In a desperate war for Earth's survival against an unrelenting alien enemy, the only way to defeat them is to become one of them. Earth is under siege by the Strogg, a barbaric alien race moving through the universe consuming, recycling and annihilating any civilization in their path. In a desperate attempt to survive, an armada of Earth's finest warriors is sent to take the battle to the Strogg home planet. You are Matthew Kane, an elite member of Rhino Squad and Earth's valiant invasion force. Fight alone, with your squad, or in hover tanks and mechanized walkers as you engage in a heroic mission to the heart of the Strogg war machine. Battle through early missions as a deadly marine, then after your capture, as a marine-turned-Strogg with enhanced abilities and the power to turn the tide of the war.

Quake IV

GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q Performance Review

We can see that when playing Quake IV with a GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q will return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Those frames are achieved on Quake IV when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

This GPU and game match up means this graphics hardware can comfortably play Quake IV at 4K. We expect to see around the 200+ FPS mark on Ultra 4K.

Finding a PC with this gpu or better would return some strong FPS in Quake IV. We would definitely recommend running at 4K screen res and on ultra, before trying any lower screen resolution. You would also need at least 0.512GB of RAM. Perhaps couple this gaming PC with a processor that's as powerful as the Intel Core i9-9900K 8-Core 3.6GHz and Ultra 4K would be a smooth experience.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Quake IV at, because you can get 200+ FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 200+ frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 200+ FPS at 1080p Ultra.
