RoboCop: Rogue City is out on PC, bringing a much-loved comic book character to high-end PCs and consoles. We tested the game using the latest graphics drivers across several modern graphics cards and got the below results. RoboCop is built atop Unreal Engine 5 and features Lumen in the form of real-time reflections. Although there’s no hardware ray tracing, DLSS 2 and 3 and AMD FSR 2.2 are available to boost frame rates on GeForce and Radeon cards, respectively.

- Memory: 16GB x2 @6000MT/s CL38.
- PSU: Corsair RM1000E.
- RTX 4090.
- RX 7900 XTX.
- RX 7900 XT.
RoboCop: Rogue City GPU Benchmarks
At 1080p, we see the Radeon RX 7900 XTX perform relatively close to the NVIDIA RTX 4090. It averages 130.2 FPS, 5-6% slower than the RTX 4090, with similar lows. The RX 7900 XT isn’t that far behind either, with 1% lows of 86.6 FPS. The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti stays ahead of the RX 6800 XT with an average of 90 FPS and 74 FPS lows.
Looking at the lows, the Radeon RX 7900 XTX offers a smoother experience than the RTX 4090, at least at 1080p. I reckon this has to do with the larger L3 cache on the RDNA 3 flagship, which is sufficient for low resolutions.
At 1440p, the GeForce RTX 4090 distinguishes itself with a lead of 20% over the Radeon RX 7900 XTX. The RX 7900 XT averages 79 FPS, 12% lower than the 7900 XTX, while the RTX 3080 Ti continues to lead the RX 6800 XT with an average of 64 FPS.
Ultra HD or 4K is usually completely GPU-bound. Here, we see the RTX 4090 extend its lead over the RX 7900 XTX to 37% with substantially higher lows (51 FPS vs. 37 FPS). The RX 7900 XT maintains the same delta versus the 7900 XTX, while the RTX 3080 Ti performs increasingly faster than the RX 6800 XT.
The frametime and variance graph indicates that the RTX 4090 is the best-performing GPU, followed by the RX 7900 XTX and the 7900 XT.
GPU Busy Times and Power
RoboCop: Rogue City is completely GPU-bound at 1080p and 1440p but experiences short bursts of CPU-bound times at 4K. This behavior is only replicable on the RTX 4090, while the rest of the GPUs produce completely GPU-bound graphs.
Looking at the power consumption, the GeForce RTX 4090 is far from its 450W limit, averaging 357W, nearly the same as the 7900 XTX. The RX 7900 XT draws 308W on average, making it notably more efficient than the RTX 3080 Ti.
