AMD Radeon R9 390X Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition Performance Review

This Radeon R9 390X Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2021 popular games. This short Radeon R9 390X Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 396 games in the list.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Star Citizen will get 52 FPS with the Radeon R9 390X Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition, Grand Theft Auto VI predicted to get 17 FPS and Dying Light 2 predicted to get 25 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Star Citizen will deliver playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 104 FPS, Medium: 82 FPS, High: 55 FPS and Ultra: 39 FPS. Next we have Grand Theft Auto VI running on Radeon R9 390X Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition which is predicted to get L: 34FPS, M: 27FPS, H: 18FPS, U: 13FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Dying Light 2 is predicted to get L: 50FPS, M: 40FPS, H: 27FPS, U: 19FPS at 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the Radeon R9 390X Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition, this is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

How many years will the Radeon R9 390X Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 390X Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 390X Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 69% better and can meet 975 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 60% better and can run 965 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB Performance Review

The GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2021. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 265 games in todays list.

A GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB card at 1080p is predicted to see a playable frame rate when running Star Citizen on Ultra - 34 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Dying Light 2 which is 1 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Far Cry 6 performs on this hardware, which gets a weak 0 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Star Citizen will deliver playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 68 FPS, Medium: 54 FPS, High: 36 FPS and Ultra: 26 FPS. Next we have Dying Light 2 running on GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB which is predicted to get L: 1FPS, M: 1FPS, H: 1FPS, U: 0FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Far Cry 6 gets L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card
