Gaming PC build Radeon RX 480 XFX GTR Hard Swap Black Edition 8GB, Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz, 16GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz processor, a Radeon RX 480 XFX GTR Hard Swap Black Edition 8GB graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 789 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the Radeon RX 480 XFX GTR Hard Swap Black Edition 8GB as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 864 at recommended requirement.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Horizon: Zero Dawn. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the Radeon RX 480 XFX GTR Hard Swap Black Edition 8GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 54 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Horizon: Zero Dawn then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 108 FPS or the Medium returning 85 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 57 FPS and then Ultra gets 41 FPS.
