Gaming PC build Radeon R9 290 Sapphire BF4 Edition, Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz, 16GB performance review

This Radeon R9 290 Sapphire BF4 Edition graphics card, along with a Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz can run 406 of the top 1000 PC games released. A gaming PC like this has a Radeon R9 290 Sapphire BF4 Edition weak point. If this component was upgraded then the system could play up to 922 games from the 1000 most demanding games of today.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, the Low vs Ultra graphics setting discussion brings us to consider 1080p as the optimum screen resolution for Radeon R9 290 Sapphire BF4 Edition when running Red Dead Redemption 2. The graphics settings and frame rates are as follows, Low setting: 111 FPS, Medium setting: 87 FPS, High setting: 59 FPS, Ultra setting: 42 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, the Low vs Ultra graphics setting discussion brings us to consider 1080p as the optimum screen resolution for Radeon R9 290 Sapphire BF4 Edition when running Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The graphics settings and frame rates are as follows, Low setting: 111 FPS, Medium setting: 87 FPS, High setting: 59 FPS, Ultra setting: 42 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - In summary, the performance delivered by this graphics card easily overpowers that needed by Halo: Reach. We expect to get a very strong frame rate of 136 FPS at 1080p Ultra, but would advise moving up to 1440p Ultra to get 103 frames per second or even 62 FPS at 4K Ultra as the Radeon R9 290 Sapphire BF4 Edition can handle this. It just comes down to your preferred resolution then tweak your graphics settings to deliver the desired effects, without a care for performance.
