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

This Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 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.

Lets look at the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2022. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 391 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

The Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB graphics card is returning a playable performance on Dying Light 2 at 1080p of 26 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Forza Horizon 5 which we saw got playable frame rates of 40 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Resident Evil 8, which was getting 17 FPS under tests.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Dying Light 2 where it was weak. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 51 FPS, Medium: 40 FPS, High: 27 FPS and Ultra: 19 FPS. We added Forza Horizon 5 to our tests and saw it was playable with a 31 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Resident Evil 8 which got 13 FPS at Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB running at 1440p is not a first choice gaming resolution. While this graphics card would likely be more suited to 1080p gaming, you may be able to make some graphical tweaks in the game options to improve your stability at 1440p.

How many years will the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB in your PC? This Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB.
