How well can the Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D 3GB Edition run games
AMD Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D 3GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D 3GB Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D 3GB Edition is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2021 popular games. This short Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D 3GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 230 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D 3GB Edition can run Grand Theft Auto VI 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 Far Cry 6 is predicted to return a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D 3GB Edition at 1440p and researched how Grand Theft Auto VI might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked out Far Cry 6 which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And another popular game was Battlefield 2042 with predictions of L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D 3GB Edition is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.

How many years will the Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D 3GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D 3GB 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 280X XFX Double D 3GB Edition? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 54% better and can meet 634 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D 3GB Edition would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300 which meets 312 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 27% better performance.
