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 550 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 550 4GB Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 3 year old Radeon RX 550 4GB while playing Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame we quickly see it can return a consistently high 140 frame rate. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

Following on from those 1920x1080 screen FPS, we know this GPU is of a much higher performance than the recommended system specs. Even 4K Ultra returns 45 FPS on Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame. But it’s still worth considering the $1.76 per Ultra 4K FPS you would get compared to the $1.04 at 1440p Ultra.

To summarise, Radeon RX 550 4GB graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 45 FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 76 FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 100 FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $0.79 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $1.04 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $1.76 per frame.
