Close to the Sun

Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB Performance Review

Getting the Close to the Sun running while using a Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB can see it could get a very strong 92 FPS. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

The 50 FPS on 1440p ultra setting seems to be a very good choice for running this game with this GPU. But it can also be pushed up to 4K, should you wish, where it can get 42FPS on High 4K or drop it to Medium 4K to get 62 FPS. For the 4K High setting it would cost $0 per FPS, or drop to $0 for each frame on Medium 4K.

In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 66 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Close to the Sun then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 132 FPS or the Medium returning 104 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 70 FPS and then Ultra gets 50 FPS.
