Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Boneworks would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 47 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 65 FPS.

An Alternative Boneworks Graphics Card Option for 1080p
