EA Sports FC 24 Benchmarks & PC Performance Analysis

Electronic Arts has released its latest soccer game, EA Sports FC 24, on PC. Powered by the Frostbite Engine, it’s time now to benchmark it and examine its performance on the PC.

For our EA Sports FC 24 benchmarks and PC Performance Analysis, we used an AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D, 32GB of DDR5 at 6000Mhz, AMD’s Radeon RX580, RX Vega 64,  RX 6900XT, RX 7900XTX, NVIDIA’s GTX980Ti, RTX 2080Ti, RTX 3080 and RTX 4090. We also used Windows 10 64-bit, as well as the GeForce 537.58 and AMD Adrenalin Edition 23.10.1 drivers.

EA has included very few graphics settings to tweak. PC gamers can adjust the quality of Rendering, Grass and Crowd. And… well… that’s it. There is also an option for Hair Strands, and the game supports uncapped framerates and full framerate cut-scenes on PC. There is no support for any PC upscaling tech (DLSS, FSR or XeSS) and there aren’t any Ray Tracing effects.

Now the reason our PC Performance Analysis for EA Sports FC 24 was a bit delayed is because the game uses Denuvo and EA’s App. The EA App will lock you out for 24 hours after five hardware changes (whether it’s a CPU or GPU change). This is also another reason why we don’t have any CPU benchmarks for EA Sports FC 24. As you’ll see, though, you won’t need a really high-end CPU to achieve framerates higher than 100fps. Moreover, since EA Sports FC 24 does not feature any built-in benchmark tool, we’ve used a custom test. So, for our tests, we measured the game’s in-game performance using the Classic Camera (we did not use the more demanding cut-scenes). So, our EA Sports FC 24 benchmarks will give you a pretty good idea of how the actual game will run on your PC system.

At 1080p/Max Settings, all of our GPUs were able to offer average framerates higher than 60fps. Yes yes, even the dated AMD Radeon RX580 was able to push a minimum of 61fps. The NVIDIA RTX4090 was also able to push a minimum of 332fps. As such, we can safely say that EA Sports FC 24 is mostly a GPU-bound title.

At 1440p/Max Settings, most of our GPUs were able to provide high framerates. Our NVIDIA GTX980Ti was also able to offer an acceptable performance, provided you have a G-Sync Monitor. As for Native 4K/Max Settings, our top five GPUs had no trouble at all running it. We should also note that the game was constantly crashing on the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 at 4K.

Graphics-wise, EA Sports FC 24 is the best-looking soccer game. EA has added a cool new grass effect, and the lighting looks better than its predecessor. And, for those wondering, EA Sports FC 24 looks better than Konami’s eFootball 2024. As our benchmarks showcase, EA Sports FC 24 will run on a wide range of PC configurations. Thus, it’s a shame that the team did not try to implement any Ray Tracing (or even Path Tracing) effects. This doesn’t surprise us of course as EA Sports has been treating the PC as a second-class (or should I say third-class) citizen.

All in all, EA Sports FC 24 runs with high framerates on a wide range of PC configurations. It’s a well-optimized PC game, but at the same time, it does not offer mind-blowing or next-gen graphics. The only downsides here are the lack of any PC-only features and some really annoying stutters that can occur during replays/cut-scenes. My guess is that these are shader compilation stutters. Thankfully, there aren’t any stutters while playing the game, so that’s at least a relief.
