IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946

GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q Performance Review

We can see that when playing IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 with a GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q will return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Those frames are achieved on IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

This GPU and game match up means this graphics hardware can comfortably play IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 at 4K. We expect to see around the 200+ FPS mark on Ultra 4K.

Finding a PC with this gpu or better would return some strong FPS in IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946. We would definitely recommend running at 4K screen res and on ultra, before trying any lower screen resolution. You would also need at least 1GB of RAM. Perhaps couple this gaming PC with a processor that's as powerful as the Intel Core i9-9900K 8-Core 3.6GHz and Ultra 4K would be a smooth experience.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 at, because you can get 200+ FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 200+ frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 200+ FPS at 1080p Ultra.
