AMD Radeon R9 280X Performance Review

The Radeon R9 280X is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon R9 280X runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 219 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Forza Horizon 5 getting 17 FPS with the Radeon R9 280X, FIFA 22 getting 64 FPS and Star Citizen predicted to get 32 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the Radeon R9 280X by playing Forza Horizon 5 which yielded a weak performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 33FPS, M: 26FPS, H: 18FPS, U: 13FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was FIFA 22 and that was reasonable. This graphics card delivered 49 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Star Citizen which is predicted to get weak results with a 24FPS on Ultra 1440p. 1440p Radeon R9 280X PC gaming 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 280X graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 280X in your PC? This Radeon R9 280X card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered
