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 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB Performance Review

After playing Penumbra: Requiem on a Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB it will get a very strong 200+ FPS. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

At $0.37 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 Vega 64 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. Especially if you have a AMD Ryzen R7 1800X processor or better.

In summary, the performance delivered by this graphics card easily overpowers that needed by Penumbra: Requiem. We expect to get a very strong frame rate of 200+ FPS at 1080p Ultra, but would advise moving up to 1440p Ultra to get 200+ frames per second or even 200+ FPS at 4K Ultra as the Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB can handle this. It just comes down to your preferred resolution then tweak your graphics settings to deliver the desired effects, without a care for performance.
