Asus Strix 1080 - very poor fps in games with 4K

Hey all.

I've read alot of post about poor fps with nvidia 1080, but none have solved my problem. First my specs:

16 GB DDR3
Asus Strix 1080
2x500GB SSD
i7-4770k 3.50GHZ
Monitor - SAMSUNG U28E590D

Now i am quite a novice in this (and in pc in whole) but as fare as i understand, i should be able to play in 4k with ultra setting, with a decent fps, is this right?

I tried, Dishonored 2 (30-50 fps), Crysis 2 (35-60 fps) and Doom (30-50 fps), with the highest fps, being when the games is least challenging my hardware. I have tried disabling DVR from the xbox app, as some suggested that might be the problem - it wasn't.

Any help would be highly highly appreciated, but do remember, im a huge n00b, so if your so kind as to help, please explain in the most n00bish-way possible, thanks alot in advance guys.

    no

    not even a gtx 1080 ti is enough for that with decent fps


    start at medium settings, then tweak up settings while maintaining decent fps

    At this point of a time, the only way up from your GPU is the 1080Ti. Even though that is way more powerful, it still cannot give decent FPS at Ultra for those games. Your best choice right now is to change the settings until you hit the FPS you like.

    At 4k, the bottleneck of the CPU is minor in comparison to the stress on the GPU, so there really is no reason to upgrade. If you really want to, switch that 4770k to an 8700k, with a new motherboard and new RAM. But that should not net too much of extra performance at 4k.

    Nothing out there at the moment that can do 4k ultra. 4k medium-high is what you can do with a 1080 and with a 1080ti it's the same but with stable 60fps. We are getting there but not yet since 4k isn't a mainstream gaming resolution yet.
