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 3050

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 3050 Performance Review

The experience of playing RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher through a 1 year old GeForce RTX 3050 is going to get a very strong 200+ FPS. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

But then the GeForce RTX 3050 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 $0.15 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 i7-9700K 8-Core 3.6GHz would be perfect to run this game at 4K Ultra.

To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the GeForce RTX 3050 card will play RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 200+ frame rate, 1440p can deliver 200+ FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 200+ frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $0.07, 1440p costs $0.09 and 4K costs $0.15.
