XCOM 2

Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB Performance Review

Playing XCOM 2 on the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB, which is a 2 year old graphics card will likely get a very strong 186 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 XT 8GB will still get a solid 60 FPS.

With a system housing a graphics card like the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB and some 8GB RAM, we will see a strong 4K Ultra result in XCOM 2. Look for a processor like the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X CPU to go with this setup and Ultra is a sure thing.

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 60 FPS, 1440p will get 101 frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 133 FPS. Based around the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $3.00, 1440p frames cost $3.95 each and then the 4K costs $6.65 per frame.
