Microsoft Flight Simulator 2015

Radeon RX 480X 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 480X 4GB Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old Radeon RX 480X 4GB while playing Microsoft Flight Simulator 2015 we quickly see it can return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX 480X 4GB overshadows the Microsoft Flight Simulator 2015 recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 197 frames per sec. Using the graphics card release price, this is a $2.28 cost per FPS and a $1.36 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

Crank things up is what we say. Ultra 4K is our recommended game settings for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2015, as long as you have 4GB of RAM or more.

To summarise, Radeon RX 480X 4GB graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Microsoft Flight Simulator 2015 screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 197 FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 200+ FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $1.04 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $1.36 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $2.28 per frame.
