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 5950 XT

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5950 XT Performance Review

Playing XCOM 2 on the Radeon RX 5950 XT, which is a 1 year old graphics card will likely return a consistently high 200+ 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 5950 XT overshadows the XCOM 2 recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 65 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.

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 65 FPS, 1440p will get 110 frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 144 FPS. Based around the Radeon RX 5950 XT launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $0, 1440p frames cost $0 each and then the 4K costs $0 per frame.
