Cities: Skylines

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 Cities: Skylines we quickly see it can get a very strong 200+ FPS. To get that Cities: Skylines 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 75 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 $9.33 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

This graphics card, paired with at least 6GB 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 Cities: Skylines screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 75 FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 126 FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 166 FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $4.22 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $5.56 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $9.33 per frame.
