Rift is a MMORPG set in a fantasy world called Telara, which is the focal point of several different elemental Planes. These Planes are realities representing the elemental forces of Air, Fire, Water, Earth, Life, and Death, and it is at the one point where every one of these Planes intersect with each other that Telara exists. Each Plane is governed by a Dragon-deity, which is the personification of that elemental force. Through the actions of the Dragon of Extinction, Regulos, the various Dragons have united in an alliance known as the Blood Storm, for the purpose of invading Telara and gaining use of the intersection of all of their realms. In the past, the Blood Storm was defeated by the inhabitants of Telara with the help of the Vigil, the most powerful of the native gods of Telara.
We used the above in game settings to benchmark Rift
As we ran through the Guardian city of Sanctum we were let down that there wasn’t more performance to be found. As this is always the most difficult area to navigate we wanted to see if a faster video card would help. Clearly, this being an MMO shows just how CPU limited these powerful cards are.
