Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 980M 4GB, Core i7-4860HQ 4-Core 2.4GHz, 32GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i7-4860HQ 4-Core 2.4GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 980M 4GB graphics card and 32GB RAM is better performing than 276 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the GeForce GTX 980M 4GB as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 453 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how this PC performs with a popular game like Cyberpunk 2077. In summary, while looking at Low vs Ultra settings this GeForce GTX 980M 4GB should only play Cyberpunk 2077 on a small laptop screen and probably at less than High settings.

2nd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Red Dead Redemption 2 in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 980M 4GB, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 78 FPS, Medium setting: 61 FPS, High setting: 41 FPS, Ultra setting: 30 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Dragon Ball Z Kakarot - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 980M 4GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 61 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Dragon Ball Z Kakarot then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 122 FPS or the Medium returning 96 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 65 FPS and then Ultra gets 46 FPS.
