12 Jan 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the Radeon R9 390 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2020. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon R9 390 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 455 games in the list.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the Radeon R9 390 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition is running Need For Speed Heat and delivering reasonable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 46 frames per second. Comparing this to Microsoft Flight Simulator which is predicted to get weak results, where it averages 24 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Cyberpunk 2077, which is predicted to run at 22 frames per second.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon R9 390 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition at 1440p with Need For Speed Heat, which got a playable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 93 FPS, Medium: 73 FPS, High: 49 FPS and Ultra: 35 FPS. We then checked out Microsoft Flight Simulator which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 47FPS, M: 37FPS, H: 25FPS, U: 18FPS. And another popular game was Cyberpunk 2077 with predictions of L: 44FPS, M: 35FPS, H: 23FPS, U: 17FPS at 1440p. 1440p Radeon R9 390 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition PC gaming is likely in need of some graphical option tweaks when trying to play modern games.
