Benchmarks: 1440p and 4K Performance

Moving up to 1440p we find that most mid-range graphics cards will deliver somewhat laggy performance with all the bells and whistles turned on. Graphics cards such as the Radeon R9 270X or GeForce GTX 960, for example, and even the R9 280X and GTX 780 Ti will struggle to deliver smooth gameplay at this resolution using the ultra quality settings.

Ideally gamers will want something no slower than a GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon R9 290.

Testing 4K Performance (2160p)

Gaming at 4K requires some serious GPU power and so far there isn’t a single GPU that is up to the task. Star Wars Battlefront proved to be extremely demanding at 4K and even the mighty GeForce GTX 980 Ti and Radeon R9 Fury X struggled to deliver perfectly smooth gameplay.
