Gaming PC build Radeon RX 480 PowerColor Red Devil 8GB, Core i7-6700 4-Core 3.4GHz, 16GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a Core i7-6700 4-Core 3.4GHz processor, a Radeon RX 480 PowerColor Red Devil 8GB GPU and 16GB system memory will be able to play 785 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 870 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the Radeon RX 480 PowerColor Red Devil 8GB.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. To summarise, we feel that with the Radeon RX 480 PowerColor Red Devil 8GB you can enjoy Red Dead Redemption 2 at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 40 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 57 FPS, and at Medium 84 FPS and then on Low it would return 107 FPS. The Radeon RX 480 PowerColor Red Devil 8GB would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 53 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - To summarise, we feel that with the Radeon RX 480 PowerColor Red Devil 8GB you can enjoy Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 40 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 57 FPS, and at Medium 84 FPS and then on Low it would return 107 FPS. The Radeon RX 480 PowerColor Red Devil 8GB would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 53 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Death Stranding - To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this Radeon RX 480 PowerColor Red Devil 8GB graphics card, but in so doing you would have to drop the graphics settings to pretty Low according to our assessment. But let the Death Stranding frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 70 FPS, 1080p High setting: 47 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 34 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 67 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 53 FPS. Our Low vs Ultra analysis tells us that you would be better placed running this at 1080p, but at least you could still tinker with graphics settings for 1440p to perhaps be passable?
