Close to the Sun

Radeon RX 480 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 480 8GB Performance Review

Getting the Close to the Sun running while using a Radeon RX 480 8GB can see it could deliver a solid 85 FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

The Radeon RX 480 8GB is going to do great at 1440p. We can see that in Ultra 1440p we will avg around 47 FPS. At High setting it gets 65FPS, but it is also capable of bumping up to 4K in High settings. 4K High will return 39 FPS or 4K Medium gets 58 FPS. Converting this into a cost per FPS we are looking at $5.87 on High settings and $3.95 at Medium.

In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the Radeon RX 480 8GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 61 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Close to the Sun then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 123 FPS or the Medium returning 97 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 65 FPS and then Ultra gets 47 FPS.
