Wanted to make a thread for this as I think a lot of people would miss it, buried in the UE4 thread.

You might remember Epic's fancy "Elemental" demo for Unreal Engine 4, as shown here. You also might remember the PlayStation 4 build of the demo, seen here, stripped of global illumination (boo!). Well, now that Unreal Engine 4 is available for license holders to play with, the latter demo is too accessible for engine tinkerers to demo.

And for the rest of us, folk have compiled the "Elemental" demo into a standalone package for everybody to crunch on their PC hardware.

Download here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/rb.../Elemental.rar
Note: This isn't an official benchmark release by Epic. This is the Elemental demo included with the UE4 engine package, compiled by users. Ergo, optimisation issues may exist.

How to run: Extract the folder to wherever you desire. Browse to WindowsNoEditor/Elemental/Binaries. Select your operating system folder: Win32 or Win64. Then simply run Elemental.exe
Note: There are no menus to tweak settings. To change resolution, turn off/on vsync, and other stuff, browse to WindowsNoEditor/Elemental/Saved/Config/WindowsNoEditor. Open up GameUserSettings.ini and tweak bUseVSync=False, ResolutionSizeX=1920, and ResolutionSizeY=1080 to whatever settings you desire. The latter two being your horizontal/vertical resolution, the former vsync.

My results (using FRAPS)
CPU: i5 2500K @ 4.3GHz
RAM: 8GB DDR3
GPU: GTX 770 4GB (factory OC'd)

Min fps: 25
Max fps: 61
Avrg fps: 47.1
