Yakuza Kiwami 2 PC Performance Review

CPU Performance - Will Yakuza make your CPU scream? 

In our 1080p testing, we found that Yakuza Kiwami 2 only offered a tiny bit more performance with an RTX 2080 Ti than when using an RTX 2060 graphics card, showcasing an extreme limitation to game performance based on CPU specs. 

In general, Yakuza Kiwami 2 loves PCs with more CPU cores, with the game finding ideal performance levels on Ryzen with six cores or more and ideal performance levels on our Intel system with 4 cores/8 threads or more. Even then, higher levels of single-threaded CPU performance would be preferable on either setup. In general, Yakuza prefers our Intel setup to our AMD setup. 

On most systems, playing Yakuza Kiwami 2 at over 100FPS would be too challenging for most modern processors, with only Intel's 5GHz Kaby Lake i7 or higher processors standing a chance. Yakuza may be able to use a lot of CPU cores/threads, but that doesn't mean that the game isn't primarily single-thread limited.
