PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on Phoenix Point

This computer setup should be looking at getting 48 FPS on Ultra graphics at the 1440p screen size in Phoenix Point. We expect with a few tweaks to the settings this gaming PC will also get around 67 FPS at High settings, which will give you some frame rate performance to play around with.

Other Popular Game 1440p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Phoenix Point at 4k would be pulling in about 40 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 28 if you were playing it at 4k Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Phoenix Point PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Star Citizen, FIFA 22 and Grand Theft Auto VI. Starting with Star Citizen we can see that at 1440p we are likely to see 48FPS on Ultra and 67FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see FIFA 22 likely to achieve 48FPS on Ultra and 67FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Grand Theft Auto VI at Ultra setting we can expect 48 FPS, raising to 67 FPS on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Phoenix Point

The , Strategy, Management, Turn-based genre means that we would be looking for our build’s mouse selection to be of higher quality than normal, so we have chosen the Cooler Master MM710 as the best mouse option based on today’s prices versus gamer quality.

An Alternative Phoenix Point Graphics Card Option for 1440p

Not everyone is interested in going with a Nvidia card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB instead, which comes with a 7% better performance adjustment when compared to GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $899.98 at the moment.
