GeForce RTX 4090 Manages 30 FPS for A Plague Tale: Requiem in 8K Using DLSS 2.0


A new video shows the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 pushed to its limits in 8K with the upcoming game already known to be demanding and where an RTX 3070 GPU is recommended just to game at 1080p. The video was posted by John Papadopoulos (DSOG) and shows the first 10 minutes being played using DLSS 2.0. Using the DLSS quality preset and then the game’s Ultra preset, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 manages 30 FPS. It’s a far cry from what most gamers would want as these days many aspire to get over 120 FPS, and 60 FPS is often considered the minimum desired rate. However, the game does look stunning at 8K and realistically the number of people gaming at 8K is probably in the single-digit percentages right now. NVIDIA’s new DLSS 3 Frame Generation, which can add hi-res frames with RTX 40-series graphics cards, was turned off. A Plague Tale: Requiem will launch with DLSS 3 and it’s probable the game will see performance improvements with it and driver updates.

An Intel Core i9-9900K Processor was used and can clearly be seen using all cores at 4.7 GHz and paired with 16GB of DDR4 at 3800 Mhz. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 boost clock was seen hitting 2715 MHz. A Plague Tale: Requiem releases for PC and consoles in a couple of days on October 18.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
