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 5800 XT

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5800 XT Performance Review

The experience of playing XCOM 2 through a Radeon RX 5800 XT is going to return a consistently high 190 frame rate. Those frames are achieved on XCOM 2 when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX 5800 XT overshadows the XCOM 2 recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 62 frames per sec. Using the graphics card release price, this is a $0 cost per FPS and a $0 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

Crank things up is what we say. Ultra 4K is our recommended game settings for XCOM 2, as long as you have 8GB of RAM or more. A good processor component to help with these settings would be the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X.

In summary, if you are looking to play XCOM 2 in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The Radeon RX 5800 XT can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 136 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 103 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 62 FPS in Ultra as well.
