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 580 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 580 4GB Performance Review

Playing Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame on the Radeon RX 580 4GB, which is a 3 year old graphics card will likely 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 580 4GB would still get 45 FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $4.11 per Ultra 4K FPS or $2.43 at 1440p Ultra.

To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 45 FPS, 1440p will get 76 frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 100 FPS. Based around the Radeon RX 580 4GB launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $1.85, 1440p frames cost $2.43 each and then the 4K costs $4.11 per frame.
