    Have framerates improved at all since launch? Can’t seen to find any post patch comparisons.

    It was smooth for me on a Ryzen 5 1600 w/16 GB 3200 and an RX580.

    My CPU is clocked to 3.9Ghz, but that's about it. Ran great at 1920x1080.

    From reading various posts, the performance are the same but now you have more chance to achieve the standard performance.

    Some people still beleaguered with crippling performance bugs tho

    Yes this is my impression too. I'm not sure performance was every really a major issue, but the performance outliers and bugs were. For my part I'm running at max settings 1440p at a completely locked 30fps on the 1070. No issues at all.

    A 1080 was just barely fast enough to play at a solid 1080p/60 console settings. I consider that to be very poor performance.

    I'm not sure where you got that idea from. Even the 1060 is fast enough to play the game at 1080p/60 at the original preset:

    The built in benchmark has greatly inflated performance relative to actual gameplay.

    https://www.computerbase.de/2020-08/horizon-zero-dawn-benchmark-test/2/

    Original preset scales about 30%~ faster on NV GPUs. That puts a 1080 at 67fps average at 1080p. Here's an example of how unrepresentative the benchmark is.




    Digital Foundry also discusses the performance problems.

    No problems on a 7870/920 8gb system (console settings).

    Sure, as long as you just watch the benchmark and don't actually play the game.

    RPS already addressed the gameplay vs benchmark difference and it's nowhere near 30% on the 1060FE:

    I think a 1060 being able to double the PS4's framerate at the same resolution and slightly better settings (the PC version has some graphical flares that the PS4 lacks even at the original present) can be considered reasonable performance given that according to TPU's DB it's barely more than 2x faster at 1080p.

    Some users have indeed experienced strange performance issues - at least with earlier unpatched versions of the game, and Digital Foundry definitely appears to be one of those. But many did not experience those issues and I'm not even sure if they're still present with the latest patches.

    Regarding the GTX1080, here's a video of it running in game at 82fps at console settings/1080p:



    That's vsynced to 82fps - so the average will be higher.

    RPS benchmark is really different to my experience for 1440p

    they say this for GTX 1660

    im using GTX 1660 Super and only goes 30-40 fps at 1440p on medium.

    maybe this game is CPU heavy? Because im using 4.1 GHz Zen+ and for most games, i usually have round 5 fps lower performance compared to benchmarks done by youtubers and news websites. I suspect for more cpu heavy games i'll get ~10 fps penalty.

    I think Digital Foundry mentioned an issue with resolutions not always applying correctly when changed through the in game menu (or something to that effect). I wonder if the RPS benchmark fell foul of that at 1440p? The difference between 1080p and 1440p doesn't seem big enough in their benchmark for the increase in resolution. It's almost as if it's still running at 1080p. Their 1080p benchmark for your GPU is roughly in line with what Toms is saying (Toms actually puts it about13% faster but they're using a faster CPU) but unfortunately Toms doesn't give a 1440p equivalent comparison point. They do give 1440p at Ultra settings though which gives 35-44fps in the benchmark which probably isn't too far away from you 30-40 in game given you're running a slower CPU too.

    So I'd probably say you're right were you should be in performance terms.

    I'm running a pretty solid 50-60fps on my rig in actual gameplay, and I've played it through twice now since the bonus DLC came out.

    1080p, 8GB RX 580. It does use about 4.6GB of my GPUs ram, so cards under 4 may have problems.

    Yes the game is very inconsistent, for some theres no problems on 2012 hardware, for some the game runs shit on a GTX1080 zen equipped system.

    How long till they re-jiggle their wiggles and put out an upgraded PS5 version?
