How well can the Radeon RX 480 GIGABYTE G1 Gaming 4GB run games
15 Sep 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon RX 480 GIGABYTE G1 Gaming 4GB is a high performing piece of gaming hardware, still confidently featuring in PC gamer computers. Radeon RX 480 GIGABYTE G1 Gaming 4GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2020 popular games. This short Radeon RX 480 GIGABYTE G1 Gaming 4GB 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 493 games in the list.

A Radeon RX 480 GIGABYTE G1 Gaming 4GB card at 1080p is predicted to see a weak frame rate when running Assassins Creed: Valhalla on Ultra - 20 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Horizon: Zero Dawn which is 50 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 43 FPS.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the Radeon RX 480 GIGABYTE G1 Gaming 4GB will run the upcoming game Assassins Creed: Valhalla to a weak performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 31 FPS, Medium: 26 FPS, High: 23 FPS and Ultra: 15 FPS. Another game tested was Horizon: Zero Dawn, L: 101FPS, M: 79FPS, H: 53FPS, U: 38FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, wih estimates revealing L: 87FPS, M: 68FPS, H: 46FPS, U: 33FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon RX 480 GIGABYTE G1 Gaming 4GB is ok at playing most games but might need to have the graphics settings lowered to medium preset in some cases.
