Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal packshot image
While explosively stripping the evil pirate LeChuck of his demonic mojo, Guybrush Threepwood inadvertently infects the entire Caribbean with the arch-fiend's expelled voodoo, which threatens to transform buccaneers into unruly pirate monsters. Pursued by a notorious cut-throat Pirate Hunter and a creepy French Physician who believes that Guybrush's eerily-infected hand holds the secret of eternal life, Threepwood sails the seven seas in search of La Esponja Grande, a legendary sea sponge with unparalleled voodoo exfoliating abilities. But little does Guybrush know, his quest is part of a larger, more sinister plot, and good and evil are not always as they seem.

Radeon RX 480X 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 480X 4GB Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 5 year old Radeon RX 480X 4GB while playing Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal we quickly see it can return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX 480X 4GB overshadows the Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 200+ frames per sec. Using the graphics card release price, this is a $0.43 cost per FPS and a $0.26 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

Crank things up is what we say. Ultra 4K is our recommended game settings for Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal, as long as you have 1GB of RAM or more.
