RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher packshot image
Built by the General Motors Electromotive Division as a replacement of the SW1200, the SW1500 was intended for switching duties, and was capable of light branch line work as a road switcher. It was a development of the SW1200 and previous SW-series switchers dating back many years earlier, and was fitted with a 1500 horsepower two-stroke V-12 diesel engine. A total of 808 examples were built from 1966 to 1974, serving industrial and railroad operators across the length and breadth of the United States, with approximately a quarter of the whole production initially purchased by the Southern Pacific Railroad. A huge number of SW1500s can still be found in use today, proving the durability and versatility of this old locomotive design.

RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher

GeForce GTX 1070

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1070 Performance Review

Getting the RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher running while using a GeForce GTX 1070 can see it could get a very strong 200+ FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

But then the GeForce GTX 1070 will get a solid big screen performance at 4K, with 200+ frames per second. So we expect you are likely to consider running the game in 4K or 1440p. If you are interested, this is a cost of $0.43 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

This graphics card, paired with at least 1GB system memory and a suitable processor, like the Intel Core i7-6700K 4-Core 4.0GHz would be perfect to run this game at 4K Ultra.

In summary, the GeForce GTX 1070 is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 200+ FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 200+ frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 200+ FPS.
