Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W Performance Review

Booting up Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots with the 2 year old GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W looks like it will return a consistently high 140 frame rate. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

And so following those results you could of course play this at 1080p, but this GPU is somewhat wasted at that resolution. We would suggest running Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots at 4K Ultra instead, where the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W would still get 45 FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $0 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0 at 1440p Ultra.

To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W solution can play Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 45 frame rate, whereby we see 76 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 100 frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.
