Does Saints Row IV have what it takes to stress modern hardware?

[H]ard|OCP lined up five GPUs from the two competitors to see if Saints Row can benefit from serious GPU power.  They set the performance bar at an average of 40fps and raised the graphics options as high as they could while staying above that target frame rate.  For the high end GPUs 2560x1600 was playable at the highest settings though the mid-range cards needed to be reduced to 1920x1080 to remain playable except for the 7870 Gigahertz Edition which retained the higher resolution.  As you can guess from the fact that even a 650Ti or 7790 can max out the graphics options there is not much new in this game from a quality perspective and it really does not stress modern GPUs.  You can have fun playing it but don't expect jaw dropping scenery.

We dissect image quality in great detail and find out if this is a game we expect to see in 2013, or if it falls flat on its face in the innovation department."
