InFamous: Second Son packshot image
Delsin Rowe is the star of Second Son, and you probably know someone like him: A 24 year-old who is absolutely convinced he’s destined for greatness; though so far that greatness has managed to elude him. He grew up just outside Seattle, Washington, where his great – if accidental – calling comes crashing into his life. After rescuing occupants from a fiery bus wreck, he discovers that he suddenly has the ability to direct, manipulate and even transform into… Smoke. Could he have absorbed this power from one of the teenagers he pulled from the wreckage?
Setting the scene: It’s been 7 years since the Cole MacGrath episodes and the world has clearly changed. Anyone showing signs of being a so-called “bio-terrorist” is immediately handed over to the Department of Unified Protection (DUP) — a government agency created to ensure there is never a repeat of the catastrophic events of Empire City and New Marais.

InFamous: Second Son

Radeon RX 580 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 580 8GB Performance Review

The experience of playing InFamous: Second Son through a Radeon RX 580 8GB is going to return a consistently high 140 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 InFamous: Second Son at 4K Ultra instead, where the Radeon RX 580 8GB would still get 45 FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $0 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0 at 1440p Ultra.

In summary, if you are looking to play InFamous: Second Son in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The Radeon RX 580 8GB can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 100 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 76 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 45 FPS in Ultra as well.
