The Extinction

Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB Performance Review

The experience of playing The Extinction through a 4 year old Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 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 199 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 R5 1600X and Ultra 4K would be a smooth experience.

To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB card will play The Extinction at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 199 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 200+ FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 200+ frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $0.91, 1440p costs $1.20 and 4K costs $2.01.
