Rise of Nations: Gold Edition

Radeon RX 550 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 550 4GB Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old Radeon RX 550 4GB while playing Rise of Nations: Gold Edition we quickly see it can return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

Following on from those 1920x1080 screen FPS, we know this GPU is of a much higher performance than the recommended system specs. Even 4K Ultra returns 200+ FPS on Rise of Nations: Gold Edition. But it’s still worth considering the $0.02 per Ultra 4K FPS you would get compared to the $0.01 at 1440p Ultra.

This is a powerful graphics card for Rise of Nations: Gold Edition 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. The PC’s processor would also want to be around the AMD Ryzen R3 1200X’s performance to get a smooth experience.

To summarise, Radeon RX 550 4GB graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Rise of Nations: Gold Edition screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 200+ FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 200+ FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $0.01 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $0.01 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $0.02 per frame.
