Other Popular Game 1080p 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 Beholder 2 at 1440p would be pulling in about 67 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 48 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Beholder 2 PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Resident Evil 8, Back 4 Blood and Far Cry 6. Starting with Resident Evil 8 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 63FPS on Ultra and 88FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Back 4 Blood likely to achieve 63FPS on Ultra and 88FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Far Cry 6 at Ultra setting we can expect 63 FPS, raising to 88 FPS on High graphics settings.
