Yesterday, we shared two videos from ThirtyIR in which he showcased Doom and Middle-earth Shadow of War running in 8K resolution on Ultra settings. And today, the YouTuber has released two new videos showing Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Call of Duty WWII running in such high resolutions.
In order to achieve somehow playable framerates, ThirtyIR has used two NVIDIA Titan RTX graphics cards. Both of these games support SLI and as such both of these GPUs were used to their fullest.
The NVIDIA Titan RTX is slightly faster than the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080Ti. In SLI, two of these highly expensive graphics cards were able to run Call of Duty WWII with an average of 60fps, though there were some minor drops below 60fps here and there. Still, the game appeared to be smoothly in 8K. On the other hand, Star Wars Battlefront 2 ran with an average of 55fps.
Of course we should note that both Call of Duty WWII and Star Wars Battlefront 2 are two of the most optimized PC games of 2017. Still, it’s fascinating watching modern-day games running with smooth framerates in resolutions that were not achievable a couple of years ago.
Of course, and as we’ve already stated, it will cost you $5000 for two NVIDIA Titan RTX in order to play in 8K, however it is possible even with two NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080Ti GPUs (provided you lower some settings). Naturally, this only applies to games that support SLI and… well… things are not ideal for SLI systems right now when it comes to non-AAA titles.
Anyway, enjoy a glimpse at the future of 8K gaming!
