Factions packshot image
Factions is a completely different style of MMORPG. Where most MMOs follow the same tried and tested pattern of pre-made, story-driven content. Factions strives to provide a completely unique experience. An almost completely untapped game play style in the Fantasy MMO genre.
Some "sandbox" games promise open-ended game play, only to disappoint the player with the lack of essential sandbox features like the ones explained below. Factions strives to appeal to the niche gamer who craves a more realistic open-ended fantasy MMO. It will not appeal to every joe schmo and their sister as mass market games attempt to do.
Factions allows the player to play whatever role they choose. Whether you are more interested in combat, crafting, faction and/or town management, building a business empire, or any combination of these things, you will be able to play exactly how you want to.

Factions

Radeon RX 480 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 480 4GB Performance Review

Playing Factions on the Radeon RX 480 4GB, which is a 5 year old graphics card will likely return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

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 Factions. But it’s still worth considering the $0.64 per Ultra 4K FPS you would get compared to the $0.38 at 1440p Ultra.

This is a powerful graphics card for Factions and we can certainly recommend it to deliver 4K screen res at ultra settings. Get a system with at least 2GB of RAM though. The PC’s processor would also want to be around the Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz’s performance to get a smooth experience.

To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding Factions frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 200+ FPS, 1440p will get 200+ frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 200+ FPS. Based around the Radeon RX 480 4GB launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $0.29, 1440p frames cost $0.38 each and then the 4K costs $0.64 per frame.
