10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid to low level graphics card, the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Nitro+ 4GB 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.

Lets look at the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Nitro+ 4GB game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2023. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This graphics hardware can run 437 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Nitro+ 4GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Days Gone and saw it deliver reasonable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 129 FPS, Medium: 102 FPS, High: 69 FPS and Ultra: 49 FPS. We proceeded to look at Star Citizen to see how that compared and predict that it will return a reasonable 49 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Days Gone which delivered playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 99 FPS, Medium: 78 FPS, High: 52 FPS and Ultra: 37 FPS. Next we have Star Citizen running on Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Nitro+ 4GB which is predicted to get L: 99FPS, M: 78FPS, H: 52FPS, U: 37FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Back 4 Blood gets L: 85FPS, M: 67FPS, H: 45FPS, U: 32FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Nitro+ 4GB we get the impression that it 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 Sapphire Nitro+ 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Nitro+ 4GB in your PC? This Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Nitro+ 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 Nitro+ 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 Nitro+ 4GB.
