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

GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q Performance Review

We can see that when playing Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame with a GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q will get a very strong 140 FPS. That base FPS is at 1080p and High visual settings.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame rec requirements, it would make more sense if you pushed it up to 1440p or 4K, where even at Ultra 4K graphics settings the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q will still get a solid 45 FPS.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q 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.
