Gaming PC build Radeon R9 290 XFX Black Edition, Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz, 8GB performance review

This gaming PC performance puts its 3 key components (8GB, Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz, Radeon R9 290 XFX Black Edition) as better than 369 games from the top 1000 most demanding games of today. The hardware weak point in this gaming pc is Radeon R9 290 XFX Black Edition. If this bottleneck was upgraded, then the number of games (from the top 1000 games list) it could run would increase to 448 at recommended requirement.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, go with a 1080p screen res setup for the Radeon R9 290 XFX Black Edition. Then, when we look at the Red Dead Redemption 2 Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we think it is best run at Medium setting or a bit higher. For comparison, the returning frame rates would look a bit like this - 1080p Medium 90 FPS, 1080p High setting: 61 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 44 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 88 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 69 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, this GPU, Radeon R9 290 XFX Black Edition, is only suitable at running Cyberpunk 2077 on a small screen size resolution. Probably best suited to small laptop screens. In terms of Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we recommend considering medium or high settings at best.

3rd most popular game: Doom Eternal - In summary, the best resolution performance for this Radeon R9 290 XFX Black Edition looks to be 1440p. There is definitely a great 1080p Ultra result if that is more your requirement, with it pulling 52 FPS, but you certainly can move up to 1440p where we see it returning 104 FPS on Low 1440p, 82 FPS at Medium 1440p, 55 FPS on High settings and finally Ultra gets 39 FPS.
