Having a blast. 4K HDR 60+ fps no problem on my 3060 Ti.

Playing on the hard difficulty and the enemies feel like damage sponges. That’s my only knock on it so far. Beyond that, I love the look and feel. Retrieving your axe after throwing it is insanely satisfying. The audio (design / sound track) is fantastic too.

I’m really glad Playstation/Sony are acknowledging the value of bringing their brands to PC. Not only that but also porting them with all the bells and whistles. No weird compromises or bottlenecking.

Odd note but it was a little funny to realize I was playing GoW with an Xbox controller.

What settings are you running to do 60 fps at 4k on a 3060ti?

I started playing it this morning. I tried out HDR on my ASUS PG329Q for the first time with this game. It looked so good I went back and tried horizon zero dawn in HDR and it looks amazing.
To be honest I am finding some of the enemies pretty tuff, the fast guy with the tattoos near the start was very frustrating.
I guess my twitch reflexes are not what they once were. :cry::oops::D

I did “High” on everything, “Ultra” reflections. Quality DLSS (1440p).

Playing with Steam Big Picture so I can’t see the framerate but its +60fps for sure.

I think the steam in game fps counter should work in big picture more.

It doesn’t. I can download Fraps or play the game without big screen mode and let you know.

Post a screenshot of your settings also maybe helpful for others on the same GPU.

Additional context:
  • First boss in the game... no real spoilers here.
  • Log is 300 seconds. I died once about 80 seconds into the battle (large spike is loading screen).
  • Using Gsync with LG TV.
  • Screenshots don't capture HDR metadata. That's why they're lacking colour. See cellphone photo as example of real life quality.
  • 3060 Ti UV settings are in sig / unofficial 3060 Ti thread here.

Honestly, who uses fraps in 2022?

Afterburner is superior.
I have MSI afterburner for my undervolt but the overlay (and logging) does not work on my system. I’ve tried to reset to default settings, rebind the toggle, and reinstalled the software but no luck. I haven’t used fraps in years but… it simply works.

I can also just ‘not’ run the game in Big Screen mode and the built in frame counter will work.

If anything, im going to try that software the OP shared to log framtime.

I havent even played this game yet. Glad it is on PC. Instead of playing on PS5 I will play on PC. Wish I did the same with RDR2.

Played the first couple of hours today on a 3080 Ti / AW38" Ultrawide / 3840x1600 all ULTRA settings with DLSS "Quality" setting as opposed to 1:1 non DLSS. I personally found the DLSS "Quality" setting to give better sharpness to textures and the FPS boost was around +15 to 20FPS on average. Other users I've spoken with report the opposite.

Overall, I am totally pleased with the port and the work Sony's team did on it ... especially the UW support. I also played a good bit on my LG C1 48" and other than the obviously better contrast and HDR, didn't find it overwhelmingly better than the Alienware 38" Ultrawide so most of my time was spent on the AW. An interesting thing that was when playing on the LG C1 4K, I could also chose to play at 21:9 aspect ratio which perfectly replicated the UW experience and the perfect black of the upper and lower black bars made it feel very natural. Just like a larger AW UW but with OLED and really top notch HDR ... though I had to do some extensive tweaking on the HDR settings with the C1 (lowered default of 50/50 to about 35/38 with the HDR slider so the image wasn't so dark).

Here's about 20 minutes from earlier today on the 3840x1600 Alienware 38":

Thanks for that. I've been wanting to find an app like this to add to the toolbox.
