AMD Radeon R9 290 XFX Black Edition Performance Review

This Radeon R9 290 XFX Black 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 11 requirement.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon R9 290 XFX Black Edition 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 310 games in todays list.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the Radeon R9 290 XFX Black Edition shows us that FIFA 22 is getting a strong result of 83 FPS, and then we are seeing Back 4 Blood returning a playable 36 FPS while another game on our list is the Far Cry 6 which is getting 14 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon R9 290 XFX Black Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Back 4 Blood where it was playable. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 72 FPS, Medium: 57 FPS, High: 38 FPS and Ultra: 27 FPS. We added Far Cry 6 to our tests and saw it was weak with a 10 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested FIFA 22 which got 63 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a Radeon R9 290 XFX Black Edition is a reasonable choice for most modern games at 1440p, but you may encounter some need to adjust graphics settings down from Ultra to High in some cases to improve gaming stability.

How many years will the Radeon R9 290 XFX Black Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 290 XFX Black 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 290 XFX Black Edition? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti which is 82% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 972 games from the most demanding games today. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, which has 73% better performance and can run 961 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.
