Starcraft 2 is split into three games, each one representing a playable faction.
Protoss, Terran, and Zerg. These three distinct and powerful races will clash once again in the fast-paced real-time strategy sequel to the legendary original, StarCraft. Legions of veteran, upgraded, and brand-new unit types will do battle across the galaxy, as each faction struggles for survival.
Legacy of the Void features The Protoss
Highly advanced technology and potent psionic abilities, the protoss once considered themselves the most powerful species in the galaxy.
One of their greatest strengths lies in their fleet, which boasts a variety of ships powerful enough to pound an enemy to atoms.

StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void

Radeon RX 590 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 590 8GB Performance Review

We can see that when playing StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void with a Radeon RX 590 8GB will return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

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 StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void at 4K Ultra instead, where the Radeon RX 590 8GB would still get 200+ FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $1.18 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0.70 at 1440p Ultra.

This is a powerful graphics card for StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void and we can certainly recommend it to deliver 4K screen res at ultra settings. Get a system with at least 2GB of RAM though.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this Radeon RX 590 8GB card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void at, because you can get 200+ FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 200+ frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 200+ FPS at 1080p Ultra.
