10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the Radeon R9 285 XFX Double D 2GB Edition is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.

Radeon R9 285 XFX Double D 2GB Edition is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

What FPS performance can the Radeon R9 285 XFX Double D 2GB 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. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 105 games in todays list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon R9 285 XFX Double D 2GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Dying Light 2 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 proceeded to look at Forza Horizon 5 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a weak 5 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the Radeon R9 285 XFX Double D 2GB Edition by researching Dying Light 2 leading us to predict a weak performance. Its FPS predictions for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Forza Horizon 5 and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 3 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was FIFA 22 which gets playable results with a 43FPS on Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon R9 285 XFX Double D 2GB Edition is going to struggle to keep a solid FPS, but a modern game could have a few options tweaked to get it playable at this res but on low graphics settings.

For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 76% better and can meet 616 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the Radeon R9 285 XFX Double D 2GB Edition is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300, which is 45% more powerful and can run 309 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.
