Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1080 Performance Review
Viewing the performance found on the 5 year old GeForce GTX 1080 while playing Half-Life: Alyx we quickly see it can return a reliable 70 FPS. To get that Half-Life: Alyx 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 1080 launch price, this would cost $18.42 for each 1440p Ultra frame, or a more reasonable $8.86 per FPS on Medium 1440p.
To summarise, Half-Life: Alyx works very well with a GeForce GTX 1080. 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.
