Gaming PC build Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, Ryzen R5 1600X, 16GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Ryzen R5 1600X processor, a Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 759 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the Ryzen R5 1600X as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 898 at recommended requirement.

This PC’s performance can be benchmarked against todays most popular game, Grand Theft Auto VI. In summary, while some might be tempted to play Grand Theft Auto VI in 1440p resolution with the Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 116 FPS, Medium setting: 92 FPS, High setting: 62 FPS, Ultra setting: 44 FPS.

2nd most popular game: New World - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 70 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on New World then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 140 FPS or the Medium returning 110 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 74 FPS and then Ultra gets 53 FPS.

3rd most popular game: The Ascent - In summary, while looking at Low vs Ultra settings this Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB should only play The Ascent on a small laptop screen and probably at less than High settings.
