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 5500 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5500 8GB Performance Review

We can see that when playing Penumbra: Requiem with a Radeon RX 5500 8GB will get a very strong 200+ FPS. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

At $0 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 Radeon RX 5500 8GB 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.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this Radeon RX 5500 8GB card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Penumbra: Requiem at, because you can get 200+ FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 200+ frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 200+ FPS at 1080p Ultra.
