Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 880M SLI, Core i7-4710MQ 4-Core 2.5GHz, 16GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Core i7-4710MQ 4-Core 2.5GHz CPU with a GeForce GTX 880M SLI GPU and 16GB RAM is more powerful than 478 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of Core i7-4710MQ 4-Core 2.5GHz. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 627 games at recommended requirement.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 880M SLI looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Red Dead Redemption 2 experience it will generate 92 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 72 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 49 FPS when played at High settings and down to 35 FPS when turned up to Ultra on 1440p. You might still be looking for 1080p though to get some higher smoother FPS, where you could get 46 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, a good way to look at the performance with this GeForce GTX 880M SLI is to consider, do you want 1080p gaming with ok graphics settings or would you be needing 1440p resolution with bottom end graphics settings. Take a look at the following results to help you choose. 1080p Medium 87 FPS, 1080p High setting: 59 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 42 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 85 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 67 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce GTX 880M SLI solution can play Halo: Reach at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 61 frame rate, whereby we see 102 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 134 frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.
