A couple of days ago, we shared a video showing Max Payne 3 running in 8K resolution on Max settings. Now while it was glorious to see this game running in 8K, we are certain that some of our fans would be more interested in newer titles running at such ridiculous resolutions. And thankfully, Thirty IR has released a video showing Battlefield 1 running in 8K on Ultra settings with more than 60fps.
Similarly to the Max Payne 3 video, Thirty IR used two NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080Ti graphics cards in SLI via NVLink. From the looks of it, SLI scaling was great which is why the game was able to run smoothly on such setup.
Now I’m pretty sure that some will say something like “What’s the point of running the games at 8K when we don’t have an 8K monitor?” And the answer to that is simple: downsampling. By using such high resolutions you can almost completely eliminate aliasing and shimmering, especially in games that rely solely on post-process AA solutions (Battlefield 1 is not one of them but still).
But anyway, we believe it’s really cool witnessing games running in 8K resolution, especially when they are running smoothly on Ultra settings. The fact that we have a game that came out in 2016 and runs this good in 8K – despite requiring a pair of RTX2080Tis – is also fascinating.
