Gaming PC build Radeon R9 280X Sapphire TRI-X OC 3GB Edition, Core i5-4590 3.3GHz, 16GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a Core i5-4590 3.3GHz processor, a Radeon R9 280X Sapphire TRI-X OC 3GB Edition GPU and 16GB system memory will be able to play 0 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 0 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the Core i5-4590 3.3GHz.

This PC, when compared to a popular game like Cyberpunk 2077 is a good way to review its gaming performance. In summary, here we are looking at a GPU that can only really run Cyberpunk 2077 at small laptop size screen resolutions. As for graphics settings, low vs ultra, we suggest around Medium to high at best for the Radeon R9 280X Sapphire TRI-X OC 3GB Edition.

2nd most popular game: Assassins Creed: Valhalla - Low Vs Ultra summary, shows us that playing Assassins Creed: Valhalla with a Radeon R9 280X Sapphire TRI-X OC 3GB Edition is likely to return poor FPS at a desktop sized resolution of 1080p or greater. So if you were to lower the resolution down to that of a laptop, like the 1366x768 screen size then you could get 63 FPS at high graphics setting. Making a bit more playable experience.

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War - To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this Radeon R9 280X Sapphire TRI-X OC 3GB Edition graphics card, but in so doing you would have to drop the graphics settings to pretty Low according to our assessment. But let the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War 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?
