Thanks to today’s technology, we can run games from previous generations at resolutions that we couldn’t even imagine before. One gamer has taken this to the extreme by installing ‘Skyrim’ on his PC, equipped with an RTX 4090, with adding 1,000 mods now at 4K resolution. The result completely transforms the game, giving it a completely different appearance.
The protagonist of this ‘experiment’ is the youtuber Digital Dreams, who embarked on including improvements to lighting and the addition of new objects. Also, they incorporate color filters and shaders to achieve a truly amazing result. Of course, this achievement would not be possible without its powerful configuration, which includes a RTX 4090 and a Ryzen 9 7950, key elements to guarantee optimal game execution.
Digital Dreams shares the result of this experiment through a video on YouTube. In addition to running the game with said mods, you also manages to maintain a frequency of 60 frames per second, significantly improving the RPG experience. It is notable to note that we are talking about a game that debuted 12 years ago, and when comparing both versions, the difference is “overwhelming“.
On the other hand, the cost to run this title with the installed programs is quite high. We are talking about a computer that exceeds 50,000 pesosmainly because the graphics card used in this “experiment” has an approximate price of 39,000 pesos. It is important to keep in mind that this cost may vary depending on the RTX assembler.
As for the YouTuber, on his channel he is dedicated to running titles at maximum resolution and with maximum graphics, with the aim of providing the most impressive experience possible, taking advantage of the capabilities of the hardware. For example, although ‘The Witcher 3’ has a free update that improves the game’s graphics, Digital Dreams manages to run CD Projekt RED’s RPG with an even more visual aspect “realistic“ than the base version.
It’s impressive how a game can change not only because of the mods you install, but also because of the resolution at which you run it, allowing you to appreciate details that were not visible before and frames per second that provide a feeling of ‘fluidity’ when running them.
It is worth mentioning that this is possible thanks to the community that develops mods for the titles. This is especially relevant in games that do not have support for increasing the resolution natively.
