1080p Performance - Is 60FPS achievable?
60+ FPS framerates are fairly achievable on PC, assuming that you are using newer PC hardware. Even AMD's ageing RX 480 can achieve 60+ FPS with lowered graphical settings, with the game's Medium preset being a good fit for that graphics card.
Framerates can vary wildly within Kingdom Hearts 3, just like the game's console version. With this in mind, Variable Refresh Rate displays are desirable for Kingdom Hearts 3 players, as this can mitigate the impact of performance dips and provide gamers with a much smoother overall gameplay experience.
At Max settings, graphics cards like AMD's RX Vega 56 and Nvidia's RTX 2060 are ideal for 1080p 60+ FPS gameplay, though these graphics cards will deliver average framerates in the 90-100 FPS range. This is where the utility of high refresh rate VRR monitors really comes into play, as Kingdom Hearts 3's variable performance makes perfect 60 FPS framerate locks difficult.
