Ghost of Tsushima: 35 graphics cards on the grill at TPU!


The Ghost of Tsushima port was released yesterday, so our colleagues at TechpowerUp take a closer look. To measure the game’s performance, 35 graphics cards were put through their paces. They include AMD and NVIDIA GPUs, as well as Intel’s Arc A770 and A750.

How does Ghost of Tsushima run?

Ghost of Tsusima conso VRAM

As far as VRAM consumption is concerned, the game isn’t very greedy after all. Indeed, with details set to maximum, coupled with DLSS or FSR with frame generation, memory consumption reaches 11 GB, 11.7 GB with DLSS. Unlike other recent games, such as Hogwart Legacy, GoT feels very light.

And overall, the game will run quite well on a large number of graphics cards. In 1080p, we can easily reach 60 fps with an AMD RX 7600 or an RTX 4060 8GB. Intel’s Arc A760 also manages to reach this fateful limit.

At 1440p, the game becomes more demanding, but is still accessible. Here, you’ll need an RTX 3070 Ti or an RX 6800 to reach 60 fps. With current-generation cards, this translates into RX 7700 XT or RTX 4070 with 73 FPS on average.

However, in UHD, the situation becomes more difficult, and you’ll have to turn to higher-end cards like an RTX 3090 Ti or an RX 79000 XT, for example.

In any case, the game runs smoothly, so you don’t need a very large GPU to play it. What’s more, Intel’s DLSS, FSR and XeSS are integrated to give you a little boost when you need it.
