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

Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB Performance Review

The experience of playing Penumbra: Requiem through a 4 year old Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB is going to return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Those frames are achieved on Penumbra: Requiem when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

Playing Penumbra: Requiem on Ultra 4k is certainly possible with this graphics card and we expect it will return around 200+ frames per second at that top scale resolution.

Finding a PC with this gpu or better would return some strong FPS in Penumbra: Requiem. We would definitely recommend running at 4K screen res and on ultra, before trying any lower screen resolution. You would also need at least 0.512GB of RAM. Perhaps couple this gaming PC with a processor that's as powerful as the AMD Ryzen R5 1600X and Ultra 4K would be a smooth experience.

To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB card will play Penumbra: Requiem 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 $0.13, 1440p costs $0.17 and 4K costs $0.29.
