Rise of Nations: Gold Edition

GeForce GTX 980 4GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 980 4GB Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 7 year old GeForce GTX 980 4GB while playing Rise of Nations: Gold Edition we quickly see it can get a very strong 200+ FPS. To get that Rise of Nations: Gold Edition is benched at High graphics setting and at 1080p.

But then the GeForce GTX 980 4GB will get a solid big screen performance at 4K, with 200+ frames per second. So we expect you are likely to consider running the game in 4K or 1440p. If you are interested, this is a cost of $0.08 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

This graphics card, paired with at least 0.512GB system memory and a suitable processor, like the Intel Core i7-4770K 4-Core 3.5GHz would be perfect to run this game at 4K Ultra.

To summarise, GeForce GTX 980 4GB graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Rise of Nations: Gold Edition screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 200+ 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 $0.03 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $0.05 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $0.08 per frame.
