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 5700 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5700 8GB Performance Review

Booting up XCOM 2 with the 2 year old Radeon RX 5700 8GB looks like it will get a very strong 172 FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to XCOM 2 rec requirements, it would make more sense if you pushed it up to 1440p or 4K, where even at Ultra 4K graphics settings the Radeon RX 5700 8GB will still get a solid 56 FPS.

To summarise, this is an easy one, the Radeon RX 5700 8GB solution can play XCOM 2 at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 56 frame rate, whereby we see 93 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 123 frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $2.84, 1440p costs $3.75 and 4K costs $6.23.
