How well can the Radeon RX 480X 4GB run games
14 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the most powerful pieces of hardware available today, the Radeon RX 480X 4GB runs today’s game system requirements comfortably. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

What FPS performance can the Radeon RX 480X 4GB get on latest AAA 2020 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 799 games in the list.

Running at 1080p this card gets a strong frame rate from FIFA 21 with 182 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Phasmophobia which returns a good 71 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Watch Dogs Legion which we predict will get a good 60 FPS.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran FIFA 21 on the Radeon RX 480X 4GB to see that it got a strong set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 313FPS, M: 261FPS, H: 191FPS, U: 139FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Phasmophobia which seemed reasonable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 54 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Watch Dogs Legion where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were reasonable at 45 FPS. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 480X 4GB we get the impression that it is a very strong choice of graphics cards at higher resolution gaming. 4K gaming with this graphics card is certainly something that can be achieved across a number of the latest games and still achieve good graphics settings at those resolutions. Ultra 1440p is also a regular occurrence with this gpu.

How many years will the Radeon RX 480X 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 480X 4GB in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade
