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 310 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 314 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the Radeon R9 280X Sapphire TRI-X OC 3GB Edition.

This PC, when compared to a popular game like Red Dead Redemption 2 is a good way to review its gaming performance. 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 Red Dead Redemption 2 frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 62 FPS, 1080p High setting: 42 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 30 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 60 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 48 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?

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - 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: Modern Warfare frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 62 FPS, 1080p High setting: 42 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 30 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 60 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 48 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?

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding Halo: Reach frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 51 FPS, 1440p will get 85 frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 112 FPS. Based around the Radeon R9 280X Sapphire TRI-X OC 3GB Edition launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $0, 1440p frames cost $0 each and then the 4K costs $0 per frame.
