Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB Performance Review

Getting the Red Dead Redemption 2 running while using a Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB can see it could return a reliable 66 FPS. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

The 36 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 31FPS on High 4K or drop it to Medium 4K to get 46 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 47 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Red Dead Redemption 2 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 95 FPS or the Medium returning 75 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 50 FPS and then Ultra gets 36 FPS.
