Total War: Three Kingdoms graphics performance: How to get the best settings on PC

Graphics cards go to war

Total War: Three Kingdoms PC graphics performance: Sapphire Radeon R9 270 Dual-X

I know I laugh a lot at the R9 270, but man alive, Total War: Three Kingdoms really does eat this graphics card for breakfast. It doesn’t help, of course, that the R9 270 only has a piddly 2GB of memory to its name, making it ill-equipped to deal with some of Three Kingdoms’ more advanced graphic settings, but it simply doesn’t have enough oomph to do a lot at 1920×1080.

As such, I’d probably recommend playing at a lower resolution such as 1280×720 if you happen to own this particular card, as the results below really ain’t very pretty.

Can I play this at 1920×1080?

Yes, but only just. Low produced a very smooth average of 64fps, but bumping it up to Medium saw the frame rate literally get chopped in half, tumbling own to just 33fps, with lows of 27fps.

Can I play this at 2560×1440?

I mean, technically you can, but does an average of 38fps on Low really count? I’m not so sure.

Can I play this at 4K?

Ahahahahahahahahahahahahaaa…. AHHHHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.
