Pillars of Eternity packshot image
Project Eternity will take the central hero, memorable companions and the epic exploration of Baldur’s Gate, add in the fun, intense combat and dungeon diving of Icewind Dale, and tie it all together with the emotional writing and mature thematic exploration of Planescape: Torment.
Combat uses a tactical real-time with pause system - positioning your party and coordinating attacks and abilities is one of the keys to success. The world map is dotted with unique locations and wilderness ripe for exploration and questing. You’ll create your own character and collect companions along the way – taking him or her not just through this story, but, with your continued support, through future adventures. You will engage in dialogues that are deep, and offer many choices to determine the fate of you and your party. …and you'll experience a story that explores mature themes and presents you with complex, difficult choices to shape how your story plays out.

Pillars of Eternity

GeForce GTX 1060

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old GeForce GTX 1060 while playing Pillars of Eternity we quickly see it can get a very strong 165 FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to Pillars of Eternity 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 GTX 1060 will still get a solid 53 FPS.

To summarise, GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Pillars of Eternity screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 53 FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 90 FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 118 FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $2.11 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $2.77 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $4.70 per frame.
