Fallout 4 and Star Wars Battlefront have just been released, and if the resolution on consoles doesn’t float your boat, try the full-on PC versions. With up to 9 times as many pixels, it’s an incredible gaming experience. But will your current graphics card cut it and reach those higher frame rates? Guru3D have performed extensive benchmarks for the average frames per second you can expect on both Fallout 4 and Star Wars Battlefront at max settings in the two graphs below. For your convenience, we’ve listed the performance you can expect from three of our most popular graphics cards using the max settings at the specified resolutions:

Star Wars Battlefront Benchmarks:

 

As you can see, it’s still early days for 4K gaming, but the mighty GTX980TI is capable of pushing that many pixels up to a perfectly playable 40+ FPS. If 1080p is just fine for you, the budget-minded GTX950 is good to go, and if you’re looking for a sweet spot in the middle, the GTX970 can push 50+ FPS at 1440p.

Whatever your preference, we’ve got you covered at PB Tech. Game on!
