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 RTX 2070 Mobile

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 1 year old GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile while playing RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher we quickly see it can return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

With such a strong 1080p performance the GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile overshadows the RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 200+ frames per sec. Using the graphics card release price, this is a $0 cost per FPS and a $0 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

Crank things up is what we say. Ultra 4K is our recommended game settings for RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher, as long as you have 1GB of RAM or more.

To summarise, GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 200+ FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 200+ FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $0 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $0 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $0 per frame.
