Dark Light

I am around 2 hours into Shadow Warrior 2 and it is one of the more fun games I have played this year. The best part about the game is the gameplay and the second best part about the game is the port. The game runs like a dream, and I have tried it on both- A considerably high end PC and a considerably low end PC. Due to time constraints I wasn’t able to quantify benchmarking the game on the lower end PC, and wasn’t able to draft the graphs, but on the higher end PC I did record the average, minimum and maximum FPS. Here are the configs of my PCs:

Low End PC High End PC
CPU i3-2100 i5-6500
GPU AMD HD 7770 Nvidia GTX 1070
RAM 4 GB DDR3, 1333 MHz 8 GB DDR4, 2133 MHz
Motherboard Compatible Motherboard Asus Z170-K

AS you can see, the lower end PC, is quite low end. When I had bought the whole system back in around 2011-12, this was yet a considerably low end PC, and while I can’t quantify the number, the game did run above 30 fps on a mixture of high-medium settings at 900p. As for the high end PC (Don’t scrutinize me for getting the i5-6500, I saved a few bucks and am looking to buy the next gen i5-7600K), I was getting the following numbers:


The minimum fps is at 42 probably because at some point one of my components bottle-necked (Mostly the CPU or RAM), but I was not able to notice it, so that’s alright. As for the options available in the graphics menu, there are lots of them and just like the minimum system requirements there is a preset for 1 GB of VRAM as well. With the GTX 1070, Ultra was a no brainer, though with the HD 7770, on 900p, I was able to push it to High on 900p and get a somewhat stable 30 fps.

As for the review of the game, we will try to get it out as soon as possible, probably, by this Sunday. For now here is the benchmark. Let us know what you think about the post in the comments below.
