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 390 XFX Double Dissipation 8GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen 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 286 games in the list.

We proceeded to look at Valorant to see how that compared and saw that it returned a strong 467 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Microsoft Flight Simulator will deliver playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 77 FPS, Medium: 60 FPS, High: 41 FPS and Ultra: 29 FPS.
