Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 980 4GB Performance Review
Viewing the performance found on the 7 year old GeForce GTX 980 4GB while playing XCOM 2 we quickly see it can get a very strong 106 FPS. To get that XCOM 2 is benched at High graphics setting and at 1080p.
With such a great performance found in 1080p we step things up to 1440p. Where we still see a solid 58 frame count in Ultra graphics, even on 1440p resolution. Or it could also get 71 FPS on Medium graphics at 4K resolution, if you wanted higher resolution. Based on the GeForce GTX 980 4GB launch price, this would cost $9.48 for each 1440p Ultra frame, or a more reasonable $4.58 per FPS on Medium 1440p.
The optimum resolution for the GeForce GTX 980 4GB here is 1080p, where it can push out reliable frame rates all day at Ultra. Put in to the system the required 8GB system memory and a processor thats as good as the Intel Core i7-4770K 4-Core 3.5GHz and you have a great XCOM 2 experience.
To summarise, GeForce GTX 980 4GB graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what XCOM 2 screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 34 FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 58 FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 76 FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $7.24 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $9.48 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $16.18 per frame.
