How well can the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB run games
12 Jan 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A strong performing piece of hardware, Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB can still meet a lot of the game system requirements of modern games. All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2020. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 486.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a weak frame rate from Microsoft Flight Simulator with 24 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Fortnite: Chapter 2 which returns a strong 96 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Cyberpunk 2077 which we predict will get a weak 23 FPS.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB at 1440p and researched how Microsoft Flight Simulator might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 48 FPS, Medium: 38 FPS, High: 26 FPS and Ultra: 18 FPS. We then checked out Fortnite: Chapter 2 which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 192FPS, M: 152FPS, H: 102FPS, U: 73FPS. And another popular game was Cyberpunk 2077 with predictions of L: 45FPS, M: 36FPS, H: 24FPS, U: 17FPS at 1440p. 1440p Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB PC gaming is ok at playing most games but might need to have the graphics settings lowered to medium preset in some cases.

How many years will the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB then a good choice would be 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB as this is better than 882 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 45% better performance as well. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX 590 8GB which meets 836 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 23% better performance.

Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
First off we should point out that this is not the new AMD Vega graphics card line. These new AMD Radeon RX 500 series cards are an uprated version of the RX 400 series that they are replacing. This MSI RX 570 graphics card is one of the higher performance models from the new AMD Radeon RX 500 Series.
The AMD MSI Armor RX 570 4GB graphics card released in April 2017 as an AMD performance gaming graphics card. This card competes against Nvidia's GTX 1050 Ti and replaces the older Radeon RX 470. As a Polaris refresh, the RX 570 runs at a slightly faster clock speed than the RX 470.


Architecture
It is powered by the 14nm Pollaris 20 GPU, which has 2048 shader processing units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.


GPU
The MSI Armor RX 570 processing central unit runs at 1168MHz and goes up to 1244MHz, when the boost mode is triggered. The reference RX 570 card's boost clock is 1244MHz


Memory
The MSI Armor RX 570 comes with a 4GB frame buffer of GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 1750MHz.


Power Consumption
The MSI Armor RX 570 has a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.


Performance
The AMD RX 570 MSI Armor delivers a Mid/High graphical performance for 2017. with the RX570 capable of running most triple AAA titles released during 2017 on medium to high graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution. With some adjustments and lowering anti aliasing this RX570 4GB card can confidently maintain 60+ frames per seconds on high graphic settings at 1080p. Moving to 1440p screen resolution and the graphics card may need to be adjusted down to medium in order to maintain 50-60+ fps.
System Suggestions
The RX 570 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid range R5 Ryzen processor and at least 8GB of system memory for optimal gaming performance from the RX 570.
