How well can the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB run games
AMD Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

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 2021. 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. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 380 games in todays list.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB can run Battlefield 2042 at 1080p and predict it will return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 59 FPS, Medium: 47 FPS, High: 32 FPS and Ultra: 23 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Resident Evil 8 returns a weak 15 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Battlefield 2042 will deliver weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 45 FPS, Medium: 36 FPS, High: 24 FPS and Ultra: 17 FPS. Next we have Resident Evil 8 running on Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB which gets L: 30FPS, M: 24FPS, H: 16FPS, U: 11FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Far Cry 6 is predicted to get L: 35FPS, M: 28FPS, H: 19FPS, U: 13FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor 4GB is not the best choice to run modern games.

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 are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. This PC hardware upgrade performs 73% better and can run 976 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB which is 65% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 967 games from the most demanding games today.

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.
