Garry's Mod (officially abbreviated to GMod) is a sandbox physics game that allows the player to manipulate objects and experiment with physics using the Source engine. Garry's Mod has been available on Steam's content delivery service since November 29, 2006. rnDespite being a standalone game, Garry's Mod requires the user to own at least one game on Steam based on the Source engine, such as Half-Life 2, Counter-Strike: Source, Portal 2, or Team Fortress 2. It is also commonly used for the creation and publishing of videos on YouTube, mainly from Team Fortress 2, Half-Life 2, Portal and Left 4 Dead.

Garrys Mod

Radeon RX 5950

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5950 Performance Review

Booting up Garrys Mod with the 1 year old Radeon RX 5950 looks like it will return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Those frames are achieved on Garrys Mod when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX 5950 overshadows the Garrys Mod recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 200+ frames per sec. Using the graphics card release price, this is a $0 cost per FPS and a $0 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

Crank things up is what we say. Ultra 4K is our recommended game settings for Garrys Mod, as long as you have 1GB of RAM or more. A good processor component to help with these settings would be the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X.

To summarise, this is an easy one, the Radeon RX 5950 solution can play Garrys Mod at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 200+ frame rate, whereby we see 200+ frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 200+ frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.
