How well can the Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalKing 4GB Edition run games
15 Sep 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalKing 4GB Edition is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

How well will the Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalKing 4GB Edition run 2020 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. The Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalKing 4GB Edition can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 148 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a weak frame rate from Assassins Creed: Valhalla with 14 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Cyberpunk 2077 which is predicted to return a playable 41 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War which we predict will get a playable 36 FPS.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Assassins Creed: Valhalla on the Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalKing 4GB Edition and predict it will get a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 21FPS, M: 18FPS, H: 16FPS, U: 11FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Cyberpunk 2077 which we predicted will be playable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 31 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were playable at 27 FPS. 1440p Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalKing 4GB Edition PC gaming is not going to be able to keep stable frame rates at all times at Ultra 1440p on modern games.

How many years will the Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalKing 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalKing 4GB Edition in your PC? We think this Radeon R9 290 Club3D royalKing 4GB Edition has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.
