The Extinction

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB Performance Review

Playing The Extinction on the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB, which is a 4 year old graphics card will likely 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 200 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.

To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding The Extinction 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 Vega Frontier Edition 16GB launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $2.27, 1440p frames cost $2.97 each and then the 4K costs $5.00 per frame.
