Watch Dogs Legion

Radeon RX 490X 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 490X 8GB Performance Review

We can see that when playing Watch Dogs Legion with a Radeon RX 490X 8GB will return a consistently high 109 frame rate. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX 490X 8GB overshadows the Watch Dogs Legion recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 35 frames per sec. Using the graphics card release price, this is a $20.00 cost per FPS and a $11.86 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this Radeon RX 490X 8GB card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Watch Dogs Legion at, because you can get 35 FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 59 frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 78 FPS at 1080p Ultra.
