Ashes of the Singularity

Planet by planet, a war is raging across the galaxy. The technological singularity has given humanity the power to expand further than they ever have before. Now, they compete with each other and their sentient artificial intelligence adversaries for control of newfound worlds.

ASRock’s Phantom Gaming RX580 8G OC pulls solid numbers in Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation and at the second highest preset it manages close to 50 FPS at 1080P and stays above 30 FPS even at 4K.

While the RX580 appears to do poorly here, you have to keep in mind AMD’s RX 580 launched over 2 years ago, which was minor update over the RX480 launched over 3 years ago now.


Far Cry 5

Anything can happen. Everything will.

Welcome to Hope County, Montana, land of the free and the brave, but also home to a fanatical doomsday cult—known as The Project at Eden’s Gate—that is threatening the community's freedom. Stand up to the cult’s leaders, Joseph Seed, and the Heralds, as you spark the fires of resistance that will liberate the besieged community.

Far Cry 5 sits at an enjoyable 70 FPS average at 1080p at maximum settings and even does about 50 FPS at 1440p.

We again see a similar trend in placement on our charts, a little behind the latest cards, but quite a bit ahead of cards from that era that have fallen off the charts.


Middle-Earth: Shadow of War
In the epic sequel to the award-winning Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, go behind enemy lines to forge an army, conquer Fortresses and dominate Mordor from within. Experience how the award-winning Nemesis System creates unique personal stories with every enemy and follower, and confront the full power of the Dark Lord Sauron and his Ringwraiths in this epic new story of Middle-earth.

Hitting 77 FPS average at max settings in 1080P is no easy feat, but we could also drop the eye candy just slightly and hold that 60 FPS line with 1440p as well.

We actually see the RX580 creeping up the charts in 1080p and 1440p here.


Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Experience Lara Croft’s defining moment as she becomes the Tomb Raider. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. As she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, Lara will ultimately be forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider keeps above 60 FPS average at 1080p, and again we could manage a very nice experience in 1440p with a slight reduction in eye candy.



Tom Clancy's The Division
We live in a complex world. The more advanced it gets, the more vulnerable it becomes. We’ve created a house of cards: remove just one, and everything falls apart.

Black Friday – a devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City, and one by one, basic services fail. In only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, an autonomous unit of tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, these agents are trained to operate independently in order to save society.

When society falls, we rise.


Tom Clancy’s The Division is quite playable maxed out at 1080p with an average over 60 FPS.


Here we again see the 2-year-old RX580 starting to chew into the list of more recent cards.
