Never understood the obsession with ultra settings you can barely tell the difference from high, especially when in motion.
dial all that garbage down abit then you can have your 4K cream pie.
but then again chasing 4K is equally a waste of power too.
That is a gross underestimation of what the graphics settings do as well as knowing the difference. The graphics settings enhance the quality of the render. You can't get to CG without implementing those ultra features as they evolve from generation to generation. They present very high quality rendering, that when coupled together, give excellent results. For example, why would anyone resort to a setting less than 16x when trying to filter textures (which is so important to the quality of rendering)? As another example, having volumetric light sources set to the highest detail level is glaringly obvious compared to a lower setting (which doesn't implement a good the post-process tone mapping algorithm). I could go on and on..
