Half-Life 3

Radeon RX 5800 XT

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5800 XT Performance Review

The experience of playing Half-Life 3 through a Radeon RX 5800 XT is going to deliver a solid 87 FPS. Those frames are achieved on Half-Life 3 when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

Radeon RX 5800 XT can run at 47 FPS at 1440p on Ultra graphics settings, but increasing resolution to 4K for better visuals can be achieved on Medium graphics setting, returning 59FPS. Using the GPU release price we can see the cost per frame rate on 1440p Ultra costs $0 compared to the Medium graphics setting at 4K costs $0 per FPS.

In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the Radeon RX 5800 XT. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 62 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Half-Life 3 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 125 FPS or the Medium returning 98 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 66 FPS and then Ultra gets 47 FPS.
