10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This Radeon R9 390X PowerColor PCS+ 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.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2021 popular games. This short Radeon R9 390X PowerColor PCS+ 8GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 397.

The Radeon R9 390X PowerColor PCS+ 8GB Edition graphics card is predicted to return a playable performance on Battlefield 2042 at 1080p of 25 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Far Cry 6 which we predict will get weak frame rates of 20 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Resident Evil 8, which was getting 17 FPS under tests.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon R9 390X PowerColor PCS+ 8GB Edition at 1440p and researched how Battlefield 2042 might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 50 FPS, Medium: 40 FPS, High: 27 FPS and Ultra: 19 FPS. We then checked out Far Cry 6 which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 40FPS, M: 32FPS, H: 21FPS, U: 15FPS. And another popular game was Resident Evil 8 that returned L: 34FPS, M: 27FPS, H: 18FPS, U: 13FPS at 1440p. 1440p Radeon R9 390X PowerColor PCS+ 8GB Edition PC gaming is going to need to lower its graphics settings to medium on modern games.

How many years will the Radeon R9 390X PowerColor PCS+ 8GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 390X PowerColor PCS+ 8GB 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 390X PowerColor PCS+ 8GB Edition? A good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon R9 390X PowerColor PCS+ 8GB Edition would be the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti which meets 976 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 69% better performance. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, which has 60% better performance and can run 967 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.
