Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame packshot image
Similar to the first Prince of Persia, the character explores various deadly areas by running, jumping, crawling, avoiding traps, solving puzzles and drinking magic potions. Prince of Persia 2 is, however, more combat-heavy than its predecessor. In the first game, enemies appear only occasionally and are always alone, while in the sequel, up to four enemies may appear at once, sometimes flanking the player, and may even be instantly replaced by reinforcements when they are killed. As in Prince of Persia, the trick is to complete the game under a strict time limit that passes in real time. Lives are unlimited, but time cannot be regained except by reverting to a previously saved game. In other areas, more significant improvements have been made. The graphics are far more complex than the simple look of the game's predecessor, the areas explored are larger, and the variety of backdrops is greater.

Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame

Radeon RX 490X 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 490X 8GB Performance Review

We can see that when playing Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame with a Radeon RX 490X 8GB will return a consistently high 140 frame rate. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX 490X 8GB overshadows the Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 45 frames per sec. Using the graphics card release price, this is a $15.56 cost per FPS and a $9.21 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this Radeon RX 490X 8GB card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame at, because you can get 45 FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 76 frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 100 FPS at 1080p Ultra.
