How well can the Radeon RX 590 8GB run games
AMD Radeon RX 590 8GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the Radeon RX 590 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 590 8GB is at running the more popular games of 2021. 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. 767 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon RX 590 8GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Far Cry 6 and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 87 FPS, Medium: 69 FPS, High: 46 FPS and Ultra: 33 FPS. We proceeded to look at Grand Theft Auto VI to see how that compared and predict that it will return a playable 31 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Far Cry 6 on the Radeon RX 590 8GB and predict it will get a playable set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 66FPS, M: 52FPS, H: 35FPS, U: 25FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Grand Theft Auto VI which we predicted will be weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 23 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Battlefield 2042 where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were playable at 28 FPS. 1440p gaming on the Radeon RX 590 8GB is not a bad choice for a larger screen size like this. Some games will struggle though, but with some careful graphic option adjustments in-game you can normally find a suitable visual experience with this GPU at 1440p.

How many years will the Radeon RX 590 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 590 8GB in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 590 8GB? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 41% better and can meet 976 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the Radeon RX 590 8GB is the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, which is 34% more powerful and can run 967 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Radeon RX 590 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The new AMD Radeon RX 590 is an uprated version of the RX 580 on the smaller 12nm process node.

This RX 590 is the 8GB version.

Architecture
It equips a GPU codenamed Polaris 30, which has 2304 shader processing units, 144 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The RX 590 8GB central processing unit runs at 1545MHz and goes up to (xx)MHz when in boost and turbo mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 2000MHz.

Power Consumption
The RX 590 8GB has a power TDP requirement of 150W. This means it will require at least a 500W PSU with one dedicated 8-pin connector.

Performance
Early benchmarks indicate that the AMD Radeon RX 590 8GB will be around 10-15% faster than the Nvidia GTX 1060 in terms of gaming performance, and around 6% faster than the Radeon RX 580 model it is replacing.

System Suggestions
The new Radeon RX 590 8GB releases on the 30th October 2018 and is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a high-end processor, like the new Ryzen R5 and at least 12GB of RAM for optimal gaming performance.
