Modern Warfare 3

GeForce GTX 1080

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1080 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old GeForce GTX 1080 while playing Modern Warfare 3 we quickly see it can get a very strong 200+ FPS. To get that Modern Warfare 3 is benched at High graphics setting and at 1080p.

But then the GeForce GTX 1080 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 $2.42 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

This graphics card, paired with at least 3GB system memory and a suitable processor, like the Intel Core i7-6700K 4-Core 4.0GHz would be perfect to run this game at 4K Ultra.

To summarise, GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Modern Warfare 3 screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 200+ FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 200+ FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $1.10 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $1.44 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $2.42 per frame.
