From 1280x1024 to 1920x1080 - What FPS loss to expect?

Hey guys, I always had this question.

I have got a GTX 660, i5 3470, 8GB of RAM.

I am wondering what's the FPS count difference between playing on 1920x1080 on High and playing on 1280x1024 on High?

That in case I will switch to a 1920x1080 monitor.

Depends on how VRAM you have on your GPU. Increasing your resolution will require some space from your VRAM so if you have a 4gb GTX 660, then I think you're fine.

I understand that you have no idea what you're talking about.

No GTX 660 has ever had 4GB of VRAM. Most of the models have 2GB VRAM, one or a couple have 3GB VRAM.

 

And I know it depends on my VRAM and many other things, but I wanted an answer from someone who might know more than me, not less.

 

Thanks for trying to help though.

I made the jump from 1280x1024 to 1920x1080 a few years ago, I had a GTX580 back then, expect a ~25% performance drop approx.

With my GTX 750 i can't really lock 60 FPS straight, experiencing some random lagg on 1920x1080. So i simply put it to 50 FPS, and now it works smooth. Settings are on High.

Create a custom resolution in nVidia Control Panel and test it yourself. I've had some fun running games at 3200x1800 :lol:

I didn't lost any fps when I went from 1024x768 to 1920x1080, but the stutter made the job of ruining the game optimization.

I have a similar setup to yours: 660ti and i5-3570k. I've been playing the game at 1920x1080 this whole time with mostly High settings, and get a steady 60fps with about 1-3 fps drops for a second or two (They're not stutters though).

Probably depends more on your graphics card settings and available VRAM than resolution settings; I've read that (in some cases, anyway) going to a higher resolution can sometimes improve performance with the same video settings.

I can get 60fps at 1080p high-very high settings but normal textures with 2gb vram R9 270

I also have an i5-4590 and 8gb ram

i once hooked up gta5 on a tv that can do 728p and upscaled to 1080p, and performance did drop so hard, that i had to work fast to do 1080p pictures, everything was overheating fast.

i usually get 24-30fps on avrage with my native 1280x1024 resolution on semi max/ultra settings
