Prey is the newest first person action adventure game from Arkane Studios, built upon a highly optimized version of CryEngine.  Set aboard a space station in an alternate timeline, Prey is a beautiful, smooth running title, with some really cool shape-shifter effects, and an intriguing story line.

Arkane Studios have spent a lot of time working on the PC version of the game, and I’ve been lucky enough to be playing it for a while since it is the first title released under AMD’s large partnership deal announced earlier this year.

Performance looks great across most Radeon RX graphics cards, and with my Ryzen 5 1600X system, you can really push up the settings and resolution.

To play this game at decent settings, the recommended requirements are:

  • OS: Windows 10 64bit
  • Processor: AMD FX 8350 or Intel Core i7 2600K or greater
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Video card: AMD Radeon R9 290 or greater

Testing was done after the basic tutorial and first major story twist occurs.  I wanted to be able to see the shape shifters and integrate them into the testing.


One thing to note is there are a wide variety of options for PC users, including a few different AA settings that can help push performance, if you really need it.  For those of you with widescreen monitors and a RX 580 – this game runs really well. On my new Asus MQ34VQ (3440×1440), I was able to knock down the setting one level to HIGH and still get smooth framerates without FreeSync enabled.  With FreeSync enabled, I was able to enjoy smooth gameplay by switching to Very High settings.

If you are looking for a few extra frame-rates, consider playing with Screen Space Directional Occlusion, and Screen Space Reflections in the Advanced Settings menu.

Here are the recommended settings for 60+ fps across the latest Radeon RX graphics cards.

As always, update to the latest Radeon Software Crimson Edition driver HERE to take advantage of the latest optimizations for Radeon™ graphics cards.

  1. The medium settings recomended for the RX 460, what it means regarding the SSDO option and SSR?
    Half Resolution for both?
