This is so we can select the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz that has the best price to performance position today, at $157.5.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Etherborn

This PC build has been optimized to deliver around 18 FPS at Ultra settings for Etherborn, while running on a 1080p screen size. While you might want to increase this to 25 FPS if you lower some of the graphics options inline with High graphics settings.

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 Etherborn at 1440p would be pulling in about 19 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 13 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

While we have put a great PC build together for Etherborn it’s important to understand how it handles some of the more popular games of today at 1080p. With this PC build we can expect that the popular game FIFA 22 will get 18FPS on Ultra settings raising to 25FPS on High. On the other hand we see that Star Citizen returns 18FPS on Ultra and 25FPS when lowered to High. Lastly Dying Light 2 may see 18 FPS running at Ultra, and 25 on High graphics settings.
