Garrys Mod

Radeon RX 5500 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5500 8GB Performance Review

We can see that when playing Garrys Mod with a Radeon RX 5500 8GB will get a very strong 200+ FPS. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

At $0 per FPS at 4K, if we assume the GPU’s launch price. This GPU can play Garrys Mod at a respectable 200+ frame rate on 4K Ultra.

The Radeon RX 5500 8GB along with the right system memory, 1GB, is very capable of getting top FPS results even at 4K Ultra graphics settings. We would recommend 4K as the way to go here.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this Radeon RX 5500 8GB card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Garrys Mod 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.
