10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the Radeon RX 590 HIS IceQ X2 OC 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.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the Radeon RX 590 HIS IceQ X2 OC 8GB. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2021. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 759 games in the list.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon RX 590 HIS IceQ X2 OC 8GB can run Dying Light 2 at 1080p and predict it will return playable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 98 FPS, Medium: 77 FPS, High: 52 FPS and Ultra: 37 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Back 4 Blood returns a reasonable 50 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Dying Light 2 will deliver playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 75 FPS, Medium: 59 FPS, High: 40 FPS and Ultra: 28 FPS.
