Regular GTX 1080 enough to play in 4k?

Recommended Posts

Would a regular GTX 1080 8GB video card be sufficient to run this sim at 4K with decent performance?

From what I have seen, you need a 2080ti to run it in Ultra 4k.

Out of interest did you try 1440p on your 1070?

Wondering if high settings are playable?

And did you try what effect playing with the render scaling slider has?

On 2K on high and some ultra settings I'm always above 30 fps (have to test some airliners yet).

But, 4K... I can't guarantee anything.

even with a 2080ti I'm seeing people struggle with 4k.  My personal opinion is no 4k for now.  Then we can re-evaluate when the newest graphic cards come out later this year.  Then again I've seen videos where people seem personally content with frames dancing around in the teens.  But I think 4k is not a good option unless we can maintain 30 everywhere.

NO 4K -  i7- 9700K, GTX1080, 32GB RAM - I can run it 3440x 1440 with High settings  , If I drop to 1080P I can run at Ultra . My goal is smooth so your mileage may vary.

I did change the res to 1440p but I didn't test it on high settings. I did try 1080p though and fps was very good. People with a 1080p monitor and at least a 1070 shouldn't have no problem at all

Yes I set my render scale to 80 and use Nvidia panel to bump up the sharpening a little bit. Works out well for me. Now with the new system I just built, I don't have to do that anymore

What's the specs on your new system -  Did you go with AMD CPU  ?   That's what I need to figure out for my next system build this winter.  Intel or AMD
