Serious Sam 3: Before First Encounter is an upcoming first-person shooter video game in development by Croteam. It will be the latest game in the Serious Sam series and a prequel to the original game, Serious Sam: The First Encounter. Serious Sam 3: BFE will be set in Egypt and feature a 16-player co-operative campaign mode. The game is set for release in Q3 2011 on PC and unspecified consoles. Thus far, the only logical interpretation of "BFE" has been "Before First Encounter"; given the fact "Serious Sam Stone" was sent back in time through the Time Lock to destroy the evil sent by Mental. Considering the setting is based on Earth, it would only make sense that the events unraveling in Serious Sam 3, are those that brought Serious Sam to the "First Encounter" in the first place.

Serious Sam 3

GeForce GTX 1060

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old GeForce GTX 1060 while playing Serious Sam 3 we quickly see it can get a very strong 168 FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to Serious Sam 3 rec requirements, it would make more sense if you pushed it up to 1440p or 4K, where even at Ultra 4K graphics settings the GeForce GTX 1060 will still get a solid 55 FPS.

To summarise, GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Serious Sam 3 screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 55 FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 92 FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 120 FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $2.08 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $2.71 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $4.53 per frame.
