How well can the Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition run games
AMD Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

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

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

What FPS performance can the Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen 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 219 games in the list.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition shows us that FIFA 22 is getting a good result of 64 FPS, and then we are seeing Star Citizen predicted to return a playable 32 FPS while another game on our list is the Far Cry 6 which is getting 0 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Star Citizen on the Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition and predict it will get a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 64FPS, M: 51FPS, H: 34FPS, U: 24FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Far Cry 6 which seemed weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 0 FPS. Finally we then took a look at FIFA 22 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were reasonable at 49 FPS. Gaming at 1440p with the Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

How many years will the Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB.

Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen 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 925MHz, while the Boost clock remains the same.
Since the Boost Clock remains the same, expect no performance boost, when compared to the reference card.
