Garry's Mod (officially abbreviated to GMod) is a sandbox physics game that allows the player to manipulate objects and experiment with physics using the Source engine. Garry's Mod has been available on Steam's content delivery service since November 29, 2006. rnDespite being a standalone game, Garry's Mod requires the user to own at least one game on Steam based on the Source engine, such as Half-Life 2, Counter-Strike: Source, Portal 2, or Team Fortress 2. It is also commonly used for the creation and publishing of videos on YouTube, mainly from Team Fortress 2, Half-Life 2, Portal and Left 4 Dead.

Garrys Mod

GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W Performance Review

Booting up Garrys Mod with the 3 year old GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W looks like it will return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

And so following those results you could of course play this at 1080p, but this GPU is somewhat wasted at that resolution. We would suggest running Garrys Mod at 4K Ultra instead, where the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W would still get 200+ FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $0 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0 at 1440p Ultra.

This is a powerful graphics card for Garrys Mod and we can certainly recommend it to deliver 4K screen res at ultra settings. Get a system with at least 1GB of RAM though. The PC’s processor would also want to be around the Intel Core i7-9850H 6-Core 2.6GHz’s performance to get a smooth experience.

To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W solution can play Garrys Mod at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 200+ frame rate, whereby we see 200+ frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 200+ frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.
