4 Powerful Graphics Cards Vs One of The Most Unoptimized PC Games Of All Time

PC gaming definitely has it's quirks, but most issues can be solved either with a patch, or, as a last resort, a hardware upgrade. Sometimes that isn't even enough and after re-discovering my passion for an one specific older title, I quickly found out that nothing in my hardware collection could run it.

This is the story of Saints Row 2 on the PC. Possibly the most unoptimized PC port available.

System Specs:
Ryzen 5 1600 @3.2GHz
8GB DDR4 2400MHz
8800 GTS | HD 7950 | ASUS MARS II | GTX 1060 | GTX 1070
Corsair CX550M PSU
Windows 10

  • Dan The Gamer

    This is how devs optimize for the 1050 ti

  • Pasta Sarmonella E-Specialé

    Didn´t SR2 come in 2008?

  • dcannon121

    Saints row 2 runs fine on my computer, wat

  • Relyk Terrah

    A 1080ti gets stable 60FPS on this game, but no more than that.

  • Vegetarian Potato

    My laptop with a 770 in it ran it decently, dunno what you’re talking about sorry

  • Prince Dreddly

    I can emulate Skate 3 in 1080p at 90FPS.But the pc version of GTA:SA didn't go over 7FPS at 720p.I5-8600k16GB RamGTX 1060 3GB

  • Mr Red

    all hail to gentleman of the row

  • Batman 1562

    so i see all these people saying performance on pc Saints Row 2 is bad. When i played it on my 5 year old system which was made in 2012 it played just fine.

  • Arnav Behari

    May I suggest vanilla ac unity

  • 1BigDaDo

    this is done to keep the game on Xbox they have a deal with Xbox and get a cut from sales from each other

  • Williams2809

    Holy fuck, you talk too fucking much. Just do the test.

  • GiantBananaHoldingAGrapeFilledHotpocket

    Fix:Just play GTA 5.

  • Lee Andrei

    Saint's row 2? More like Saint's Slow 2

  • Cake Mix

    Saints row the third is WAY better optimized than saints row 2

  • adi imamovic

    Most unoptimized game? Looks like someone never played STALKER lost alpha

  • Bram

    Problem is that the Xbox 360 uses a completely different architecture (PowerPC), which is why bad ports will run like shit on most PCs (x86 / x86_64)


    I have a 1050 and i can run this game great so idk what ur talking about

  • Music_Master

    Dam is this video about quad SLI?

  • raduque

    The problem with SR2 is the streaming engine. Assets were not optimized to be read from the HDD, instead it was meant to be read from a DVD disc. It would probably be playable using an SSD, but I played it on an overclocked c2d e6300 @ 2.8ghz and overclocked gtx460 768mb and it was quite playable...at 1680x1050.

  • The Spark

    My mother in law is unoptimized as well and no GPU will ever render her gracefully.

  • i sexually identify as a nut button

    i thought the game you were talking about in the title was pubg lol

  • Sentlee

    This was my birthday.

  • ToJa 2002

    On the thumbnail, it looks like there is a black car out of Legos

  • Milolo

    My game is always at 20fps even at the lowest settings, doesn't get better or worse changing settings and I don't have a solution

  • Mr. Sandman

    Stop right there!3:00 - DirectX compatible display capable of 1024x768 in 32-bit color. What kind of 1080p you talking about?

  • Christopher Bollinger

    I bet none of these gpus could run garfield kart well.

  • Mr. Penguin

    weird.. didn't have problems running saints row 2 when i played it last year...

  • AfterEffectsGamer

    Reppin the ryzen cpu. My nigga

  • lil trn

    My brother brought his external HDD and we installed some games on my pc, one of it was saints row 2 a aaaand on my R9 390 it ran at like 15 fpsunplayable

  • Sunny Roy

    The annoyance level of his voice is infinity

  • DupeTheBarrel

    People said my gaming pc sucked, I told them I could run saints row 2 on the highest settings at 60fps

  • IOS Tutorials

    This is why i like SR3

  • n00bie

    Wait, didn’t min spec say 768p?

  • JanGamez

    60 fps -but its not that playable...

  • Tomas Ruiz

    Why do you pronounce "Dark Sauce" instead of "Dark souls"



  • Marlon Brans

    Hmm i see you got ryzen got a question i feel like i made a mistake i bought a ryzen 5 1500x over a ryzen 5 1600 because some one told me (since i dont like overclocking) if i dont overclock the 1500x would prob run better then 1600 because my cores are rated at 3.8 instead of 3.2 is this true?? Without overclocking did i pick the right cpu for me? I mainly game

  • Dat Boii

    So is this gta sa or what

  • Alex31YTB

    Where is Minecraft?Its an preatty unpreatty game talking about optimization

  • Rahul Raj

    I hope GTA 6 would not be like GTA 4 otherwise 2 way sli of 1080ti s won't provide a smooth experience even at 1080p

  • astorothcr

    Saints Row 2's 35 FPS is nothing comparing to the sixth installment of the beloved Chinese RPG franchise "Legend of Sword and Fairy". Its poor optimization is so notorious, it became a meme, and this installment was remembered forever as "Titanfall", since 4-way GTX Titan SLI would struggle to run the game on 30 FPS. Considering this is a PC only game, in one of the most renowned franchises, made by a very well established studio that dates back to 1990s, the game is such a massive joke overlooked by western gaming community.


    I don't know why people say Saints Row 2 was the worst PC port. I downloaded it, played it, completed, ran mods and so on, and didn't run into any problems.

  • ThierryTheuns

    My gaming laptop back in the day ran it fine

  • MonoType

    Mafia III I’m guessing
