While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the Radeon RX 580X 8GB is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a performance review on how capable the Radeon RX 580X 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. 725 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

A Radeon RX 580X 8GB card at 1080p is seeing a playable frame rate when running Dying Light 2 on Ultra - 35 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Days Gone which is 54 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Back 4 Blood performs on this hardware, which gets a reasonable 47 FPS.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon RX 580X 8GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Dying Light 2 where it was playable. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 69 FPS, Medium: 55 FPS, High: 37 FPS and Ultra: 26 FPS. We added Days Gone to our tests and saw it was playable with a 41 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Back 4 Blood which got 36 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 580X 8GB we get the impression that it is a reasonable choice at this screen size. You can always tweak modern game graphics settings to help you get a better High graphics setting experience at 1440p.
