Desktop Tower Defense packshot image
The game is played on a map resembling an office desktop. The player must stop a set number of enemies, known in the genre as "creeps," from reaching a set point on the playing field. This is accomplished by building and upgrading towers that shoot at, damage and kill the enemy creeps before they are able to reach their objective. Unlike many other tower defense games, the path of the creeps themselves is not set; instead, the towers built determine the path of the creeps, who take the shortest path they can find to the exit. The game prevents making an exit inaccessible.

Desktop Tower Defense

Radeon RX 550 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 550 4GB Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old Radeon RX 550 4GB while playing Desktop Tower Defense we quickly see it can return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

Following on from those 1920x1080 screen FPS, we know this GPU is of a much higher performance than the recommended system specs. Even 4K Ultra returns 200+ FPS on Desktop Tower Defense. But it’s still worth considering the $0.02 per Ultra 4K FPS you would get compared to the $0.01 at 1440p Ultra.

This is a powerful graphics card for Desktop Tower Defense and we can certainly recommend it to deliver 4K screen res at ultra settings. Get a system with at least 0.064GB of RAM though. The PC’s processor would also want to be around the AMD Ryzen R3 1200X’s performance to get a smooth experience.

To summarise, Radeon RX 550 4GB graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Desktop Tower Defense screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 200+ FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 200+ FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $0.01 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $0.01 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $0.02 per frame.
