In a desperate war for Earth's survival against an unrelenting alien enemy, the only way to defeat them is to become one of them. Earth is under siege by the Strogg, a barbaric alien race moving through the universe consuming, recycling and annihilating any civilization in their path. In a desperate attempt to survive, an armada of Earth's finest warriors is sent to take the battle to the Strogg home planet. You are Matthew Kane, an elite member of Rhino Squad and Earth's valiant invasion force. Fight alone, with your squad, or in hover tanks and mechanized walkers as you engage in a heroic mission to the heart of the Strogg war machine. Battle through early missions as a deadly marine, then after your capture, as a marine-turned-Strogg with enhanced abilities and the power to turn the tide of the war.

Quake IV

Radeon RX 570 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 570 4GB Performance Review

Getting the Quake IV running while using a Radeon RX 570 4GB can see it could return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

And so following those results you could of course play this at 1080p, but this GPU is somewhat wasted at that resolution. We would suggest running Quake IV at 4K Ultra instead, where the Radeon RX 570 4GB would still get 200+ FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $0.15 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0.09 at 1440p Ultra.

This is a powerful graphics card for Quake IV and we can certainly recommend it to deliver 4K screen res at ultra settings. Get a system with at least 0.512GB of RAM though. The PC’s processor would also want to be around the Intel Core i5-7400 3.0GHz’s performance to get a smooth experience.

In summary, the Radeon RX 570 4GB is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for Quake IV, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 200+ FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 200+ frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 200+ FPS.
