Naz Posted July 30, 2022 Share Posted July 30, 2022 I haven't been keeping up on the last several updates since there was nothing in the patch notes to indicate anything would be significantly different performance wise. There was a couple items that may make a difference so i've ran some benchmarks to determine where performance is currently with A20.5. Noticed a20.6 came out in experimental yesterday, figures an update would come while i was almost finished xd however it's mostly all bug fixes so probably won't have any significant difference. My Other 7DTD Benchmarks Spoiler Alpha 20 A20.5 benchmarks A20.1 Trident benchmarks A20.0 2 systems benchmarks Alpha 19 Spoiler A19 Various Performance Tweaks Benchmarked A19.3>A19.4>A19.5 Hotbox Benchmarks Resizable Bar Trident Benchmarks A19 RTX 3090 Trident Benchmarks A19.2 B3 Hotbox Benchmarks A19.0 Benchmarks 2 Systems Intel,AMD,SLI,Core Count And SMT Tested A15 Trident Benchmarks Benchmark Notes & Disclaimers Spoiler 1. These figures should be taken as ball park figures and not absolute values. 7DTD is a very difficult game to benchmark accurately. It's in alpha and sometimes does weird things. Also some things are difficult to account for such as the AI, they will behave differently and spawn differently every run, which leads to #2. 2. What's controlled for and what's not I haven't controlled for driver versions & windows versions. My goal was just to get "close enough" results instead of 100% accurate as possible. That said i have controlled for memory leaks, restarting the game after every run. Time of day is reset from the console after every run. When changing resolution i changed ingame before shutting down then validated with the unity screen selector on next launch. No zombies/animals where killed so areas weren't "cleared" until x amount of days, to insure that on following runs they would respawn (Although i can't do much if zombies kill animals or vise versa etc). I only did 1 pass on each test, however any result that didn't look right or didn't make sense was discarded and retested. 3. 1 system isn't enough to draw definitive conclusions for every configuration. The conclusions found here may or may not apply to your own systems, these results are only really comparable if you have similar hardware. But they will however give an idea of where the current performance is at with the hardware that was tested. 4. It's Alpha Any update could change any conclusions drawn from these tests. Also as a work in progress things are always improving and getting worse, by the time 7DTD goes gold these results with be obsolete and invalid. Things are always changing in alpha. 5. Tests on different resolutions were done on monitors native aspect ratio 16:9 Resolutions were tested on an Asus PB287Q 4K 3840x2160 60HZ Monitor 21:9 Resolution was tested on an LG 38GL950G 3840x1600 175Hz Monitor 6. The benchmark Run I've been using the same run since A14 for all tests, you can find more details on the exact run in my a15 benchmarks i did ages ago Here 7. These results are without applies affinity and increased view distance.

Spoiler A20.5 VS A20.0 Ultra Settings A20.5 VS A20.0 Lower Settings Conclusions Pretty much no meaningfully difference in performance, it may be slightly worse if anything. That's unfortunate however i totally understand why that is the case, a20 has probably been shoved onto the stage before it was truly ready and tfp have been trying to fix the issues after the fact. This unfortunately would ,mean they probably haven't had time to work on any meaningful optimisations as presumably all their time has been spend bug fixing. This is of course speculation based on my observations so take it for what you will. Hopefully we can see some more substantial gains being made in a21 (assuming another steam sale event doesn't catch tfp's eye before it's ready😄 ) 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
