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 3050

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 3050 Performance Review

The experience of playing Quake IV through a 1 year old GeForce RTX 3050 is going to get a very strong 200+ FPS. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

But then the GeForce RTX 3050 will get a solid big screen performance at 4K, with 200+ frames per second. So we expect you are likely to consider running the game in 4K or 1440p. If you are interested, this is a cost of $0.04 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

This graphics card, paired with at least 0.512GB system memory and a suitable processor, like the Intel Core i7-9700K 8-Core 3.6GHz would be perfect to run this game at 4K Ultra.

To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the GeForce RTX 3050 card will play Quake IV at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 200+ frame rate, 1440p can deliver 200+ FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 200+ frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $0.02, 1440p costs $0.03 and 4K costs $0.04.
