Gaming PC build Radeon RX 480 8GB, Core i5-6500 3.2GHz, 8GB performance review

A PC with a Core i5-6500 3.2GHz can run 0 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the Radeon RX 480 8GB graphics card and 8GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the Core i5-6500 3.2GHz as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 477 games of our most demanding games list.

This PC, when compared to a popular game like Cyberpunk 2077 is a good way to review its gaming performance. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the Radeon RX 480 8GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 49 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Cyberpunk 2077 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 98 FPS or the Medium returning 77 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 52 FPS and then Ultra gets 37 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Assassins Creed: Valhalla - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Assassins Creed: Valhalla in 1440p resolution with the Radeon RX 480 8GB, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 71 FPS, Medium setting: 61 FPS, High setting: 53 FPS, Ultra setting: 36 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Genshin Impact - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the Radeon RX 480 8GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 47 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Genshin Impact then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 95 FPS or the Medium returning 75 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 50 FPS and then Ultra gets 36 FPS.
