10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

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

Radeon R9 285 Asus Strix OC 2GB Edition is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon R9 285 Asus Strix OC 2GB Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 131 games in todays list.

Running at 1080p this card gets a weak frame rate from Resident Evil 8 with 0 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Far Cry 6 which returns a weak 0 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular FIFA 22 which we saw getting a reasonable 58 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Resident Evil 8 which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we have Far Cry 6 running on Radeon R9 285 Asus Strix OC 2GB Edition which gets L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And for performance contrast the popular FIFA 22 gets L: 116FPS, M: 91FPS, H: 61FPS, U: 44FPS at 1440p. 1440p Radeon R9 285 Asus Strix OC 2GB Edition PC gaming is not a first choice gaming resolution. While this graphics card would likely be more suited to 1080p gaming, you may be able to make some graphical tweaks in the game options to improve your stability at 1440p.
