The Source packshot image
"The Source" will be a firstperson shooter with a storydriven solo-campaign in which the player starts in an open-world and tries to gather his former team members of a military unit (team members will also be playable in coop mode multiplayer).
In Solo compaign, the player must manage his equipment (e.g. upgrade weapons and other stuff with ressources from the environment like weapon parts, repairkits etc), gather food and water to survive, fight against enemy opponents of different factions (militia gangs etc) and take missions to help locals to earn respect and support (useful for further intel about team members and other storybased information).
The Game will also contain a dynamic and individual "housing and barracks mode", in clear words: The player can seek housings and buildings for supplies but he also can fortify buildings and use them as a designated safehouse (rearming, resupply and other customizable options will be available in those safe places).

The Source

Radeon RX 490X 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 490X 8GB Performance Review

We can see that when playing The Source with a Radeon RX 490X 8GB will return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX 490X 8GB overshadows the The Source 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 $1.34 cost per FPS and a $0.80 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

Crank things up is what we say. Ultra 4K is our recommended game settings for The Source, as long as you have 2GB of RAM or more.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this Radeon RX 490X 8GB card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play The Source 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.
