Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed packshot image
Need for Speed Porsche Unleashed gives the player the opportunity to race Porsche cars throughout a range of tracks located in Europe. The cars were studied in detail in terms of driving mechanics in order to create a realistic simulation. The premise of the game remains largely the same compared to previous games in the series: driving and racing sports cars. However, the game only offers Porsches. The handling of the cars was improved, and the player can customize their cars drawing from an in-depth catalog of different Porsche-parts. Although the game retains the police chases from Hot Pursuit and High Stakes, the feature is relatively minor and is only seen in the Factory Driver mode (see Modes).rnIn terms of game concept, Porsche Unleashed is often hailed for the unusual effort of focusing on a single car brand, thus allowing greater depth and acting as a platform of information on the Porsche brand. Apart from the vast number of cars and spare parts, the game also features many historical videos and pictures of Porsche vehicles, as well as written information.

Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed

Radeon RX 490X 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 490X 8GB Performance Review

We can see that when playing Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed with a Radeon RX 490X 8GB will return a consistently high 140 frame rate. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX 490X 8GB overshadows the Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 45 frames per sec. Using the graphics card release price, this is a $15.56 cost per FPS and a $9.21 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this Radeon RX 490X 8GB card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed at, because you can get 45 FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 76 frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 100 FPS at 1080p Ultra.
