The Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalKing Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

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

What FPS performance can the Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalKing Edition get on latest AAA 2022 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 237 games in the list.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalKing Edition is running Days Gone and delivering playable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 30 frames per second. Comparing this to Back 4 Blood which is getting weak results, where it averages 21 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Grand Theft Auto VI, which is predicted to run at 0 frames per second.

Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalKing Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalKing Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 280X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "custom backplate", which reduces the card's temperature under load, significantly and comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was increased from 850MHz to 1050MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1100MHz.
There are no benchmarks available but we predict 5% performance boost over the standard edition and so this card should surpass a GeForce GTX 770 easily.
