Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today.

These were, Low: 44 FPS, Medium: 35 FPS, High: 23 FPS and Ultra: 17 FPS. We then checked out Battlefield 2042 which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 7FPS, M: 6FPS, H: 4FPS, U: 3FPS. And another popular game was Far Cry 6 that returned L: 31FPS, M: 25FPS, H: 17FPS, U: 12FPS at 1440p.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition Performance Review

The GeForce GTX 770 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2022 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 770 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. The GeForce GTX 770 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 252 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a playable frame rate from Star Citizen with 33 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Grand Theft Auto VI which is predicted to return a weak 0 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Days Gone which we saw getting a playable 28 FPS.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the GeForce GTX 770 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition will run the upcoming game Star Citizen to a playable performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 65 FPS, Medium: 52 FPS, High: 35 FPS and Ultra: 25 FPS. Another game researched was Grand Theft Auto VI with predictions of L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Days Gone, which returned L: 56FPS, M: 44FPS, H: 30FPS, U: 21FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 770 Palit JetStream 2GB Edition we get the impression that it is not ideal and its more advisable to run modern games at 1080p resolution. But if you really want to play games at 1440p then you will likely have to make some graphical adjustments to improve game FPS stability.
