Anthem Finally playable 4K 60 FPS Max settings with new 30 series cards

We enjoyed Anthem when it first released and feel it’s perhaps underappreciated. Not only does it play well, but looks fantastic to boot. We recently dived-in again to test the performance using an RTX 3090 and can safely say the game now runs using max settings and 4K with a solid 60 fps. We expect the 3080 also to run this at 4K60. Previously our RTX 2080 Ti struggled to maintain this preferred frame rate and dipped into the 40s quite often during intense moments. Interestingly, BioWare are planning a revamp for this game (Anthem 2.0) at some point which addresses the complaints players had with the game’s systems. We expect that to release next year if we’re hazarding a guess. It will also be interesting if a lot more players dive-in this November when EA’s Origin becomes part of Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass. Just an FYI, the video recorded has HDR enabled, so the colours might not look correct on your display. Although we tested this and the video still looks great without HDR enabled on our display.
