Pioneer is a space adventure game set in our galaxy at the turn of the 31st century.
The game is open-ended, and you are free to eke out whatever kind of space-faring existence you can think of. Look for fame or fortune by exploring the millions of star systems. Turn to a life of crime as a pirate, smuggler or bounty hunter. Forge and break alliances with the various factions fighting for power, freedom or self-determination. The universe is whatever you make of it.
Pioneer is under constant development and has a friendly community of players, modders and developers around it. We release a new version almost every day. We'd love for you to try it and make part of the galaxy your own!

Pioneer

Radeon RX 590 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 590 8GB Performance Review

We can see that when playing Pioneer 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 Pioneer 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 $0.79 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0.47 at 1440p Ultra.

This is a powerful graphics card for Pioneer and we can certainly recommend it to deliver 4K screen res at ultra settings. Get a system with at least 2GB 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 Pioneer 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.
