Cities: Skylines

GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q Performance Review

Playing Cities: Skylines on the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q, which is a 2 year old graphics card will likely return a consistently high 194 frame rate. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

And so following those results you could of course play this at 1080p, but this GPU is somewhat wasted at that resolution. We would suggest running Cities: Skylines at 4K Ultra instead, where the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q would still get 63 FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $0 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0 at 1440p Ultra.

This is a powerful graphics card for Cities: Skylines and we can certainly recommend it to deliver 4K screen res at ultra settings. Get a system with at least 6GB of RAM though. The PC’s processor would also want to be around the Intel Core i7-9850H 6-Core 2.6GHz’s performance to get a smooth experience.

To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding Cities: Skylines frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 63 FPS, 1440p will get 106 frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 139 FPS. Based around the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $0, 1440p frames cost $0 each and then the 4K costs $0 per frame.
