Maneater 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 14th Feb 2020

If you are looking to buy a new PC that can play Maneater then below you will find we explore exactly that. We are putting together a gaming PC build for Maneater from a carefully selected set of our favourite hardware components that are priced best today. With the mission objective being a high gaming standard with the highest ultra graphics, while running on 1080p screen res. These hardware items found in our build will continue to have their prices checked and components will be swapped in and out as we feel better hardware for our build is released.

Let’s consider some of the interesting characteristics about this game, to help us build something that matches the sort of game we are considering to build a PC for. As we know it comes under the Action, RPG genre style categories, which may well influence some of our peripheral selections, ensuring we consider the specifics for the games requirements. Looking at its development the game was built during 2019 and around that period and the devs themselves probably had hardware comparable to some of the latest hardware of that period. In terms of its relative hardware demanding position, it is considered by us as not featuring on our list of most demanding games of today at least at the moment, although that list shifts regularly. Obviously these points help give us a better picture of what we may want in the build, but they are only supporting us because when we choose, it is the best priced components that will find their way into this build today.

We expect Maneater would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 49 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 68 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

Fortnite: Chapter 2 will get 114 on Ultra and 159 FPS on High graphics settings with the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS XXX 8GB.

An Alternative Maneater Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Perhaps you are after a Nvidia graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Ventus XS OC 6GB, which has a 3% better performance variation, but is still a suitable video card choice for this game. We have also considered the best value for performance based on today’s prices, with it costing $209.99 at the moment.
