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 550 2GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 550 2GB Performance Review

Running a Radeon RX 550 2GB to play Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal shows us that we expect it to return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

Following on from those 1920x1080 screen FPS, we know this GPU is of a much higher performance than the recommended system specs. Even 4K Ultra returns 200+ FPS on Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal. But it’s still worth considering the $0.16 per Ultra 4K FPS you would get compared to the $0.09 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 AMD Ryzen R3 1200X’s performance to get a smooth experience.

To summarise, this game runs easily using this graphics card at all resolutions. Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal gets 200+ FPS at 4K Ultra costing $0.16 per frame. But if that doesnt feel right for you then you can drop the graphics setting down to High for 200+ FPS costing $0.11 per frame. Otherwise you can get some great performance by moving down a resolution bracket to 1440p. 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p costing $0.09 per frame or 1440p High gets 200+ FPS costing $0.07 per frame.
