Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is an open world tactical shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Paris. It is the tenth installment in the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon franchise and is the first Ghost Recon game to feature an open world environment. The game moves away from the futuristic setting introduced in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter and instead feature a setting similar to the original Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon. Ubisoft described it as one of the biggest open world games that they have ever published, with the game world including a wide variety of environments such as mountains, forests, deserts and salt flats. A modified version of the AnvilNext game engine was used.  The game was released on March 7, 2017 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands was benchmarked with very high image quality settings with Temporal AA and 4x AF. V-Sync and the framerate limit were both disabled and we used the game titles built-in game benchmark.

1080P Benchmark Results: Ghost Recon Wildlands is a pretty tough game title, but with the GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card we were getting nearly 90 FPS on average at 1080P with lows around 75 FPS. The difference in gaming between the two memory kits wasn’t significant as there wasn’t even a full tenth of a second difference between the averages between the two kits. So, there is a huge difference in the memory bandwidth in the synthetic benchmarks, but when gaming normally with the image quality at realistic settings there isn’t going to be a big performance difference.

    TL;DR: complete and total waste of money. Not even 1fps gained. Just get DDR4 2400.

      Getting the bare minimum and not allowing for more headroom is asking for a bottleneck.

        ur an idiot

        • RedRaider

          You are sophomoric. That’s all you got? Childish name-calling?

        • Betty Black

          Yet you resort to name calling? epitome of “irony”

        • RedRaider

          No, it isn’t name-calling, it’s not name-calling if you are sophomoric, which you are as evidenced by your being unable to type “your” and other words, such as “wrecked”, which means my claim has an objective reason, yours is purely subjective. But, based on your sophomoric mental maturity, I don’t necessarily expect you to understand that.

          U used “sophomoric” 12 times, could u be anymore moronic?

    I’ve read that these sticks are using Samsung B-die which up until now were reserved for the 3600MHz+ kits with 8GB DIMMs. Hopefully G.Skill isn’t binning the ICs *too* tightly.

    I can endorse what GSkill support said, my R7 1700 was totally stable at 3.7GHz with RAM at 2133MHz, increasing the RAM even to 2933MHz make it unstable no matter the RAM voltages, after a small increment on CPU Vcore I got it stable at 3.7GHz and RAM at 3200MHz (14-14-14-34).

    Ryzen has been a challenge to get up and running. I am an early adopter, having ordered a vanilla Ryzen 1700 and MSI Carbon Pro. I worked through 4 bios updates and 3 sets of memory before getting a stable setup. I am using the latest 1.4 bios which incorporates the latest AGESA 1.0.0.4a code, and FlareX memory.
    A-XMP profiles 1 and 2 worked flawlessly for me, but I increased the SOC voltage to 1.1v and memory voltages to 1.36v. My cpu is running at 4.00ghz 24/7 at 1.3875vcore and the memory is running at 3200mhz Cas 14. Finally all is well, although I am using Windows high power profile and not the AMD Ryzen profile as I noticed some hitching and pauses in Windows with the AMD profile selected!
