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 470 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 470 4GB Performance Review

Booting up Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal with the 5 year old Radeon RX 470 4GB looks like it will return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX 470 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 $0.25 cost per FPS and a $0.15 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. A good processor component to help with these settings would be the Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz.

To summarise, this is an easy one, the Radeon RX 470 4GB solution can play Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 200+ frame rate, whereby we see 200+ frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 200+ frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $0.11, 1440p costs $0.15 and 4K costs $0.25.
