Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Prison Simulator: Prologue at 1440p would be pulling in about 65 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 47 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Prison Simulator: Prologue PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Resident Evil 8, Far Cry 6 and Battlefield 2042. Starting with Resident Evil 8 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 61FPS on Ultra and 85FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Far Cry 6 likely to achieve 61FPS on Ultra and 85FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Battlefield 2042 at Ultra setting we can expect 61 FPS, raising to 85 FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Prison Simulator: Prologue Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is a fan of team Nvidia, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested AMD card, the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB. It is placed at 4% worse performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up Prison Simulator: Prologue frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $164.99.
