PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Project RIP

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running Project RIP at around 79 average frames per second, on 1080p screen resolution. This should be achieved on ultra graphics settings. If you turn a few graphics options down we expect around 110 FPS at high graphics.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Project RIP would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 60 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 84 FPS.
