How well can the Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2019 popular games. This short Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. The Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 280 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

Running at 1080p this card gets a weak frame rate from Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order with 0 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Cyberpunk 2077 which is predicted to return a weak 0 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which we saw getting a playable 27 FPS.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order on the Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Cyberpunk 2077 which we predicted will be weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 0 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 20 FPS. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition is not a viable PC gaming choice.

Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalQueen Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 280X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "custom backplate", which reduces the card's temperature under load, significantly and comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was increased from 850MHz to 925MHz, while the Boost clock remains the same.
Since the Boost Clock remains the same, expect no performance boost, when compared to the reference card.
