Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising packshot image
The gameplay in Operation Flashpoint is completely open, and objectives are assigned as they would be in real life. For each mission the player will have a defined objective and will be able to choose from available equipment and personnel to allow them to complete the objective however they choose. This choice includes not only what tactics the player can use at the objective but also where they land and how they approach their goal. The only limitation for completion of objectives is based on time. Because the player is part of a cohesive invasion force, command needs objectives completed, and because they affect the ability of the entire force to proceed, certain objectives obviously will need to be completed in a timely manner. This said, it does not appear that time limits will be designed to make players race to complete tasks, but to add to the realism. While the player can lead their squad far afield from the objectives, it is important to realize that the mission is not occurring in a vacuum, there are enemy patrols as well as other battles which the player may encounter when leaving the direct mission area.

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising

GeForce GTX 1060

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 3 year old GeForce GTX 1060 while playing Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising we quickly see it can get a very strong 200+ FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising 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 145 FPS.

With a system housing a graphics card like the GeForce GTX 1060 and some 2GB RAM, we will see a strong 4K Ultra result in Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. Look for a processor like the Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz CPU to go with this setup and Ultra is a sure thing.

To summarise, GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 145 FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 200+ FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $0.78 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $1.02 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $1.72 per frame.
