Deathloop Technical Review: Guns, Groundhogs, and Graphics

GreenPower reports the financial results for the fourth quarter of 2021

Still, we need to ask how well Deathloop performs under the hood, as well as whether the graphics, controls, and other technical facets are up to snuff. Of course, to kick off our Deathloop PC technical review, we’ll start with the system requirements.

Deathloop is almost here. The zany action game where your character is stuck in a temporal loop will officially launch tomorrow. Your journey as Colt is fraught with danger as enemies, including the Visionaries and one deadly assassin, are out to get you. It’s Groundhog Day with gunplay and powers. What more do you want?

  • Deathloop – System requirements

GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060 (6GB) or AMD Radeon RX 580 (8GB)


CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K @ 3.60GHz or AMD Ryzen 7 2700X


GPU: Nvidia RTX 2060 (6GB) or AMD Radeon RX 5700 (8GB) Deathloop‘s system requirements come from the official website. Funnily enough, the recommended specs for 60 fps @ 4K resolution with the Ultra settings selected match what I have for my rig.

For the advanced graphics settings, there are several presets: very low, low, medium, high, very high, and ultra. It’s also possible to pick auto so the game adjusts the settings accordingly based on your specs. Moreover, you’ll notice detail options for textures, models, water, shadows, and terrain. Likewise, there are options for bloom, lens flare, depth of field, sharpness, motion blur, and light shafts. Also, for ambient occlusion, you’ll see FidelityFX CACAO Performance/Balanced/Quality, Raytraced Performance/Quality, and Nvidia HBAO+.
