At some point you might want to increase your screen size from 1080p to 1440p. Last Year running with this hardware on the larger screen resolution would return 39 FPS at Ultra graphics setting or possibly up to an average of 55 FPS on High settings.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Last Year PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles FIFA 22, Far Cry 6 and Battlefield 2042. Starting with FIFA 22 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 52FPS on Ultra and 72FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Far Cry 6 likely to achieve 52FPS on Ultra and 72FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Battlefield 2042 at Ultra setting we can expect 52 FPS, raising to 72 FPS on High graphics settings.
