Skyrim retains the traditional open world gameplay found in the Elder Scrolls series. The player is free to roam the land of Skyrim at will. Within Skyrim lie five cities, comparatively larger to those in Oblivion's Cyrodiil setting, and expanses of wilderness and mountainous ranges.

The Elder Scrolls V

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 The Elder Scrolls V we quickly see it can get a very strong 200+ FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to The Elder Scrolls V 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 114 FPS.

With a system housing a graphics card like the GeForce GTX 1060 and some 4GB RAM, we will see a strong 4K Ultra result in The Elder Scrolls V. Look for a processor like the Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz CPU to go with this setup and Ultra is a sure thing.

To summarise, GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what The Elder Scrolls V screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 114 FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 191 FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 200+ FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $0.99 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $1.30 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $2.18 per frame.
