Area 51 packshot image
An unknown virus has been released inside Area 51, and Team Bravo has been assigned to clean it up. Once inside, the team discovers that the virus turns people into murderous mutants, and anyone killed by a mutant turns into a mutant themselves. As the game progresses, members of Team Bravo (and soldiers Ethan meets) are killed one by one by mutants, until only Ethan Cole, the player character, is left alive. Ethan is later bitten by a mutant, slowly turning him into a mutant.rnrn

Area 51

GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q Performance Review

We can see that when playing Area 51 with a GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q will get a very strong 200+ FPS. That base FPS is at 1080p and High visual settings.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to Area 51 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 RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q will still get a solid 200+ FPS.

With a system housing a graphics card like the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q and some 0.512GB RAM, we will see a strong 4K Ultra result in Area 51.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Area 51 at, because you can get 200+ FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 200+ frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 200+ FPS at 1080p Ultra.
