Trade Empires packshot image
Trade Empires is a PC game developed by Frog City Software in San Francisco and published by Eidos Interactive. During development its working title was The Silk Road; however, this was changed by Eidos Interactive as they were concerned about the title being too highbrow. Trade Empires is a pausable real-time strategy game about building a merchant empire. Gamers build vast transport and trade networks that change over thousands of years as new technologies are developed and more modern products are discovered. The rules of the game are simple; the variety comes in through the discovery of new products to trade and new ways to transport those products.

Trade Empires

GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q Performance Review

We can see that when playing Trade Empires with a GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q will get a very strong 200+ FPS. That base FPS is at 1080p and High visual settings.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to Trade Empires 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 RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q will still get a solid 200+ FPS.

With a system housing a graphics card like the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q and some 0.064GB RAM, we will see a strong 4K Ultra result in Trade Empires.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Trade Empires at, because you can get 200+ FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 200+ frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 200+ FPS at 1080p Ultra.
