Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 980M 4GB, Core i7-4710HQ 4-Core 2.5GHz, 16GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i7-4710HQ 4-Core 2.5GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 980M 4GB graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 97 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the GeForce GTX 980M 4GB as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 313 at recommended requirement.

Lets compare todays most popular game, Cyberpunk 2077 with this PC. In summary, while looking at Low vs Ultra settings this GeForce GTX 980M 4GB should only play Cyberpunk 2077 on a small laptop screen and probably at less than High settings.

2nd most popular game: Horizon: Zero Dawn - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Horizon: Zero Dawn in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 980M 4GB, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 78 FPS, Medium setting: 61 FPS, High setting: 41 FPS, Ultra setting: 30 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Assassins Creed: Valhalla - To summarise, the GeForce GTX 980M 4GB fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Assassins Creed: Valhalla
