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 Vega 64 Air XT 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB Performance Review

The experience of playing XCOM 2 through a 3 year old Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB is going to return a consistently high 166 frame rate. Those frames are achieved on XCOM 2 when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

Playing XCOM 2 on Ultra 4k is certainly possible with this graphics card and we expect it will return around 54 frames per second at that top scale resolution.

To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB card will play XCOM 2 at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 54 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 90 FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 119 frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $3.35, 1440p costs $4.43 and 4K costs $7.39.
