Total War: Three Kingdoms PC Performance Review

What about Low-end hardware?
Recent entries in the Total War series pride themselves on being scalable, enabling players to enjoy the title on systems that range from beastly Ultra-high-end gaming PCs to mid-range notebooks. This means that older graphics cards like AMD's R9 380 and Nvidia's GTX 960 are perfectly usable when playing Total War: Three Kingdoms.
In Battle Mode, both of these graphics cards fail to hit out 30+ FPS minimum FPS target when using Three Kingdoms' high preset, but at medium, both graphics cards maintain solid 40+ FPS framerates at 1080p. Not bad for these ageing mid-range graphics cards.
In Three Kingdoms' campaign mode we see a similar trend to battle mode, with the only major difference being how Nvidia's GTX 960 storms past the Radeon R9 380. Again, we see that Total War: Three Kingdoms has a clear preference for Nvidia graphics cards.
