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.

    was there a performance/watt metric anywhere in this article? how many memory controllers on each chip? Reply

    As MT vs ST tests clearly show, there is not enough power and/or memory bandwidth on AM4 for 16 cores anymore.

    Hoping for a 4-channel DDR5 mass-market platform next.

    One 8-core chiplet, one graphics chiplet (similar to 5600 XT, and working together with an additional AMD graphics card), 4 channels of DDR5 to support that, preferably as SODIMM slots right on the CPU package for smallest latency and power consumption possible (and making a cheap MB possible)... I can dream, can I? It should have been this generation, I would have ordered it already.

    Same or better performance than Intel for the same price, with PCIe 4.0 for uber fast drives?
    Where do I sign?
    Bring it on.

    How do you conclude that this product line is superior to Tiger Lake when there are no measurements that compare these two? All the Intel to AMD comparisons are the old Skylake core on 14 nm vs. the latest Zen 3 core on 7 nm. Am I missing something here? Reply

    Is there a reason why the 5800X outperforms both the 5900X and 5950X in some games? Could it have something to do with 1 CCX vs 2 CCXs? Reply
