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 550 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 550 4GB Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 3 year old Radeon RX 550 4GB while playing XCOM 2 we quickly see it can deliver a solid 66 FPS. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

Using the Radeon RX 550 4GB launch price as a benchmark, lets look at the cost per frame rate at various resolutions. 4K Ultra is $3.76, 1440p Ultra is $2.19 and 1080p Ultra costs $1.68. This graphics card is great at 1440p and here it gets 36FPS at Ultra, 50FPS at High and 75FPS on Medium settings. It might be worth moving up to 4K Medium to get 44FPS or perhaps High 4K to return 30FPS.

To summarise, XCOM 2 works very well with a Radeon RX 550 4GB. While it can comfortably perform at 1080p we know it is best served at 1440p resolutions and could possibly go up to 4K with some settings adjustments. Are you after bigger resolution with lower graphics quality or higher graphics quality and smaller res? Because here are a few figures that could help you choose your optimum Low Vs Ultra. 1080p Ultra setting: 47 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 75 FPS, 1440p High setting: 50 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 36 FPS.
