This Radeon RX 570X 8GB graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

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

How well will the Radeon RX 570X 8GB run 2023 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 387.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the Radeon RX 570X 8GB shows us that Battlefield 2042 is getting a weak result of 10 FPS, and then we are seeing Star Citizen predicted to return a reasonable 48 FPS while another game on our list is the Dying Light 2 which is getting 27 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Star Citizen will deliver playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 97 FPS, Medium: 76 FPS, High: 51 FPS and Ultra: 37 FPS. Next we have Dying Light 2 running on Radeon RX 570X 8GB which gets L: 54FPS, M: 43FPS, H: 29FPS, U: 21FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Battlefield 2042 gets L: 20FPS, M: 16FPS, H: 11FPS, U: 8FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the Radeon RX 570X 8GB is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

The AMD RX 570X 8GB graphics card released in April 2018 as an AMD performance gaming graphics card. This card competes against Nvidia's GTX 1050 Ti. As a Polaris refresh, the RX 570X runs at a slightly faster clock speed than the RX 470.
The specs of the Radeon RX 500X series graphics cards are identical to the standard Radeon RX 500 series.
It is powered by the 14nm Pollaris 20 GPU, which has 2048 shader processing units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

The central unit runs at 1168MHz and goes up to 1244MHz, when the boost mode is triggered.

The RX570X comes with a 8GB frame buffer of GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

The AMD RX 570X 8GB has been built as a Mid/High performance graphics card for 2018. It will run most triple AAA titles released during 2018 on medium to high graphics at 1080p screen resolution. Performance is exactly the same as the Radeon RX 570. With adjustments and lowering anti aliasing this RX570 8GB 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 570X 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid range Ryzen 5 processor and at least 8GB of system memory for optimal gaming performance from the RX 570X.
