Pioneer is a space adventure game set in our galaxy at the turn of the 31st century.
The game is open-ended, and you are free to eke out whatever kind of space-faring existence you can think of. Look for fame or fortune by exploring the millions of star systems. Turn to a life of crime as a pirate, smuggler or bounty hunter. Forge and break alliances with the various factions fighting for power, freedom or self-determination. The universe is whatever you make of it.
Pioneer is under constant development and has a friendly community of players, modders and developers around it. We release a new version almost every day. We'd love for you to try it and make part of the galaxy your own!

Pioneer

GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q Performance Review

Playing Pioneer on the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q, which is a 3 year old graphics card will likely 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 Pioneer at 4K Ultra instead, where the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q 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 Pioneer and we can certainly recommend it to deliver 4K screen res at ultra settings. Get a system with at least 2GB 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, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding Pioneer frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 200+ FPS, 1440p will get 200+ frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 200+ FPS. Based around the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $0, 1440p frames cost $0 each and then the 4K costs $0 per frame.
