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 570 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 570 8GB Performance Review

Booting up Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame with the 3 year old Radeon RX 570 8GB looks like it will return a consistently high 140 frame rate. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

And so following those results you could of course play this at 1080p, but this GPU is somewhat wasted at that resolution. We would suggest running Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame at 4K Ultra instead, where the Radeon RX 570 8GB would still get 45 FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $4.00 per Ultra 4K FPS or $2.37 at 1440p Ultra.

To summarise, this is an easy one, the Radeon RX 570 8GB solution can play Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 45 frame rate, whereby we see 76 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 100 frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $1.80, 1440p costs $2.37 and 4K costs $4.00.
