Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II packshot image
Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II is a 2-D platformer for next-gen consoles, and marks the 2nd episode of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 and is currently under early development. It was announced saying it will have new zones and bosses and many other things we haven't seen before plus it was said that thanks to the sales of Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I the game will likely have a bigger budget. It is tied into Sonic CD in an unknown way, but Sonic CD is defined as the game's spiritual prequel. There will also be a new physics system in the game since Ken Balough said fans gave bad reviews over the physics in Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I as well as a brand new graphics engine. Additionally, Tails will return as a playable character.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II

GeForce GTX 1060

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 3 year old GeForce GTX 1060 while playing Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II we quickly see it can get a very strong 200+ FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II 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 GTX 1060 will still get a solid 158 FPS.

With a system housing a graphics card like the GeForce GTX 1060 and some 2GB RAM, we will see a strong 4K Ultra result in Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II. Look for a processor like the Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz CPU to go with this setup and Ultra is a sure thing.

To summarise, GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 158 FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 200+ FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $0.72 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $0.94 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $1.58 per frame.
