The Metro Exodus benchmark put our hardware down. The point is the RX 580. But in defense of the tested components, this benchmark does not reflect the real data that will be in the game. It will be possible to play without any problems.

conclusions

In all games, performance is limited by the graphics card. But at the same time, we saw what the RX 580 is capable of with the overclocked I7 4770k. The RX 580 is fully compliant with the FULL HD gaming solution. She handled all games on ultra settings. Considering its cost, this is a great gaming solution.

The same can be said about the processor, overclocked I7 4770K shows excellent gaming qualities, despite its age. Overclocking gives a good boost to this processor and a second life.
