Graphics options (2k/ 1440p/ Ultra)

(Dimitri Lemus) #1

Hey y’all,

After talking with Zwift tech support, it has been made clear there is no 2k/ 1440p/ ultra graphics option for Zwift at this time. I have a pc that is more than capable of running the application at 1440p with at least a steady 60fps. Now, it’s not the end of the world by any means that I have to use the 1080p setting. However, I was told to get involved in the forums here and the devo team has had this passed along to them.

I figured let’s get us zwifters rolling on this and hopefully a 2k option will be made available in the near future for any of us on the same boat.

Feel free to share your thoughts.

I’m also a Cat 1 roadie who took a little time away from racing and is looking for some other peeps to roll with.

Thats not true, zwift runs in 4K and ultra graphics on my PC (and it looks amazing!).
Zwift only shows graphic options that it things your pc can handle. Maybe your graphic card is not properly recognized?!

Can you post the specs of your PC including the video card.

Use: and copy & paste the results.

I run zwift in Ultra mode for quite a while now, with a nvidia gtx 1060.

While I would love to run 1440p or higher, my Lenovo Z40-70 laptop can’t even keep up with the current offerings during mass start events or extremely crowded paths in NYC. While better graphics would be nice, this falls under the want and not the need category. Now, if we are talking about the 'CADE, I would say better graphics are more of a need than a want.

I chatted with tech support, there is no 2k option.
Even though there is a 4K option.

I would guess that is the problem at this point. I can play AAA titles at 1440p w/ 60+FPS on high or ultra settings.
