Overwatch

Radeon RX 570 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 570 8GB Performance Review

Booting up Overwatch with the 3 year old Radeon RX 570 8GB looks like it will return a consistently high 125 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 Overwatch at 4K Ultra instead, where the Radeon RX 570 8GB would still get 40 FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $4.50 per Ultra 4K FPS or $2.65 at 1440p Ultra.

To summarise, this is an easy one, the Radeon RX 570 8GB solution can play Overwatch at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 40 frame rate, whereby we see 68 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 89 frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $2.02, 1440p costs $2.65 and 4K costs $4.50.
