Black Mesa (previously known as Black Mesa: Source) is a planned third-party total conversion modification for Valve Corporation's Source Engine. The stated goal of the project was to recreate Valve's critically acclaimed 1998 video game Half-Life using the more advanced capabilities of the Source Engine. The 40-person development team said they hoped to create a more engrossing in-game world with more varied, complex environments and more challenging, realistic gameplay.

Black Mesa

GeForce GTX 1060

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old GeForce GTX 1060 while playing Black Mesa we quickly see it can return a reliable 79 FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

At 1440p this graphics card will cost $5.79 for each of the 43 frames it can get on Ultra. But it will be a solid gaming experience.

To summarise, Black Mesa works very well with a GeForce GTX 1060. While it can comfortably perform at 1080p we know it is best served at 1440p resolutions and could possibly go up to 4K with some settings adjustments. Are you after bigger resolution with lower graphics quality or higher graphics quality and smaller res? Because here are a few figures that could help you choose your optimum Low Vs Ultra. 1080p Ultra setting: 57 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 90 FPS, 1440p High setting: 60 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 43 FPS.
