DayZ packshot image
DayZ is an open world survival horror video game mod for the 2009 computer game ARMA II and its 2010 expansion pack, ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead. It has been widely praised in the game media for its innovative design elements, with Kotaku and Eurogamer describing it as possibly the best zombie game ever made, and PCGamer saying it was one of the most important things to happen to PC Gaming in 2012. The mod was responsible for putting the three year old game into the top seller charts on Steam for over seven weeks, spending much of this time the top selling game, and is responsible for over 300,000 unit sales within two months of its release.

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 3 year old GeForce GTX 1060 while playing DayZ we quickly see it can return a reliable 70 FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

At 1440p this graphics card will cost $6.55 for each of the 38 frames it can get on Ultra. But it will be a solid gaming experience.

To summarise, DayZ works very well with a GeForce GTX 1060. 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.
