XCOM2 continues the story from XCOM: Enemy Unknown, assuming the player lost the fight against the alien menace. Assuming the role of a guerilla resistance task forced, XCOM 2 is a sci-fi turn-based strategy and base builder.

XCOM 2

Radeon RX 580 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 580 8GB Performance Review

The experience of playing XCOM 2 through a Radeon RX 580 8GB is going to return a consistently high 117 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 XCOM 2 at 4K Ultra instead, where the Radeon RX 580 8GB would still get 38 FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $0 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0 at 1440p Ultra.

In summary, if you are looking to play XCOM 2 in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The Radeon RX 580 8GB can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 84 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 64 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 38 FPS in Ultra as well.
