Close to the Sun

Radeon RX 480 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 480 4GB Performance Review

Playing Close to the Sun on the Radeon RX 480 4GB, which is a 4 year old graphics card will likely deliver a solid 84 FPS. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

Using the Radeon RX 480 4GB launch price as a benchmark, lets look at the cost per frame rate at various resolutions. 4K Ultra is $7.37, 1440p Ultra is $4.33 and 1080p Ultra costs $3.32. This graphics card is great at 1440p and here it gets 46FPS at Ultra, 64FPS at High and 95FPS on Medium settings. It might be worth moving up to 4K Medium to get 57FPS or perhaps High 4K to return 38FPS.

To summarise, we feel that with the Radeon RX 480 4GB you can enjoy Close to the Sun at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 46 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 64 FPS, and at Medium 95 FPS and then on Low it would return 121 FPS. The Radeon RX 480 4GB would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 60 FPS.
