Total War: Three Kingdoms PC graphics performance: EVGA GeForce GTX 1070Ti SC Gaming

Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1070 Ti might seem a bit redundant for new graphics card buyers when the equally fast but significantly cheaper RTX 2060 now exists, but this is still a mighty fine graphics card in its own right for playing Total War: Three Kingdoms.

Indeed, the results from my EVGA SC Gaming model should be pretty uniform across all GTX 1070 Ti cards out there, thanks to Nvidia’s weird rule about not letting third party manufacturers fiddle with their base and boost clock speeds for some reason. I mean, this EVGA card can technically skirt round that issue with its Precision Boost software, but for the sake of keeping everything nice and fair, I tested it using its default speeds of 1607MHz and 1683MHz.

Can I play this at 1920×1080?

Affirmative, general, and you can get a lovely smooth average of 64fps on Ultra for your trouble, too. If you’ve got a high refresh rate monitor, on the other hand, you might want to lower the quality down to High and enjoy an even silkier journey into battle with an average of 86fps.

Can I play this at 2560×1440?

Ready the archers, because it is go time. 55fps on High is arguably the smoothest angle of attack here, but an average of 42fps on Ultra is pretty feasible as well provided you don’t mind the odd stutter down to 37-odd fps when the camera gets up close and personal with the tip of your spears. Or you could use some of the tips outlined on the first page of this Total War: Three Kingdoms graphics performance guide to help raise that average a bit higher.

Can I play this at 4K?

File in, soldiers, because Medium‘s average of 43fps is definitely the best you’re going to get here without admitting defeat and going for Low and its ugly but very smooth average of 73fps. High, sadly, is a lost cause, averaging just 26fps overall.
