XCOM 2

Radeon RX 480 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 480 4GB Performance Review

Playing XCOM 2 on the Radeon RX 480 4GB, which is a 5 year old graphics card will likely return a consistently high 109 frame rate. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

Following on from those 1920x1080 screen FPS, we know this GPU is of a much higher performance than the recommended system specs. Even 4K Ultra returns 35 FPS on XCOM 2. But it’s still worth considering the $5.69 per Ultra 4K FPS you would get compared to the $3.37 at 1440p Ultra.

To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding XCOM 2 frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 35 FPS, 1440p will get 59 frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 78 FPS. Based around the Radeon RX 480 4GB launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $2.55, 1440p frames cost $3.37 each and then the 4K costs $5.69 per frame.
