AMD Radeon R9 390 Performance Review

This Radeon R9 390 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.

Here is a performance review on how capable the Radeon R9 390 is at running the more popular games of 2021. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 397 games in the list.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon R9 390 can run Grand Theft Auto VI at 1080p and predict it will return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 44 FPS, Medium: 34 FPS, High: 23 FPS and Ultra: 17 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Far Cry 6 is predicted to return a weak 19 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Grand Theft Auto VI will deliver weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 33 FPS, Medium: 26 FPS, High: 18 FPS and Ultra: 13 FPS. Next we have Far Cry 6 running on Radeon R9 390 which is predicted to get L: 38FPS, M: 30FPS, H: 20FPS, U: 14FPS. And for performance contrast the popular FIFA 22 is predicted to get L: 178FPS, M: 140FPS, H: 95FPS, U: 68FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the Radeon R9 390 running at 1440p is a suitable graphics card for this larger screen res. In some cases we might expect some graphics option tweaks down from Ultra to High to help improve FPS stability when gaming at 1440p.

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