PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Mad Max

This computer setup should be looking at getting 56 FPS on Ultra graphics at the 1080p screen size in Mad Max. We expect with a few tweaks to the settings this gaming PC will also get around 78 FPS at High settings, which will give you some frame rate performance to play around with.

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Mad Max at 1440p would be pulling in about 60 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 43 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Mad Max PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Days Gone, Grand Theft Auto VI and FIFA 22. Starting with Days Gone we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 56FPS on Ultra and 78FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Grand Theft Auto VI likely to achieve 56FPS on Ultra and 78FPS when reduced to High.
