Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 15th Nov 2020

If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time then that is exactly what we will be doing in this review. Our challenge is in choosing the right priced PC items to get together an optimum build, which can meet the needs of Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time. In doing this we keep in mind our need to deliver the game reliably at the highest graphics settings, delivered via a 1080p screen resolution. Every day we run through our carefully chosen gaming hardware and cherry pick today’s lowest priced hardware components to help us achieve this optimum PC build list.

Let’s consider some of the interesting characteristics about this game, to help us build something that matches the sort of game we are considering to build a PC for. As we know it comes under the Action, Adventure genre style categories, which may well influence some of our peripheral selections, ensuring we consider the specifics for the games requirements. Looking at its development the game was built during 2020 and around that period and the devs themselves probably had hardware comparable to some of the latest hardware of that period. In terms of its relative hardware demanding position, it is considered by us as 40 placed game on our most demanding games of today list at least at the moment, although that list shifts regularly. Obviously these points help give us a better picture of what we may want in the build, but they are only supporting us because when we choose, it is the best priced components that will find their way into this build today.

Selecting The Right Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time build. With a Socket AM4 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Ryzen 5 2600X 6-Core 3.6GHz, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $170.98 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $119.99.

And with the motherboard costing $53.99 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. To provide a motherboard pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 is $53.99 on 25th Jun 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time At The Right Price

Our Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time built PC needs some solid performing RAM to enable us to meet the game’s system requirement expectations and achieve the desired FPS at ultra 1080p. The Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz is capable of meeting those needs, while complementing the Ryzen 5 2600X 6-Core 3.6GHz and GeForce RTX 2080 Asus Dual OC 8GB of our build and priced at a reasonable $52.99.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 85 FPS on High settings in Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time at 1080p. There may be some lower frame rates in some parts of the game, but we have chosen the components to get some solid frame rates. Increasing the quality in the game to Ultra, will see us still getting an FPS of 61.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 47 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 65 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War should get 99 when run on Ultra and this raises to 139 FPS on High. The popular Microsoft Flight Simulator gets a return of 34 FPS on Ultra and then up to 48 FPS when settings are dropped to High. Then there is World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 61 FPS run at Ultra and 85 frames on High.

An Alternative Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Why not switch out the graphics card in this build and replace it with a similarly powerful card from AMD. The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT PowerColor Dual Fan 8GB graphics card has a 8% worse performance variation compared to the currently chosen video card. As the best price point for an alternative manufacturer in this range it currently costs $389.99.
