Prison Architect packshot image
"The IGF has been pretty much front and center for us over the last couple of months. We announced last week that our next game will be called Prison Architect and is about building Maximum Security Prisons. Chris started work on Prison Architect in December of 2010 and around July this year we were playing the latest build and suddenly realised that we were much further along then we thought. It would need a massive push, but we could submit a build for the 2012 competition. We both knew immediately that we wanted to do it. Prison Architect was a return to our roots, a uniquely original PC game built by a tiny team and an IGF submission was exactly the right milestone to confirm to ourselves that we were back on the right track. Chris submitted Prison Architect last week and we’ve got our fingers crossed.... Even if we don’t pick up any nominations we know we’ll be there on the night, and we’ll have a great time. Win or lose, they’ll still be a hell of an after-party. Yes, there is something special about the IGF."

Prison Architect

GeForce GTX 1060

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old GeForce GTX 1060 while playing Prison Architect 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 Prison Architect 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 1060 will still get a solid 156 FPS.

With a system housing a graphics card like the GeForce GTX 1060 and some 4GB RAM, we will see a strong 4K Ultra result in Prison Architect. Look for a processor like the Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz CPU to go with this setup and Ultra is a sure thing.

To summarise, GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Prison Architect screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 156 FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 200+ FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $0.73 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $0.95 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $1.60 per frame.
