Modern Warfare 3

Radeon RX 5900

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5900 Performance Review

The experience of playing Modern Warfare 3 through a 0 year old Radeon RX 5900 is going to return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Those frames are achieved on Modern Warfare 3 when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX 5900 overshadows the Modern Warfare 3 recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 200+ frames per sec. Using the graphics card release price, this is a $0 cost per FPS and a $0 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

Crank things up is what we say. Ultra 4K is our recommended game settings for Modern Warfare 3, as long as you have 3GB of RAM or more. A good processor component to help with these settings would be the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X.

To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the Radeon RX 5900 card will play Modern Warfare 3 at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 200+ frame rate, 1440p can deliver 200+ FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 200+ frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.
