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 5500 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5500 8GB Performance Review

We can see that when playing XCOM 2 with a Radeon RX 5500 8GB will get a very strong 114 FPS. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

At $0 per FPS at 4K, if we assume the GPU’s launch price. This GPU can play XCOM 2 at a respectable 37 frame rate on 4K Ultra.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this Radeon RX 5500 8GB card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play XCOM 2 at, because you can get 37 FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 62 frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 82 FPS at 1080p Ultra.
