NBA 2K19 has just been released so before benchmarking this latest basketball game, we’ve decided to capture some 4K screenshots on Ultra settings. For these screenshots, we used our NVIDIA GeForce GTX980Ti and we’ve included MSI Afterburner in order to give you an idea of how the game performs on that particular GPU in 4K.
As we can see, our NVIDIA GeForce GTX980Ti is unable to maintain a smooth 60fps experience in 4K on Ultra settings. Do note though that we’ve also had anti-aliasing enabled (set at 4), something that may explain this performance.
As for the game’s visuals… well… I wasn’t really that impressed. Ironically, I still remember when the first NBA 2K game was released on current-gen systems. Man, those graphics blew my mind back then. However, 2K Games has not overhauled its visuals all these years and as a result, NBA 2K19 does not feel as visually impressive as that its first current-gen version.
The character models look incredible and are among the best I’ve seen, however the lighting system is really old-gen-ish. Not only that, but the skin shaders are not up to what we’re seeing in most current-gen titles, resulting in faces that can look really plastic at times.
Enjoy the screenshots and stay tuned for our PC Performance Analysis article!
