Gaming PC build Radeon R9 280X Gigabyte 3GB OC Edition, Core i5-4690 3.5GHz, 8GB performance review

This Radeon R9 280X Gigabyte 3GB OC Edition graphics card, along with a Core i5-4690 3.5GHz can run 249 of the top 1000 PC games released. A gaming PC like this has a Radeon R9 280X Gigabyte 3GB OC Edition weak point. If this component was upgraded then the system could play up to 448 games from the 1000 most demanding games of today.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, the Low vs Ultra graphics setting discussion brings us to consider 1080p as the optimum screen resolution for Radeon R9 280X Gigabyte 3GB OC Edition when running Red Dead Redemption 2. The graphics settings and frame rates are as follows, Low setting: 79 FPS, Medium setting: 62 FPS, High setting: 42 FPS, Ultra setting: 30 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Halo: Reach - In summary, the performance delivered by this graphics card easily overpowers that needed by Halo: Reach. We expect to get a very strong frame rate of 113 FPS at 1080p Ultra, but would advise moving up to 1440p Ultra to get 86 frames per second or even 51 FPS at 4K Ultra as the Radeon R9 280X Gigabyte 3GB OC Edition can handle this. It just comes down to your preferred resolution then tweak your graphics settings to deliver the desired effects, without a care for performance.

3rd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, the Radeon R9 280X Gigabyte 3GB OC Edition will fail to deliver a suitable FPS even at lowest resolutions and graphics settings.
