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 RTX 2080

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2080 Performance Review

Running a GeForce RTX 2080 to play Penumbra: Requiem shows us that we expect it to get a very strong 200+ FPS. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

At $0.47 per FPS at 4K, if we assume the GPU’s launch price. This GPU can play Penumbra: Requiem at a respectable 200+ frame rate on 4K Ultra.

The GeForce RTX 2080 along with the right system memory, 0.512GB, is very capable of getting top FPS results even at 4K Ultra graphics settings. We would recommend 4K as the way to go here. Especially if you have a Intel Core i7-8700K 6-Core 3.7GHz processor or better.

To summarise, this game runs easily using this graphics card at all resolutions. Penumbra: Requiem gets 200+ FPS at 4K Ultra costing $0.47 per frame. But if that doesnt feel right for you then you can drop the graphics setting down to High for 200+ FPS costing $0.33 per frame. Otherwise you can get some great performance by moving down a resolution bracket to 1440p. 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p costing $0.28 per frame or 1440p High gets 200+ FPS costing $0.20 per frame.
