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 2070 Super 8GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 2 year old GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB while playing Penumbra: Requiem we quickly see it can return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running 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 Intel Core i7-9700K 8-Core 3.6GHz and Ultra 4K would be a smooth experience.

To summarise, GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB 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 $0.14 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $0.18 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $0.30 per frame.
