Ghost Recon Breakpoint system requirements, settings, benchmarks, and performance analysis


Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a bit of a perplexing game. The latest installment of the series feels less like Ghost Recon and more like yet another take on an open world Ubisoft game full of microtransactions. It's not just the world and the game mechanics that feel familiar, however. The AnvilNext 2. 0 engine is back, with a few tweaks that, oddly enough, make the game run quite a bit faster at maximum quality compared to Ghost Recon Wildlands. 4K ultra at more than 60 fps is actually possible, though it still requires a powerful graphics card.

Also typical of AnvilNext 2. 0 is that CPU requirements are higher than in other games, and while officially you only need a Ryzen 3 1200 or Core i5-4460, you're not going to get anywhere near 144 fps with such a processor—and even 60 fps is going to be a stretch. Minimum fps is definitely a concern, and if you like buttery smooth framerates, a FreeSync or G-Sync compatible gaming monitor is highly recommended. If your PC hardware is looking a bit long in the tooth, whether for Ghost Recon Breakpoint or some other game, stay on the lookout for some good Black Friday deals. But let's get back to Breakpoint.
