Close to the Sun

GeForce GTX 980 4GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 980 4GB Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 6 year old GeForce GTX 980 4GB while playing Close to the Sun we quickly see it can return a reliable 69 FPS. To get that Close to the Sun 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 38 frame count in Ultra graphics, even on 1440p resolution. Or it could also get 47 FPS on Medium graphics at 4K resolution, if you wanted higher resolution. Based on the GeForce GTX 980 4GB launch price, this would cost $14.47 for each 1440p Ultra frame, or a more reasonable $6.96 per FPS on Medium 1440p.

To summarise, Close to the Sun works very well with a GeForce GTX 980 4GB. While it can comfortably perform at 1080p we know it is best served at 1440p resolutions and could possibly go up to 4K with some settings adjustments. Are you after bigger resolution with lower graphics quality or higher graphics quality and smaller res? Because here are a few figures that could help you choose your optimum Low Vs Ultra. 1080p Ultra setting: 50 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 79 FPS, 1440p High setting: 53 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 38 FPS.
