A mid to low level graphics card, the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor OC 8GB is found in budget machines nowadays, struggling to meet AAA system requirements.

All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

Here is a performance review on how capable the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor OC 8GB 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. 442 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor OC 8GB shows us that Dying Light 2 is predicted to get a playable result of 28 FPS, and then we are seeing Back 4 Blood returning a playable 42 FPS while another game on our list is the Forza Horizon 5 which is getting 42 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor OC 8GB at 1440p with Back 4 Blood, which got a playable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 85 FPS, Medium: 67 FPS, High: 45 FPS and Ultra: 32 FPS. We then checked out Forza Horizon 5 which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 85FPS, M: 67FPS, H: 45FPS, U: 32FPS. And another popular game was Dying Light 2 with predictions of L: 56FPS, M: 44FPS, H: 30FPS, U: 21FPS at 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the Radeon RX 570 MSI Armor OC 8GB, this is a reasonable performance fit for this resolution. Some of the more resource intensive games may well need a few graphical tweak to get the most out of the graphics card at this increased resolution.
