Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review
Viewing the performance found on the 5 year old GeForce GTX 1060 while playing Star Nomad 2 we quickly see it can get a very strong 200+ FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.
As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to Star Nomad 2 rec requirements, it would make more sense if you pushed it up to 1440p or 4K, where even at Ultra 4K graphics settings the GeForce GTX 1060 will still get a solid 171 FPS.
With a system housing a graphics card like the GeForce GTX 1060 and some 8GB RAM, we will see a strong 4K Ultra result in Star Nomad 2. Look for a processor like the Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz CPU to go with this setup and Ultra is a sure thing.
To summarise, GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Star Nomad 2 screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 171 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 $0.66 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $0.87 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $1.46 per frame.
