What card do you think would run Fallout 4 on 1080p@60fps?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So, for christmas im building my computer. Currently I've got a 390 but i might change it depending on what the benchmarks say. As i am a big fan of fallout and going to play this asap i really want to enjoy it and not have hiccups with my performance. Thanks (Budget is not a problem)

(i do know that the game is only 2 days away, just want your guys ops on it)

Well, first off no one knows yet as I'm sure you guessed tongue.gif

You may have seen the minimum specs for the game, it suggests a GTX 550ti or an HD7870 as minimum. That would suggest that for some reason its going to work much, much better on a Nvidia card.

If budget wasnt a problem at all I'd get a 980ti.

But personally in your situation I would wait until the game drops to see what is actually going on with performance, because the disparity between the performance of the minimum recommended cards is hard to believe. Looking at the game I cant believe that a 390 wouldnt be able to max it out at 1080p, on the AMD side a 290x is the recommended for best performance and at stock clocks the 390 is about the same as a 290x.

Its been suggested that its a Gameworks title, but if you read the article that this came from on WCCFtech thats been requoted everywhere. AFAIK theres nothing official and its 'confirmed through sources'. Although that would explain the weird recommendation.

EDIT Grammar.

If you're playing right away I'd say it'll all depends how the game day drivers are.

A 390 should be fine though.

Yea guess i just have to wait. Going to a 980 is really only worth it if you are playing at 1440p or higher right?

Generally yes but overkill is subjective from person to person and game to game, if I had a 390 I would be waiting for the new cards next year for sure before even thinking about upgrading. Its just you said budget wasn't a problem. smile.gif

Well acording to DIgital Foundry's Fallout 4 Performance video, better to get a gtx970 then a 390 on this game.
(Was tested with normall drivers, not game ready from a nvidia)

Then there is a point 390 gets 35fps when the 970 still locked to 60
