Penumbra: Requiem packshot image
The game starts as the last one ends, with Philip sending the 'kill them all' message. As soon as he finishes, one of the Infected barges in and hits Phillip on the head with something unseen. The player then controls a character in some kind of tomb. Items need to be collected in each chamber in order to move on to the next. In the journey, the player starts to see familiar places from other parts of the facility and begins to receive communications from persons who Philip had encountered previously, such as Dr. Richard Emminis who Philip encountered in the Computer Room of Black Plague, a member of the Archaic Elevated Caste called Ellof Carpenter, as well as person who later identifies himself as Philip's former adviser, Red, from the first Penumbra game.

Penumbra: Requiem

GeForce GTX 980 4GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 980 4GB Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 7 year old GeForce GTX 980 4GB while playing Penumbra: Requiem we quickly see it can get a very strong 200+ FPS. To get that Penumbra: Requiem is benched at High graphics setting and at 1080p.

But then the GeForce GTX 980 4GB 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 $0.57 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

This graphics card, paired with at least 0.512GB system memory and a suitable processor, like the Intel Core i7-4770K 4-Core 3.5GHz would be perfect to run this game at 4K Ultra.

To summarise, GeForce GTX 980 4GB graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Penumbra: Requiem 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 $0.26 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $0.34 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $0.57 per frame.
