Half-Life 3

Radeon RX 490X 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 490X 8GB Performance Review

We can see that when playing Half-Life 3 with a Radeon RX 490X 8GB will deliver a solid 83 FPS. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

Radeon RX 490X 8GB can run at 45 FPS at 1440p on Ultra graphics settings, but increasing resolution to 4K for better visuals can be achieved on Medium graphics setting, returning 56FPS. Using the GPU release price we can see the cost per frame rate on 1440p Ultra costs $15.56 compared to the Medium graphics setting at 4K costs $12.50 per FPS.

To summarise, while it's not always a sure thing, this GPU certainly seems capable of delivering FPS in Half-Life 3. It feels that the Radeon RX 490X 8GB is going to be best run at 1440p for suitable frame rates, and while it still might struggle a little at Ultra 1440p, it will certainly do well in this resolution range. Here are some Low Vs Ultra frame rates that we can consider at 1440p. Low setting: 120 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 94 FPS, 1440p High setting: 64 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 45 FPS.
