RX 590 with Core2 Quad Q8300 benchmarks at Ultra Quality settings

It is clear that the RX 590 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for RX 590 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. It is worth noting that the RX 590 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RX 590 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. This combination between RX 590 and Intel Core2 Quad Q8300 @ 2.50GHz is going to cause serious bottlenecks in many games and cause severe FPS loss.

For 1440p Quad HD , we were able to play Apex Legends, Resident Evil 2, Forza Horizon 4, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Fallout 76 at 60 fps to 71 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 65 fps.
