Baldurs Gate 3

Radeon RX 5500 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5500 8GB Performance Review

We can see that when playing Baldurs Gate 3 with a Radeon RX 5500 8GB will return a reliable 69 FPS. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

The 37 FPS on 1440p ultra setting seems to be a very good choice for running this game with this GPU. But it can also be pushed up to 4K, should you wish, where it can get 31FPS on High 4K or drop it to Medium 4K to get 46 FPS. For the 4K High setting it would cost $0 per FPS, or drop to $0 for each frame on Medium 4K.

To summarise, while it's not always a sure thing, this GPU certainly seems capable of delivering FPS in Baldurs Gate 3. It feels that the Radeon RX 5500 8GB is going to be best run at 1440p for suitable frame rates, and while it still might struggle a little at Ultra 1440p, it will certainly do well in this resolution range. Here are some Low Vs Ultra frame rates that we can consider at 1440p. Low setting: 99 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 78 FPS, 1440p High setting: 52 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 37 FPS.
