Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review
Viewing the performance found on the 6 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.
If the gaming PC that has this GeForce GTX 1060 in it also had 8GB system memory and a processor that is as or more powerful than the Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz then Ultra 1440p is the most optimum way to play Pillars of Eternity.
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.
