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 560 2GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 560 2GB Performance Review

Running a Radeon RX 560 2GB to play Penumbra: Requiem shows us that we expect it 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.

This GPU and game match up means this graphics hardware can comfortably play Penumbra: Requiem at 4K. We expect to see around the 200+ FPS mark on Ultra 4K.

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.

To summarise, this game runs easily using this graphics card at all resolutions. Penumbra: Requiem gets 200+ FPS at 4K Ultra costing $0.24 per frame. But if that doesnt feel right for you then you can drop the graphics setting down to High for 200+ FPS costing $0.17 per frame. Otherwise you can get some great performance by moving down a resolution bracket to 1440p. 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p costing $0.14 per frame or 1440p High gets 200+ FPS costing $0.10 per frame.
