With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA Superclocked ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition can run Diablo 4 at 1080p and predict it will return reasonable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 125 FPS, Medium: 99 FPS, High: 67 FPS and Ultra: 48 FPS.
