Monster Hunter World PC performance: AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT
I do love my slightly melty-looking AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT. It might give me a small panic attack every time I take it out of my PC when it’s still a bit warm, but this is still one of the best graphics cards you can buy today for flawless 1440p gaming.
Indeed, much like the regular RX 5700, there’s now no real reason to settle for one of AMD’s reference models of this particular card, as there are now plenty of faster and better-cooled editions available from third party manufacturers. As a result, you’ll probably get slightly faster speeds from one of those than what I’ve detailed below. Either way, though there’s still plenty to like here, regardless of model type.
Can I play this at 1920×1080?
A big tick for this one. Crank it up to Highest and enjoy a smooth average of 82fps for your trouble.
Can I play this at 2560×1440?
Two ticks here. Once again, you’ve got enough power here to put it straight up to Highest and get a lovely average of 59fps here, although if you really want to be on the safe side, then perhaps an average of 83fps on High will do instead?
Can I play this at 4K?
By golly, the RX 5700 XT has only gone and got three whole ticks. Who’d have thought!? Like other AMD cards I’ve detailed here, there’s really not that much difference between Mid and High for a card of this calibre, so you may as well bump it up to High and enjoy a highly playable average of 44fps at this resolution. Sure, it won’t be quite as smooth as playing at 1440p, but when Mid will only get you an average of 46fps, it’s hardly worth making the drop for the sake of two extra frames. So go and enjoy those high res textures. You deserve it.
