How well can the Radeon Pro Duo 8GB run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the Radeon Pro Duo 8GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

This PC hardware performance game review for the Radeon Pro Duo 8GB graphics card, when running 2019 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 969 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

The Radeon Pro Duo 8GB graphics card is returning a reasonable performance on Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order at 1080p of 53 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which we saw got good frame rates of 75 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Borderlands 3, which was getting 66 FPS under tests.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order which delivered playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 107 FPS, Medium: 84 FPS, High: 57 FPS and Ultra: 40 FPS. Next we have Call of Duty: Modern Warfare running on Radeon Pro Duo 8GB which gets L: 151FPS, M: 119FPS, H: 80FPS, U: 57FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Borderlands 3 gets L: 132FPS, M: 104FPS, H: 70FPS, U: 50FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the Radeon Pro Duo 8GB running at 1440p is certainly a good graphics cards for this increased screen resolutions. It can confidentantly get High or Ultra graphics settings across almost all current games at 1440p.

How many years will the Radeon Pro Duo 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon Pro Duo 8GB in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon Pro Duo 8GB? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the Radeon Pro Duo 8GB then a good choice would be 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB as this is better than 994 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 20% better performance as well.

This card is just 2x Fury X and Fury X doesn't compete with 980. Fury X is 15-25% faster than 980. even if you OC 980 it'll still be slower.

To be fair the comparisons are not always correct, remember the 980 is using GDDR5 memory while the Fury is using HBM-1. If you look up some fps numbers, the 980 does get beat out by the Fury X. Here:

It isn't just 2x Fury X. I'm very happy that AMD after all these years is still making dual GPU graphic cards. It's also a better option (comparing to CF or SLI) for those who require more space inside their case :)

Neuer31 - the comparison of the 980 and fury at 0% takes into power consumption which is 165 (980) and 275 (fury x). you have to read about the performance on the right side to understand how it came up with that number.

This will be a brute! The R9 295X2 still leads every other card today! So I wonder if this will make Nvidia want to finally create another dual GPU. If I had a Seasonic or RM series 1000watt PSU, I would not mind having a Fury x2.

It's just two fury xs in crossfire put into one card. the gtx 980 ti extreme rivals this being $300 cheaper at the same time.

The GTX 980ti isn't twice more powerful than a single FURY X.

VitoDaKing, you do realize that the R9 FuryX2 hasn't been released yet do you?
Just like the R9 295X2 was only 2% below 780Ti SLI but 32% better than a single 780Ti

I seriously doubt the 980 Ti extreme is even close to the Fury x2! Unless it was in SLI.

And from the benchmarks I've seen (which hasn't been very many due to never being able to afford a fury) the fury is quite a bit better at 4k resolutions, probably because of HBM.

Titan X SLI beats this but just for 20% but at 999$ this card would be the better choice :D

$300 cheaper, 6% worse. Argument invalid. Doesn't matter if the 980 ti is twice as powerful as the fury x.

A CF'd R9 FuryX is 22% better than a single 980Ti, do you expect a single Fury X2 to be 6% worse than a single 980Ti? When comparing cards make sure the cards have been released and compared in GD, the Zotac AMP! Extreme, if thats the one you are using as reference hasn't been updated as released so its specs and capabilities can't be trusted yet, so your argument is invalid.
