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 5700 XT 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB Performance Review

Playing Quake IV on the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB, which is a 2 year old graphics card will likely 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 Quake IV rec requirements, it would make more sense if you pushed it up to 1440p or 4K, where even at Ultra 4K graphics settings the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB will still get a solid 200+ FPS.

With a system housing a graphics card like the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB and some 0.512GB RAM, we will see a strong 4K Ultra result in Quake IV. Look for a processor like the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X CPU to go with this setup and Ultra is a sure thing.

To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding Quake IV frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 200+ FPS, 1440p will get 200+ frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 200+ FPS. Based around the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $0.09, 1440p frames cost $0.12 each and then the 4K costs $0.19 per frame.
