Gaming PC build Radeon R9 280X Sapphire Vapor-X 3GB OC Edition, Core i7-6700K 4-Core 4.0GHz, 16GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i7-6700K 4-Core 4.0GHz processor, a Radeon R9 280X Sapphire Vapor-X 3GB OC Edition graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 258 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the Radeon R9 280X Sapphire Vapor-X 3GB OC Edition as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 915 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, while some might be tempted to play Red Dead Redemption 2 in 1440p resolution with the Radeon R9 280X Sapphire Vapor-X 3GB OC Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 79 FPS, Medium setting: 62 FPS, High setting: 42 FPS, Ultra setting: 30 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - To summarise, the Radeon R9 280X Sapphire Vapor-X 3GB OC Edition fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Cyberpunk 2077

3rd most popular game: Dragon Ball Z Kakarot - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the Radeon R9 280X Sapphire Vapor-X 3GB OC Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 52 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Dragon Ball Z Kakarot then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 105 FPS or the Medium returning 82 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 56 FPS and then Ultra gets 40 FPS.
