10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This Radeon R9 390X PowerColor Devil 8GB Edition graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Here is a performance review on how capable the Radeon R9 390X PowerColor Devil 8GB Edition is at running the more popular games of 2022. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 388 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the Radeon R9 390X PowerColor Devil 8GB Edition is running Resident Evil 8 and delivering weak performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 18 frames per second. Comparing this to Grand Theft Auto VI which is predicted to get weak results, where it averages 18 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Star Citizen, which is predicted to run at 48 frames per second.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Resident Evil 8 which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 36 FPS, Medium: 29 FPS, High: 19 FPS and Ultra: 14 FPS. Next we have Grand Theft Auto VI running on Radeon R9 390X PowerColor Devil 8GB Edition which is predicted to get L: 36FPS, M: 29FPS, H: 19FPS, U: 14FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Star Citizen is predicted to get L: 97FPS, M: 76FPS, H: 51FPS, U: 37FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the Radeon R9 390X PowerColor Devil 8GB Edition running at 1440p is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

How many years will the Radeon R9 390X PowerColor Devil 8GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 390X PowerColor Devil 8GB Edition in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months
