The new and popular title is daunting from a graphics point of view. What do you need really? As a result, how will it perform on a selection of different graphics cards? This review will cover all these basics and then more so you know what choice to make either graphics card or in-game settings wise.
Above, the time demo we use to measure game performance, this is a generic recording not specifically done with the graphics card solution tested in this article.

And below a comparative chart, any card at 19x12 will get a very rough beating from the game. And also let me just state... DX11 / HQ Texture mode and Ultra settings are not a requirement, but as a PC gamer I expect you like something better than console quality, right?
So our image quality settings are a bit too much for our card. You will need to drop down from ultra to High quality mode with preferably no AA to be able to play the title with more acceptable performance. This was to be expected of course.
