Benchmarks: 1440p & 4K
Moving to 1440p, gamers will require a Vega 64 or GTX 1070 Ti graphics card for an average of 60fps. Here we see massive performance gains from the Titan X and GTX 1080 Ti as they rendered around 40% more frames on average. That said, when looking at the 1% low figures the margin was well under 20%, so that's obviously a lot less impressive.
It's worth noting that not a single previous generation GPU can deliver 60fps on average -- not even the Titan X, so that's pretty shocking. Short of the GTX 980 Ti, I don't think I'd bother trying to use any of these GPUs at 1440p with the ultra quality settings.
Once again, we find that 4K is a bit too much for even the latest generation GPUs though you could probably make do with the Titan X or GTX 1080 Ti. Pretty disappointing though given that I can play games such as Battlefront II at 4K using the ultra quality detail settings with a plain old GTX 1080 and still receive a smooth, playable experience. I'm sure I don't need to tell you that game looks worlds better even with EA spoiling it.
