AMD Radeon RX 590 PowerColor Red Devil 8GB Performance Review

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the Radeon RX 590 PowerColor Red Devil 8GB is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

What FPS performance can the Radeon RX 590 PowerColor Red Devil 8GB get on latest AAA 2021 games?

Finally we then took a look at FIFA 22 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were strong at 82 FPS. 1440p gaming on the Radeon RX 590 PowerColor Red Devil 8GB is certainly capable of running larger monitor gaming at Ultra or High graphics settings.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 Performance Review

A mid to low level graphics card, the GeForce GTX 690 is found in budget machines nowadays, struggling to meet AAA system requirements.

All games with system requirements of DirectX 11 or lower are met by this card.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 690 game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2021. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This graphics hardware can run 450 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 690 shows us that Star Citizen is predicted to get a reasonable result of 51 FPS, and then we are seeing Battlefield 2042 predicted to return a weak 15 FPS while another game on our list is the Resident Evil 8 which is getting 32 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 690 by researching Battlefield 2042 leading us to predict a weak performance. Its FPS predictions for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 29FPS, M: 23FPS, H: 15FPS, U: 11FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Resident Evil 8 and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 24 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Star Citizen which is predicted to get playable results with a 39FPS on Ultra 1440p. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 690 is not a first choice gaming resolution. While this graphics card would likely be more suited to 1080p gaming, you may be able to make some graphical tweaks in the game options to improve your stability at 1440p.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 690 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 690 in your PC? This GeForce GTX 690 card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 690? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 690 is the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, which is 59% more powerful and can run 975 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, which has 51% better performance and can run 965 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.
