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 RX Vega 64 Nitro+

Formerly AMD’s bestest best graphics card, the Radeon RX Vega 64 has since been supplanted by the Radeon 7. However, this old battleaxe isn’t done just yet, as it’s one of the few graphics cards available today that can deliver a smooth 60fps on Total War: Three Kingdoms‘ top Ultra settings.

I should note that Sapphire’s Nitro+ version isn’t actually available to buy any more, but with its high boost clock speed of 1611MHz, it was one of the fastest models available at one point. As a result, some results may vary if you’ve got a slightly slower version of the Vega 64, but you can still expect great performance across all three resolutions regardless of what individual model you happen to have.

Can I play this at 1920×1080?

A big thumbs up here. Whack it on Ultra and enjoy a smooth 64fps average. Go on, I dare you.

Can I play this at 2560×1440?

A second thumbs up here, but you’ll have to settle for High here if you can’t be bothered to fiddle with the settings a bit. You’ll still get a lovely average of 57fps here, but if you’re eyeballing sticking it up to Ultra, then you’ll probably have to deploy some of the tricks outlined on the first page of this Total War: Three Kingdoms graphics performance guide to give its default average frame rate of 44fps a bit of a bump.

Can I play this at 4K?

Oops, I appear to have run out of thumbs. Will a toe do instead? Either way, it’s a yes here, although Medium is probably about as good as it’s going to get here, thanks to an average of 44fps. You could probably haul High over the 30fps line by tinkering with the settings a bit, but if you’re really that fussed about High, then you might as well get a much smoother experience by playing at 2560×1440.
