Total War THREE KINGDOMS: PC Performance Benchmarks for Graphics Cards and Processors

BASIC INFORMATION ON THE GAME

Three Kingdoms 2019 05 19 14 48 20 487

Release Date : May 23, 2019
Genre : RTS
Developer : The Creative Assembly
Publisher/Distributor : SEGA

Total War: Three Kingdoms takes place in the year 190 in China, engulfed in turmoil. The Han Empire is ruled by an infant emperor who is, in fact, a puppet of the cruel and ruthless warlord Dong Zhuo. Three warlord heroes from great families unite to fight against the tyrant, and now the future of China is in their hands. The main thing is that their personal ambitions are not destroyed.

THE GRAFICAL PART

In this subsection of our review, the main graphical aspects of this game are revealed. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphics settings and the quality of the development of the main visual aspects. 

SUPPORTED OC AND GRAPHICS API

Total War THREE KINGDOMS is supported on Windows 7/8 and  Windows  10.

steam

The priority and primary graphics API for Total War THREE KINGDOMS is DX11 .

GAME ENGINE

Total War THREE KINGDOMS is based on the Warscape+ game engine. Warscape is a game engine developed by the British company The Creative Assembly for internal use in their games in the Total War series. Warscape is intended for use only on personal computers running Microsoft Windows. The first game to use Warscape, Empire: Total War, the fifth game in the Total War series, was released on March 3, 2009.

TheCreativeAssembly

Beginning with Rome: Total War in 2004, the Total War games used the Total War engine, which was used until Medieval II: Total War - Kingdoms in 2007. After that, it was decided to create a new engine - "Warscape", the first game on which was "Empire: Total War" in 2009. During the development of Napoleon: Total War, the engine was "well polished," Craig Laycock of The Creative Assembly said in an interview with Armchair General. However, during the development of Total War: Shogun 2, the engine was further reworked and significantly improved. The main innovation was support for DirectX 11 and some AMD technologies: Eyefinity and CrossFireX.  

Three Kingdoms 2019 05 19 14 50 38 265

"Total War: Shogun 2" was promoted by AMD as part of a marketing campaign for HD 6xxx series graphics cards as a game that actively uses the capabilities of DirectX 11. However, a few days before the release of the game, it became known that it would not contain DX11 mode. The developers stated that they did not have time to finalize this mode, and it will be released later as a patch. The heavily modified Warscape engine in Total War: Rome 2 allows you to see exotic cities in great detail, and the new camera makes it possible to observe the battlefield from any angle.

In Total War Warhammer, the developers moved away from the 32-bit engine and the game runs in 64-bit mode by default, which means it will no longer be limited to two gigabytes of allocated RAM.

GRAPHICS SETTINGS

RAGE 2 has a wide range of graphics settings. Both basic and advanced settings are available to us.

Below we have provided screenshots of the game at various graphics settings, where our readers can see the difference between the minimum and maximum graphics quality settings. 

DIFFERENT QUALITY MODES

The difference between the various settings is visible to the naked eye.

COMPARISON OF SMOOTHING MODES

TAA is the best anti-aliasing in the game.

GENERAL VISUAL DESIGN AND GAME PHYSICS

Total War is a leader in the RTS genre, and, of course, Total War THREE KINGDOMS has a fairly advanced graphical component:
