Overwatch

Radeon RX 5500 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5500 8GB Performance Review

We can see that when playing Overwatch with a Radeon RX 5500 8GB will get a very strong 136 FPS. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

At $0 per FPS at 4K, if we assume the GPU’s launch price. This GPU can play Overwatch at a respectable 44 frame rate on 4K Ultra.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this Radeon RX 5500 8GB card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Overwatch at, because you can get 44 FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 74 frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 97 FPS at 1080p Ultra.
