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 5600 XT 6GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB Performance Review

The experience of playing Quake IV through a 1 year old Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB is going to get a very strong 200+ FPS. Those frames are achieved on Quake IV when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on 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 5600 XT 6GB will still get a solid 200+ FPS.

With a system housing a graphics card like the Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB and some 0.512GB RAM, we will see a strong 4K Ultra result in Quake IV. Look for a processor like the CPU to go with this setup and Ultra is a sure thing.

To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB card will play Quake IV at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 200+ frame rate, 1440p can deliver 200+ FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 200+ frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $0.07, 1440p costs $0.10 and 4K costs $0.16.
