The least demanding scenario tested was 1080p with medium quality settings as unfortunately with low quality settings the game is still crashing for me. In this configuration, the Radeon R9 290 Hawaii GPU switched over to using AMDGPU+RADV was running this game fine at around 60 FPS. The R7 370 / R9 270X / HD 7950 GCN 1.0 parts were running at under 40 FPS for the demanding Fallen Gates Battle scene, but in some of the lesser demanding areas of the game the performance may be more playable. The Radeon R9 285 and GeForce GTX 680, which Feral lists as the official minimum GPU requirements, were running around 45 FPS.

The older GPUs do have trouble with this modern Vulkan-powered Linux game at high quality settings with a 1080p resolution.

For ultra quality settings, you really need a Vega or GeForce GTX 1070 or better for the best gaming experience. The GCN 1.0/1.1 hardware could still render correctly with RADV but the performance was just way too slow.
