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 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 580 4GB Performance Review

Playing Trade Empires on the Radeon RX 580 4GB, which is a 4 year old graphics card will likely 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 4GB would still get 200+ FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $0.02 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0.01 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 AMD Ryzen R5 1600X’s performance to get a smooth experience.

To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding Trade Empires 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 RX 580 4GB launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $0.01, 1440p frames cost $0.01 each and then the 4K costs $0.02 per frame.
