Total War: Three Kingdoms Laptop and Desktop Benchmarks

Great battles, high demands. Total War: Three Kingdoms pits you as one of twelve legendary warlords to unite a torn China under a new dynasty during an era of three empires. Do not underestimate the system requirements though, as the game’s graphically intensive battles push even the most powerful GPUs to their limits in UHD on the ultra preset.

Technology

Total War: Three Kingdoms allows graphics settings to be changed quickly and often without restarting the game. We were able to change the resolution, details and display quality creates without a restart, which is something we wish that we saw more of in modern triple-A titles.

Creative Assembly has separated the graphics settings into two tiers, the first of which contains options for adjusting the resolution and switching between four presets. You can also set a custom profile should you not like the low, medium, high or ultra-presets. You can check what settings the presets have changed by switching to the Advanced tab, which contains 24 settings. Not all affect the visual representation of the game though, with there also being options to turn mutilations on or off, and the size of blood spots among others.

We have included screenshots of the four presets below to demonstrate their visual differences, with shadows, foliage, army size, anti-aliasing and more varying significantly from the low to ultra preset. Presets do not affect the texture quality though, so you must adjust this separately. Naturally, you can change the graphics settings to your preferences.

Adjusting shadows, anti-aliasing, army size, and details have noticeable effects on large battles. Creative Assembly has also included FXAA and TAA anti-aliasing too, while texture filter can be adjusted from trilinear to 16x anisotropic.

Benchmark

Creative Assembly and Sega have included a built-in benchmark, which can be started in-game via the graphics menu. There is a benchmark summary too, a screenshot of which we have included below, that displays any changes in framerates during the 93-second benchmark. It also gives you the average, minimum and maximum FPS, although it only displays the latter two at the end of the benchmark. We found the ability to adjust the resolution and graphics settings without having to restart the game particularly useful here as it allowed us to find the optimal settings for our various systems quickly.

Results

HD (1,280 x 720)

Sega states that Total War: Three Kingdoms needs at least an Intel UHD Graphics 620 to play the game smoothly at 1,280 x 720 on the low preset. However, even the HD Graphics 630 only averages 38 FPS and dips to a minimum of 32 FPS, which we would not call smooth. Interestingly, the HD Graphics 630 averages almost 30% more than the NVIDIA GeForce 920M, despite the latter being a dedicated GPU. We suspect that the CPU is a bottleneck here, with the GeForce 920M being paired with a Celeron 2970M processor, a much slower CPU than the Core i7 7700HQ in our HD Graphics 630 test system. Overall, we would recommend at least a GeForce 940M for playing Total War: Three Kingdoms at these settings.

FHD (1,920 x 1,080)

You will need to step up to a GeForce GTX 1050 if you want to play the game in 1080p at the medium preset on a laptop though, as the GeForce 940M averages a lowly 16.6 FPS. Something like the GeForce GTX 965M will offer around 36 FPS, but this will not be a particularly enjoyable gaming experience.

The GeForce GTX 1050 averages a playable 31 FPS on the high preset, although it dips as low as 13 FPS, which will look choppy. The Radeon RX 480 is powerful enough to play the game at decent FPS, but we would recommend at least a GeForce GTX 1070 Ti for consistent 60 FPS gaming. Likewise, only a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti or better will maintain at least 60 FPS on the ultra preset.

QHD (2,560 x 1,440) & UHD (3,840 x 2,160)

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti can handle the game in QHD on the ultra preset too, but you will need a Titan or RTX 20 GPU for playing Total War: Three Kingdoms in 4K, as the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti can only average 30.6 FPS. Currently, only RTX 20 series laptop GPUs can play the game in QHD on the ultra preset too.

Please note:

Gaming tests are often time-consuming and are hampered by activation or installation limits. Hence, we can currently only provide some of the benchmarks for Total War: Three Kingdoms. We shall update this article with more GPUs in the coming days and weeks.

5Stutters – This game is very likely to stutter and have poor frame rates. Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, average frame rates are expected to fall below 25fps
May Stutter – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, stutters and poor frame rates are expected.
30Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 25fps
40Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 35fps
60Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 58fps
May Run Fluently – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, fluent frame rates are expected.
?Uncertain – This graphics card experienced unexpected performance issues during testing for this game. A slower card may be able to achieve better and more consistent frame rates than this particular GPU running the same benchmark scene.
Uncertain – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game and no reliable interpolation can be made based on the performances of surrounding cards of the same class or family.
The value in the fields displays the average frame rate of all values in the database. Move your cursor over the value to see individual results.
