The Extinction

Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB Performance Review

The experience of playing The Extinction through a Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB is going to return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Those frames are achieved on The Extinction when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

Playing The Extinction on Ultra 4k is certainly possible with this graphics card and we expect it will return around 183 frames per second at that top scale resolution.

Finding a PC with this gpu or better would return some strong FPS in The Extinction. We would definitely recommend running at 4K screen res and on ultra, before trying any lower screen resolution. You would also need at least 2GB of RAM. Perhaps couple this gaming PC with a processor that's as powerful as the AMD Ryzen R7 1700 and Ultra 4K would be a smooth experience.

In summary, if you are looking to play The Extinction in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 200+ frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 200+ FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 183 FPS in Ultra as well.
