How well can the Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalAce 4GB Edition run games
15 Sep 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalAce 4GB 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 11 requirement.

Lets look at the Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalAce 4GB Edition game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2020. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This graphics hardware can run 238 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

A Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalAce 4GB Edition card at 1080p is predicted to see a playable frame rate when running Cyberpunk 2077 on Ultra - 42 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Assassins Creed: Valhalla which is 15 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is predicted to perform on this hardware, which gets a playable 37 FPS.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Cyberpunk 2077 on the Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalAce 4GB Edition and predict it will get a playable set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 85FPS, M: 67FPS, H: 45FPS, U: 32FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Assassins Creed: Valhalla which we predicted will be weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 11 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were playable at 28 FPS. In summary we feel the Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalAce 4GB Edition running at 1440p is not a first choice gaming resolution. While this graphics card would likely be more suited to 1080p gaming, you may be able to make some graphical tweaks in the game options to improve your stability at 1440p.

How many years will the Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalAce 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalAce 4GB Edition in your PC?
