Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1080 Performance Review
Viewing the performance found on the 5 year old GeForce GTX 1080 while playing XCOM 2 we quickly see it can get a very strong 153 FPS. To get that XCOM 2 is benched at High graphics setting and at 1080p.
But then the GeForce GTX 1080 will get a solid big screen performance at 4K, with 50 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 $14.00 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.
Definitely run XCOM 2 at 1440p Ultra to maximise the potential resolution and graphical quality that the GeForce GTX 1080 can deliver with this game.
To summarise, GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what XCOM 2 screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 50 FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 84 FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 110 FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $6.36 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $8.33 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $14.00 per frame.
