Graphics cards go to war

Total War: Three Kingdoms PC graphics performance: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080

Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080 is one of the most powerful graphics cards you can buy today – but it’s also not that much faster than Nvidia’s GTX 1080 Ti. Thus, in the continued absence of having my very own GTX 1080 Ti to test, this RTX card is arguably the next best thing when it comes to working out what kind of performance you can expect from Total War: Three Kingdoms.

Once again, I’ve got the Founders Edition on test here, which has a base clock speed of 1515MHz and a boost clock speed of 1800MHz. This is pretty typical of what you’ll find on other RTX 2080 cards out there, so these results should be pretty bang on regardless of what type of card you have. I should also note, however, that these results were obtained with my Core i5 CPU, which acts as a bottleneck when playing at 1080p, so those with Core i7 or Ryzen 7 CPUs may well see much faster speeds at this resolution compared to what I’ve outlined below. As you’ll see, though, it’s not like it’s going to make a huge amount of difference.

Can I play this at 1920×1080?

But of course. Whack it up on Ultra and enjoy a smooth average of 84fps.

Can I play this at 2560×1440?

Does an average of 64fps on Ultra sound playable enough for you?

Can I play this at 4K?

Now we’re talking. Medium will get you the smoothest speeds with an average of 67fps, but I reckon High is within reach as well here thanks to an average of 43fps. There were still a couple of lows down to 37fps, but with peaks of 49fps, you should still get a pretty smooth ride for the majority of your battle time – especially if you apply some of the settings tweaks I talked about on the first page of this Total War: Three Kingdoms graphics performance guide.
