX 6800M managed to approach the 40 FPS mark, the game stuttered and ran at just 6 FPS on an RX 6600M. None of the Nvidia GPUs saw this level of performance differential between cards, not even the RTX 3050 Ti – a card that otherwise tends to falter massively when handling ray tracing.

Note

Because gaming tests are very time-consuming and are often constrained by installation or activation limits, we are only able to provide you with part of the benchmark results at the time of publishing this article. We will be adding more graphics cards over the coming days and weeks.
