World of Warcraft: Legion

Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB Performance Review

Getting the World of Warcraft: Legion running while using a Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB can see it could 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 World of Warcraft: Legion at a respectable 75 frame rate on 4K Ultra.

The Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB along with the right system memory, 4GB, is very capable of getting top FPS results even at 4K Ultra graphics settings. We would recommend 4K as the way to go here. Especially if you have a AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 6-Core 3.8GHz processor or better.

In summary, the Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for World of Warcraft: Legion, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 166 FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 126 frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 75 FPS.
