Trade Empires packshot image
Trade Empires is a PC game developed by Frog City Software in San Francisco and published by Eidos Interactive. During development its working title was The Silk Road; however, this was changed by Eidos Interactive as they were concerned about the title being too highbrow. Trade Empires is a pausable real-time strategy game about building a merchant empire. Gamers build vast transport and trade networks that change over thousands of years as new technologies are developed and more modern products are discovered. The rules of the game are simple; the variety comes in through the discovery of new products to trade and new ways to transport those products.

Trade Empires

Radeon RX 580 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 580 8GB Performance Review

The experience of playing Trade Empires through a Radeon RX 580 8GB is going to return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

And so following those results you could of course play this at 1080p, but this GPU is somewhat wasted at that resolution. We would suggest running Trade Empires at 4K Ultra instead, where the Radeon RX 580 8GB would still get 200+ FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $0 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0 at 1440p Ultra.

This is a powerful graphics card for Trade Empires and we can certainly recommend it to deliver 4K screen res at ultra settings. Get a system with at least 0.064GB of RAM though. The PC’s processor would also want to be around the Intel Core i5-7500 3.4GHz’s performance to get a smooth experience.

In summary, if you are looking to play Trade Empires in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The Radeon RX 580 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 200+ FPS in Ultra as well.
