How well can the Radeon Sky 900 run games
12 Jan 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The Radeon Sky 900 GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games. DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2020. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon Sky 900 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 227 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon Sky 900 can run Microsoft Flight Simulator at 1080p and predict it will return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Fortnite: Chapter 2 returns a good 69 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the Radeon Sky 900 performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Microsoft Flight Simulator and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked the performance on Fortnite: Chapter 2 to see if that runs well. It was reasonable with a 53 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon Sky 900 is not the best resolution for this GPU, but if you adjust some graphics settings, perhaps lowering to medium or low at 1440p then this graphics card might be ok.

How many years will the Radeon Sky 900 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon Sky 900 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 Sky 900? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the Radeon Sky 900 then a good choice would be 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB as this is better than 882 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 100% better performance as well. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 57% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 752 games from the most demanding games today.
