2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

Gamers upgrading will be considering the Radeon R9 390X HIS IceQ X² OC 8GB Edition graphics card as a serious price to performance entry point. This card will meet and play most demanding AAA games and do so with good graphics setting as standard, and confidently pushing past the recommended game system requirements needed to run today’s games. 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 2020 popular games. This short Radeon R9 390X HIS IceQ X² OC 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 386.

A Radeon R9 390X HIS IceQ X² OC 8GB Edition card at 1080p is predicted to see a weak frame rate when running Assassins Creed: Valhalla on Ultra - 18 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Cyberpunk 2077 which is 26 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Halo Infinite is predicted to perform on this hardware, which gets a playable 27 FPS.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon R9 390X HIS IceQ X² OC 8GB Edition at 1440p and researched how Assassins Creed: Valhalla might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 27 FPS, Medium: 23 FPS, High: 20 FPS and Ultra: 14 FPS. We then checked out Cyberpunk 2077 which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 51FPS, M: 40FPS, H: 27FPS, U: 19FPS. And another popular game was Halo Infinite with predictions of L: 53FPS, M: 42FPS, H: 28FPS, U: 20FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a Radeon R9 390X HIS IceQ X² OC 8GB Edition is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.
