XCOM 2

Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB Performance Review

Getting the XCOM 2 running while using a Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB can see it could get a very strong 118 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 38 frame rate on 4K Ultra.

In summary, the Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for XCOM 2, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 84 FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 64 frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 38 FPS.
