Pharaoh: Cleopatra packshot image
Basically, Cleopatra picks up where Pharaoh left off and lets you take command of Egypt's dynastic line though four new campaigns. The first campaign, Valley of the Kings puts you in charge of building huge new tombs, carved into the faces of the cliffs that surround your city. Once you've got 'em built, you'll also have to work very hard to make sure that the local tomb robbers don't crack into them and steal all of the supplies for the journey into the underworld that you have stocked them with. Once you've made it through these beginning missions (and as the easiest of the lot, they're not all that easy), you'll be ready to move on to Ancient Conquerors, several missions putting you against the worst of Egypt's enemies (the fight with the Hittites took me forever to beat).As if fighting off all these invaders wasn't bad enough, you'll also have to keep your cities stocked with all the niceties of an advanced civilization.

Pharaoh: Cleopatra

GeForce GTX 1060

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old GeForce GTX 1060 while playing Pharaoh: Cleopatra 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 Pharaoh: Cleopatra 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 200+ FPS.

With a system housing a graphics card like the GeForce GTX 1060 and some 0.032GB RAM, we will see a strong 4K Ultra result in Pharaoh: Cleopatra. 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 Pharaoh: Cleopatra screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 200+ 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 $0.01 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $0.02 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $0.03 per frame.
