It’s been seven years since the last Quake game and id Software is back in a big way with Quake Champions. Paying homage to the original Quake games, Quake Champions is a fast-paced arena style FPS that keep you on your toes at all times.
The game has a current roster of eleven unique champions and it continues to grow. Each champion has a unique ability and characteristics for competitors of all playstyles. If you prefer agility in the arena, try out Slash or Nyx. If you prefer a beefy enforcer, Scalebearer or Clutch may be the champion for you.
Performance looks great on the Radeon™ RX Series products. I was able to push above 100 FPS at various resolutions and quality settings with all of our gaming graphics cards paired with my AMD Ryzen 7 1700X system.
Recommended System Requirements:
- CPU: AMD A10-7870K or Intel i5-2400
- RAM: 8 GB
- OS: Windows 7 and later
- Video Card: Radeon™ R9 390X or higher
I tested the game in live team Deathmatch battles as Nyx with our exclusive Radeon Ruby skin that is available to those who purchase a Radeon™ RX 580, 570,560 graphics card or Ryzen™ 5 or Ryzen™ 7 processor from participating retailers.
One thing to note are the minimum framerates I saw when testing each of the cards. Even in the chaotic arena with eight people, minimum framerates stayed above 60 fps. I didn’t run into any stuttering or graphical hitches. Quake Champions is the fastest and most responsive shooter I’ve played. It is a true test of your FPS ability and there is no room for error or graphical glitches. A fraction of a second determines if you frag your opponent or get fragged.
For serious gamers, I highly recommend a 144Hz display with Radeon™ FreeSync technology to help ensure you have a competitive edge over your opponents by having a smoother and responsive experience.
Settings below are what I used to achieve 100+ fps on my AMD Ryzen 7 1700X based system. Auto Detect Settings changes the resolution scaling which has a significant impact to fps. If you’re looking to tweak performance be sure to experiment with both the resolution scale and graphics quality.
