Hardspace: Shipbreaker 1440p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 19th Jan 2021

If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run Hardspace: Shipbreaker then that is exactly what we will be doing in this review. Our challenge is in choosing the right priced PC items to get together an optimum build, which can meet the needs of Hardspace: Shipbreaker. And so our expectations are that this game will confidently run with ultra settings selected, delivered via a 1440p screen resolution. These prices are are checked multiple times each day and we update the build if other hardware is better value for money, while still meeting our gaming hardware standards.

This title falls in the Sim, Sandbox genre category, which itself can influence the type of hardware we might consider for this build. Something we sometimes dont consider is that the game would be developed in 2020 and therefore on hardware from around that period of time. We can also assume that hardware from around that period would be part of the targeted hardware, in terms of performance, by the developers, as they provide graphical options for the hardware capabilities available. It is currently not on our list of most demanding games. Also it is falling outside of our most popular games list at the moment. With this info in hand to help guide our hardware build choices we will now select today’s best priced components that meet these game characteristics.

Other Popular Game 1440p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Hardspace: Shipbreaker would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 39 FPS average, at 4k Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 4k graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 55 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Hardspace: Shipbreaker PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Cyberpunk 2077, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and FIFA 21. Starting with Cyberpunk 2077 we can see that at 1440p we are likely to see 56FPS on Ultra and 78FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War likely to achieve 86FPS on Ultra and 120FPS when reduced to High. Finally with FIFA 21 at Ultra setting we can expect 200+ FPS, raising to 200+ FPS on High graphics settings.
