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 Nano 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB Performance Review

The experience of playing Penumbra: Requiem through a Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 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.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB overshadows the Penumbra: Requiem 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 $0.39 cost per FPS and a $0.23 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

Crank things up is what we say. Ultra 4K is our recommended game settings for Penumbra: Requiem, as long as you have 0.512GB of RAM or more.

In summary, if you are looking to play Penumbra: Requiem in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 200+ frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 200+ FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 200+ FPS in Ultra as well.
