With the open beta for Call of Duty Vanguard kicking off, the WePC benchmarking team has been busying itself with testing out the game on all the video cards that are lying about the office, seeing which of them can handle Call of Duty Vanguard’s highest graphical settings the best. Whether you just want to see some high frame rate FPS action, some dubious in-game talent, or which GPU performs best at 1440p, simply check out the CoD Vanguard benchmark video below.
Which engine does Call of Duty Vanguard use?
Call of Duty Vanguard is based on the Warzone engine, which debuted in 2019’s Modern Warfare. The tech came into its own with the release of Call of Duty Warzone in 2020, and continues to evolve alongside its Battle Royale namesake.
Curiously, 2020’s CoD episode, Black Ops – Cold War, relied on the old Blops tech, which caused a few problems when Cold War content was released into Warzone this time last year. With Vanguard and Warzone more in sync, there should be no such issues this time around. We hope.
Call of Duty Vanguard beta performance
The other benefit of Vanguard relying on the Warzone engine is that the engine is pretty well optimized after three years on the gaming front lines. As you can see in the video above, a mid-range graphics card should have no issues facilitating a good gameplay performance, certainly at 1080p.
Of course, we won’t know for sure until the full Call of Duty Vanguatf experience is released on November 5. Rest assured that went the time comes, the WePC benchmarking team will be putting the game through its paces – while racking up another negative K/D ratio..
