The Skies

Radeon RX Vega 8

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX Vega 8 Performance Review

Playing The Skies on the Radeon RX Vega 8, which is a 3 year old graphics card will likely deliver a struggling 37 FPS. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

The frame rate return for this gpu is unlikely to make large screen gaming much of an option here. It will only get around 42 frames per second on medium graphics settings at 1440p screen res.

To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this Radeon RX Vega 8 graphics card, but in so doing you would have to drop the graphics settings to pretty Low according to our assessment. But let the The Skies frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 55 FPS, 1080p High setting: 37 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 27 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 53 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 42 FPS. Our Low vs Ultra analysis tells us that you would be better placed running this at 1080p, but at least you could still tinker with graphics settings for 1440p to perhaps be passable?
