Game Setup

The SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon RX 5500 XT 8G GDDR6 is an 8GB card, and the SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon RX 5500 XT 4G GDDR6 is a 4GB card.

In all games we run in either DX12 or Vulkan API if possible.  In Red Dead Redemption 2, Metro Exodus, Gears 5 and The Division 2 we use the built-in benchmark runs.  In Call of Duty Modern Warfare, we perform a manual run-through at the beginning of the campaign run.  In Need for Speed Heat we perform a manual run-through in the open world of the game driving through the city and up into the mountains.  In Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Ghost Recon we used the built-in benchmarks.
