Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition

GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB Performance Review

Getting the Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition running while using a GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB can see it could return a reliable 82 FPS. Those frames are achieved on Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

The 45 FPS on 1440p Ultra setting is a great way of running this game with this GPU. You can still consider pushing it up to 4K, where it can get 37FPS on High 4K or perhaps drop it to Medium 4K, where it increases to 55 FPS. Another way to look at it is $14.42 for each frame per second, when using the GPU launch price.

In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 59 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 118 FPS or the Medium returning 93 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 62 FPS and then Ultra gets 45 FPS.
