Area 51 packshot image
An unknown virus has been released inside Area 51, and Team Bravo has been assigned to clean it up. Once inside, the team discovers that the virus turns people into murderous mutants, and anyone killed by a mutant turns into a mutant themselves. As the game progresses, members of Team Bravo (and soldiers Ethan meets) are killed one by one by mutants, until only Ethan Cole, the player character, is left alive. Ethan is later bitten by a mutant, slowly turning him into a mutant.rnrn

Area 51

Radeon RX 590 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 590 8GB Performance Review

We can see that when playing Area 51 with a Radeon RX 590 8GB will return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

And so following those results you could of course play this at 1080p, but this GPU is somewhat wasted at that resolution. We would suggest running Area 51 at 4K Ultra instead, where the Radeon RX 590 8GB would still get 200+ FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $0.18 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0.11 at 1440p Ultra.

This is a powerful graphics card for Area 51 and we can certainly recommend it to deliver 4K screen res at ultra settings. Get a system with at least 0.512GB of RAM though.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this Radeon RX 590 8GB card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Area 51 at, because you can get 200+ FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 200+ frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 200+ FPS at 1080p Ultra.
