How well can the Radeon R9 280X Asus Matrix 3GB Edition run games
13 Dec 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The Radeon R9 280X Asus Matrix 3GB 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. Radeon R9 280X Asus Matrix 3GB Edition is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2019 popular games. This short Radeon R9 280X Asus Matrix 3GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 273.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Microsoft Flight Simulator will get 0 FPS with the Radeon R9 280X Asus Matrix 3GB Edition, Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order getting 0 FPS and Resident Evil 3 Remake predicted to get 27 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the Radeon R9 280X Asus Matrix 3GB Edition performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Microsoft Flight Simulator and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked the performance on Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order to see if that runs well. It was weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. 1440p gaming on the Radeon R9 280X Asus Matrix 3GB Edition is the wrong choice for PC gaming.

How many years will the Radeon R9 280X Asus Matrix 3GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 280X Asus Matrix 3GB Edition in your PC? This Radeon R9 280X Asus Matrix 3GB Edition card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered
