Saints Row 3, also known as Saints Row The Third, is a third-person shooter video game being developed by Volition, Inc. and to be published by THQ for the Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable systems. It is the third title in the Saints Row series, after the release of Saints Row 2 in 2008. It is currently set to be released during Q3/Q4 2011. The game was set to debut at E3 2010 but did not appear to allow developer Volition to rebuild parts of the game. Spike's Video Game Awards in December 2010 were set to include a first look at the game, but developer Volition instead showed their new game, a collaboration with Guillermo Del Toro, inSANE.

Saints Row 3

GeForce GTX 1050

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1050 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 5 year old GeForce GTX 1050 while playing Saints Row 3 we quickly see it can get a very strong 200+ FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to Saints Row 3 rec requirements, it would make more sense if you pushed it up to 1440p or 4K, where even at Ultra 4K graphics settings the GeForce GTX 1050 will still get a solid 73 FPS.

With a system housing a graphics card like the GeForce GTX 1050 and some 4GB RAM, we will see a strong 4K Ultra result in Saints Row 3. Look for a processor like the Intel Core i5-6500 3.2GHz CPU to go with this setup and Ultra is a sure thing.

To summarise, GeForce GTX 1050 graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Saints Row 3 screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 73 FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 123 FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 162 FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $0.93 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $1.22 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $2.05 per frame.
