Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, what performances?


Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is Ubisoft’s latest title. As we saw earlier, the configuration required to run the game is pretty substantial, but what does it actually do in real-life conditions? TechpowerUp gives us the answer in its performance test!

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is still greedy!

Avatar: Frontiers of pandora consommation VRAM

So we start with the VRAM consumption measurement, and the game isn’t the lightest. With graphics parameters set to minimum, the game consumes 10.5 GB at 1600×900. The higher the resolution, the greater the amount of memory required: 13 GB in UHD, details in low. If we push the game to ultra, we reach 12.1 GB of memory consumed in 1080p, 13.2 GB in QHD and 15.3 GB in UHD.

The smaller RTX 4060 series and other RX 7600s are likely to struggle with their 8 GB of memory.

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora performances 1080p

As for performance, you’ll need a rather muscular card: in 1080p, with full detail, you’ll need an RTX 3070 Ti to hope to play at 60 FPS. Otherwise, the RTX 4060 Ti 8GB delivers 59.7 FPS, while the non-Ti drops to 43 FPS. On the AMD side, the RX 7700 XT and RX 7800 XT hover around 60 FPS. Further down the line, we have the older 6800 and 6700 XT at 56.4 FPS and 45.6 FPS respectively. Finally, if you have an Intel card, you’ll need to consider lowering the visual quality of the game, since an Arc A770 is 41.2 FPS.

At higher resolutions, to reach 60 FPS, you’ll need to arm yourself with RTX 3090/RX 7900 XT for QHD gaming. In UHD, only the RTX 4090 is capable of 60 FPS. So there’s a good chance you’ll have to reduce visual quality if you’re playing beyond 1920×1080.
