Gaming PC build Radeon RX 480 MSI Gaming X 8GB, Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz, 16GB performance review

This Radeon RX 480 MSI Gaming X 8GB graphics card, along with a Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz can run 498 of the top 1000 PC games released. A gaming PC like this has a Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz weak point. If this component was upgraded then the system could play up to 741 games from the 1000 most demanding games of today.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, we put the 1440p screen resolution as the better choice for the Radeon RX 480 MSI Gaming X 8GB here. But if you are looking for strong FPS at the top end of graphics quality then you would be aiming for 1080p Ultra or 1080p High. Here are some Low Vs Ultra frame rates that we think you should consider. 1080p High graphics setting gets 73 FPS and Ultra is 52 FPS. Then moving on to the 1440p FPS with Low setting: 105 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 82 FPS, 1440p High setting: 56 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 40 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, we put the 1440p screen resolution as the better choice for the Radeon RX 480 MSI Gaming X 8GB here. But if you are looking for strong FPS at the top end of graphics quality then you would be aiming for 1080p Ultra or 1080p High. Here are some Low Vs Ultra frame rates that we think you should consider. 1080p High graphics setting gets 73 FPS and Ultra is 52 FPS. Then moving on to the 1440p FPS with Low setting: 105 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 82 FPS, 1440p High setting: 56 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 40 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 163 FPS at 1080p Ultra, but would advise moving up to 1440p Ultra to get 124 frames per second or even 74 FPS at 4K Ultra as the Radeon RX 480 MSI Gaming X 8GB 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.
