10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This Radeon R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X 8GB Edition graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

This PC hardware performance game review for the Radeon R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X 8GB Edition graphics card, when running 2022 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. The Radeon R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X 8GB Edition can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 395 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X 8GB Edition can run Far Cry 6 at 1080p and saw it return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 53 FPS, Medium: 42 FPS, High: 28 FPS and Ultra: 20 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Days Gone returns a reasonable 48 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Far Cry 6 to see how the Radeon R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X 8GB Edition dealt with it. It scored up a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 40 FPS, Medium: 32 FPS, High: 21 FPS and Ultra: 15 FPS. Next we looked at Days Gone which was playable with a 36 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at FIFA 22 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 68. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the Radeon R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X 8GB Edition, this is certainly capable of running larger monitor gaming at Ultra or High graphics settings.

How many years will the Radeon R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X 8GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X 8GB Edition in your PC? This Radeon R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X 8GB Edition card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X 8GB Edition?
