Gaming PC build Radeon RX 470 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB, FX-6300, 12GB performance review

A PC with a FX-6300 can run 0 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the Radeon RX 470 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB graphics card and 12GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the FX-6300 as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 314 games of our most demanding games list.

This PC, when compared to a popular game like Horizon: Zero Dawn 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 470 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 46 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Horizon: Zero Dawn then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 93 FPS or the Medium returning 73 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 49 FPS and then Ultra gets 35 FPS.
