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.

Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal

Radeon RX 480 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 480 8GB Performance Review

Getting the Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal running while using a Radeon RX 480 8GB can see it could return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

And so following those results you could of course play this at 1080p, but this GPU is somewhat wasted at that resolution. We would suggest running Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal at 4K Ultra instead, where the Radeon RX 480 8GB would still get 200+ FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $0.26 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0.16 at 1440p Ultra.

This is a powerful graphics card for Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal and we can certainly recommend it to deliver 4K screen res at ultra settings. Get a system with at least 1GB of RAM though. The PC’s processor would also want to be around the Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz’s performance to get a smooth experience.

In summary, the Radeon RX 480 8GB is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 200+ FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 200+ frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 200+ FPS.
