Gaming PC build Radeon HD 8870M, Core i7-4500U 2-Core 1.8GHz, 8GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a Core i7-4500U 2-Core 1.8GHz processor, a Radeon HD 8870M GPU and 8GB system memory will be able to play 0 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 0 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the Core i7-4500U 2-Core 1.8GHz.

Todays most popular game is Red Dead Redemption 2, which provides a good performance benchmark for this PC’s hardware. In summary, you should avoid trying to play Red Dead Redemption 2 with the Radeon HD 8870M

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, you should avoid trying to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with the Radeon HD 8870M

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this Radeon HD 8870M graphics card, but in so doing you would have to drop the graphics settings to pretty Low according to our assessment. But let the Halo: Reach frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 67 FPS, 1080p High setting: 45 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 32 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 64 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 51 FPS. Our Low vs Ultra analysis tells us that you would be better placed running this at 1080p, but at least you could still tinker with graphics settings for 1440p to perhaps be passable?
