Gaming Tests: Chernobylite

Despite the advent of recent TV shows like Chernobyl, recreating the situation revolving around the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster, the concept of nuclear fallout and the town of Pripyat have been popular settings for a number of games – mostly first person shooters. Chernobylite is an indie title that plays on a science-fiction survival horror experience and uses a 3D-scanned recreation of the real Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. It involves challenging combat, a mix of free exploration with crafting and non-linear story telling. While still in early access, it is already picking up plenty of awards.

I picked up Chernobylite while still in early access, and was impressed by its in-game benchmark, showcasing complex building structure with plenty of trees and structures where aliasing becomes important. The in-game benchmark is an on-rails experience through the scenery, covering both indoor and outdoor scenes – it ends up being very CPU limited in the way it is designed. We have taken an offline version of Chernobylite to use in our tests, and we are testing the following settings combinations:

  • 360p Low, 1440p Low, 4K Low, 1080p Max

We do as many runs within 10 minutes per resolution/setting combination, and then take averages.

All of our benchmark results can also be found in our benchmark engine, Bench.

    It's nothing compared to the price premiums Intel used to charge for their performance leadership. Reply

    You might want to rethink what you've just claimed.. and I'm very confused why you would think 5950x is worth it unless you absolutely need the extra cores for work. Its $750 MSRP compared to $550 🤦‍♂️. I'm curious why you say otherwise because every Intel 10th gen-11th gen chip have been duds really.

    The 5900x is a steal for it's price and is a killer chip. The price hike means nothing because the 3900x was 499 when it came out.

    Not just in price/performance this time, in performance period. Reply

    Yeah, probably Intel server Reply

    Just my $0.02 as a sysadmin, it's likely a limited bandwidth issue, not server access/drive IOPS. Reply

    Wishful thinking. That's like a Bulldog trying to eat a Great Dane. Reply

    Er, TSMC’s market cap is double Intel’s. Reply
